In 2018, Bandai Namco announced Digimon Survive and at the time stated the game would be released in 2019 for PC, PS4, Switch, and PC. Well, 2019 passed us by and now 2020 is close to coming to a close as well with no Digimon Survive release. Now, Toei Animation and Bandai Namco have confirmed that you should not expect Digimon Survive this year. Instead, the launch has been pushed back into 2021 though when in 2021 is anybody’s guess. Digimon Survive’s producer, Kazumasa Habu, released a short statement.
The Digimon Survive team would like to extend our thanks to fans from around the world for their support during development, especially in these difficult times. We had originally planned to launch Digimon Survive in 2020 but current world events have shifted our development timing and we have made the difficult decision to push Digimon Survive’s launch to 2021.
We thank you all for your continued patience as we work to create a fun and engaging tactical RPG game along with a memorable story for Digimon fans! We will share some exciting updates for Digimon Survive in Spring 2021, so please stay tuned for more information.
Kazumasa Habu, Producer of Digimon Survive.
There are no clues as to what will be announced in Spring 2021 for Digimon Survive. It could be the new release date or confirmation that the game will have an upgraded version for PS5 and Xbox Series X|S. At the same time as the announcement of Digimon Survive, Toei Animation also announced Gekijō-ban Digimon Adventure (Digimon Adventure The Movie), which would feature the original cast as adults. That appears to have been delayed as well since there is no news for it.
