Tales of Arise Moving Out of 2020 Launch Window
The Tales of Arise development team at Bandai Namco announced today that Tales of Arise will be moving out of the 2020 launch window.
The latest chapter in the “Tales of” series, the decision was made to invest more time on its development to create the best possible experience.
According to Tales of Arise Producer Yusuke Tomizawa:
The goal for Tales of Arise is to provide a familiar but innovative gameplay experience to fans of the series, while pushing the technical envelope to deliver a high level of graphical quality to impress both long-time players and those who have never played a Tales of game. Development on the title has move steadily forward in 2020 as we overcame challenges along the way.
While COVID-19 has affected some aspects of development, we’ve done our best to adapt to the situation and have implemented remote development capabilities for our team.
However, to achieve the quality and provide the gorgeous experience we envision for our players, we will need more time to realize that vision and therefore we decided to delay the launch timing for Tales of Arise.
A new launch window update will be provided once we have more details to share.
The game will come out for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam.
