Redout 2 was set to be released this month but it has now been confirmed that the anti-gravity racer has been delayed. However, it is only a short delay. 34BigThings has stated that Redout 2’s new release date will now be June 16th, with the game releasing on PC, PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and Switch.
In statement the developer said: “Hello Redout fans, We know you have been eagerly awaiting the release of Redout 2 later this month, but unfortunately, the fastest racer in the universe needs just a little more development time before it’s ready to go and will now launch on June 16 on PC, PS5|4, XSX|X1 & Switch. This will help ensure we’re firing on all cylinders out of the gate and delivering the best gameplay experience for everyone. We apologize for the inconvenience and look forward to racing with you all soon!
In our preview for Redout 2, Dom wrote: “Redout 2 really beds into its unique world vision of the future, and as a weapon-less racer there’s a purity to the on-track action that remains refreshing. While some may decry the loss of the original’s armaments, it means that this is a racer that lives and dies on your own abilities, and there’s none of those arbitrary Mario Kart-esque moments where you’re beaten by a lucky offensive pickup.
Anyone that has played the original knows how important the soundtrack was to the experience, and Redout 2 already sounds like it’s going to repeat the feat. Bringing in artists like Giorgio Moroder, Zardonic and Dance with the Dead, our preview gave us a thumping taste of atmospheric electronica. Further dynamic changes reflect the on-track action, so you have moments such as the music amping up on the final lap of each race, raising the adrenaline levels and cranking the atmosphere to incredible levels at the perfect time. It’s brilliant, heart-thumping stuff.”
