Forspoken Delayed Again

A tweet from Square Enix reveals another delay to Forspoken, the "other-worldly adventure" originally known by the working title PROJECT ATHIA. This was originally due on May 24th and then delayed to October 11th. Now we're told to expect it on January 24, 2023, as the previous missed targets are not deterring it from continuing to pick specific dates. Word is the game is in the final polishing phase, and the "strategic" six month wait is being blamed on "key partners":
As a result of ongoing discussions with key partners, we have made the strategic decision to move the launch date of Forspoken to January 24, 2023. All game elements are now complete, and development is in its final polishing phase.

We would like to thank you for your continued support and patience on this journey. Your excitement for the gaming inspires us everyday and we cannot wait to share more about four spoken with you later this Summer!
