That’s a blow to the Xbox Series, where The Medium is one of the top titles in its launch window – though it could sell a bit better outside Cyberpunk’s sizable shadow as well.
Statement from developer Bloober Team explained, “It was not an easy option, but one was given due to the COVID-19 situation in Poland, as well as the current schedule of the games. Bloober Team remains committed to delivering our biggest, most ambitious frightening experience to date.Additional development time will allow us to further polish, assuring us offers creative vision, promoting the genre of interactive psychological horror. “
