Outriders delayed to February 2021, offers free next-gen upgrade

Outriders has been delayed to February 2021, Square Enix and People Can Fly have today confirmed.

The title, originally scheduled for a holiday 2020 release, will offer up a free current- to next-gen upgrade at release (though technically, next-gen will be current-gen at that time) and will also offer up cross-play across all formats: Windows PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series S & X and Stadia.

“We’re very happy to announce that we can offer full cross-play support and a free next-gen upgrade plan for Outriders players. The great thing about this system is that even if you’re not picking up your PS5 or XSX quite yet, we’ve got you covered and there’s no need to wait. If you buy the current-gen version of Outriders, we’ll give you the next-gen version for free,” said Jon Brooke, Co-Head of Studio at Square Enix External Studios.

Expect Outriders from 2 February 2021 on Windows PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series S, Xbox Series X, PS4 and PS5, with a Stadia release to follow.
