Bloober Team has announced it is delaying the release of the PC and Xbox Series X|S title The Medium until January 28th 2021. This announcement comes approximately a month after the developer had confirmed that the release date would have been December 10th. The reason for this quick change decision regarding The Medium’s release date has been made due to both the current state of COVID 19 in Poland, and the release of other games in that same window. While it is not specifically mentioned, one of those games is likely to be Cyberpunk 2077 which is now slated to be released on December 10th. Bloober Team’s statement is below.
After much careful thought and consideration, today we have made the difficult decision to delay the launch of The Medium to January 28, 2021. It wasn’t an easy choice to make, but one made due to the COVID-19 situation in Poland, as well as the current schedule of other games in the market. Bloober Team remains committed to delivering our biggest, most ambitious, fear inducing experience to date. The additional development time will allow us to add further polish, ensuring we deliver our innovative, genre pushing vision of interactive psychological horror. Rest assured, the delay will not stop us sharing information with you, and you can expect us to unravel a few more layers of The Medium’s great mystery soon.
The Medium follows Marianne, a medium who’s haunted by visions forced to live between both the real world and the spirit world. At times you’ll be able to explore both worlds simultaneously, controlling both versions of Marianne with a single analogue stick, investigating different elements found in each world. Marianne has varying abilities as well, able to tap into supernatural powers like Out of Body in the spirit world.
