According to the latest rumours, Sucker Punch's action-adventure Ghost of Tsushima has been delayed to late 2020 but this doesn't mean that it will launch on PlayStation 5 exclusively.

Not a lot has been said about Sucker Punch's samurai action-adventure Ghost of Tsushima since the official reveal at E3 2018. The game is still a mystery and there is nothing on the release date. However, according to the latest reports, Ghost of Tsushima won't hit the planned release window, which Sucker Punch internally set for early 2020.

Sony already delayed the highly anticipated The Last of Us Part II to May 2020 and according to the latest info from Kotaku's Jason Schreier, Ghost of Tsushima is another game that has been pushed further into 2020 to account for The Last of Us Part II delay.

"Ghost of Tsushima doesn't have a public release date yet, but it'll also be bumped later into 2020 to account for this delay," Schreier wrote on Twitter. Furthermore, Schreier claims that this doesn't mean that Ghost of Tsushima is now exclusive for PlayStation 5 since Sucker Punch initially planned to wrap up the development in the first half of 2020. "Don't expect them to suddenly turn it into a PS5 game or anything, but it was originally planned for the first half of the year - not anymore," Schreier explained. 

At the moment, Sony are yet to confirm the delay but since the game never really had a release date in the first place, it wouldn't be surprising if the company stayed silent on the matter.

Unfortunately, the start of 2020 is shaping up to be quite slow for gaming. As we already mentioned, Sony also delayed The Last of Us Part II while Ubisoft also delayed three of their games - Watch Dogs: Legion, Gods & Monsters and Rainbow Six Quarantine. The trio will launch sometime between July and December 2020 and will also arrive to next-gen consoles.
