Swedish studio Embark confirm that they need more time to expand Arc Raiders and allow it to reach its fullest potential.
Arc Raiders was supposed to launch in late 2022 but Embark say they need more time to make this a proper banger and aim to launch in 2023.
"Arc Raiders is an ambitious game, and we will be using this extra time to expand the experience and allow it to reach its fullest potential," the studio say in the announcement.
Embark Studios promise to share more details about the game soon and even promise to start testing the game more extensively with players so perhaps expect closed alpha/beta announcements very soon.
Arc Raiders is a third-person shooter where players and their squad take on ARC, a mechanical race that has come to earth from space. The devs promise a strong focus on co-op play as you battle these giant machines.
It's currently planned to release of PC, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S.
While delays are always disappointing to the gaming community, we would rather play a memorable Arc Raiders game than a bad one so the decision to push the game's release date is always smart.
Hopefully, the team puts the extra time to good use and make a great game.
