Bright Memory: Infinite has its release date set for next month, the game’s publisher Playism has confirmed.
The sequel to frenetic FPS, Bright Memory, will be arriving on PC first via both Steam and GOG on November 11, 2021. As with the original game, Infinite will also launch on Xbox One and Xbox Series X though a date for this version hasn’t been announced at this time.
Created by one-man studio FYQD, Bright Memory originally caught our attention with its flashy use of Unreal Engine. Then of course there was its fast-paced “fusion” style of action gameplay which mixed shooting with superhero-like powers and brutal melee.
For more on Bright Memory: Infinite, here’s an official breakdown:
Bright Memory: Infinite expands on the visceral combat experience of its prequel Bright Memory, which thrilled hundreds of thousands of players on Steam and Xbox Series.

FYQD Studio worked closely with NVIDIA throughout the entire development process of Bright Memory: Infinite after the addition of ray tracing and NVIDIA DLSS to the original Bright Memory, and the release of the Bright Memory: Infinite Ray Tracing Benchmark. Bright Memory: Infinite features DLSS, ray-traced reflections, shadows, caustic effects, and global illumination, along with NVIDIA Reflex to minimize latency for an unforgettable experience.
In our Bright Memory review for Xbox Series X, we scored the game a 5 out of 10. While it had some interesting ideas, it was a bit all over the place. Our main takeaway was the hope that Infinite will prove to be a more robust, stable full package. We’ll find out on November 11th.
