CHIVALRY 2 Has Been Delayed to 2021 Due to Coronavirus Pandemic, Torn Banner Studios Reveals
Developer Torn Banner Studios and publisher TopWare Interactive have some bad news for fans of Chivalry: Medieval Warfare, as its cross-gen follow-up has been delayed, and will now launch as some point in 2021.
As you've probably already guessed, the COVID-19 pandemic — which unfortunately shows little signs of letting up in the USA — is the main reason why the title won't make its debut this year as originally planned.
"As we settle in to working together in new ways in a COVID-19 world, our development timelines are shifting to utilize this additional time to better meet our core goals for Chivalry 2, as well as allowing us to incorporate [...] quality of life improvements and also include what was originally post-launch content, in the release," Torn Banner Studios said. "This means more maps and game features will be playable at launch than we had originally scoped. Horses however will be coming to Chivalry 2 after launch. They need a bit more time in the training stables," the Toronto-based game developer added.
Although the long-awaited Chivalry 2 has been pushed back, it's still coming to PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X and PC (exclusively via the Epic Games Store) with cross-play between all platforms.
Furthermore, the Chivalry 2 beta will also miss its summer window, but the studio is not ready to announce its new date just yet — as the team is currently focusing on improving the game based on community input.
Chivalry 2 is a multiplayer first person slasher inspired by epic medieval movie battles. Players are thrust into the action of every iconic moment of the era - from clashing swords, to storms of flaming arrows, to sprawling castle sieges and more. Dominate massive, 64-player battlefields. Catapults tear the earth apart as you lay siege to castles, set fire to villages and slaughter filthy peasants in the return of Team Objective maps.
Chivalry 2 is coming to PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC (via the EGS) in 2021.
