Will Marvel’s Midnight Suns Launch This Year?

Firaxis, the company behind the XCOM games, and 2K (=Take-Two) are slowly coming to the end of development, and it’s about time.


When Marvel’s Midnight Suns was announced last August, it was scheduled for release in March, but news came in November that they had pushed the launch to the second half of 2022. And that’s a month and a half away, so it’s no wonder that the South Korean age rating committee has already reviewed the game (it popped up on Reddit), so it’s possible that there won’t be any more delays, and that we might even see “the superhero XCOM” in July, as Marvel’s Midnight Suns seems to have a similar gameplay style.

In August, we wrote the following about the game: “The game’s Steam page reveals a lot of information: “Marvel’s Midnight Suns is a new tactical RPG set in the darker side of the Marvel Universe, putting you face-to-face against demonic forces of the underworld as you team up with and live among the Midnight Suns, Earth’s last line of defence.

After centuries of sleep, Lilith, Mother of Demons, has been revived by Hydra through a twist of dark magic and science. Lilith stops at nothing to complete an ancient prophecy and bring back her evil master, Chthon. Pushed to the brink, the Avengers desperately look to fight fire with hellfire and enlist the help of the Midnight Suns—Nico Minoru, Blade, Magik and Ghost Rider—young heroes with powers deeply rooted in the supernatural, formed to prevent the very prophecy Lilith aims to fulfil. Together, they resurrect an ancient warrior—the Hunter, Lilith’s forsaken child and the only hero known to have ever defeated her. In the face of fallen allies and the world’s fate at stake, it will be up to you to rise against the darkness!

[…]Become the Hunter, the first customizable original hero in the Marvel Universe. Lead a legendary collection of heroes that span across The Avengers, X-Men, Runaways, and more as you customize your team, tailor your selection of abilities to suit your playstyle, and unlock iconic outfits that will delight any Marvel fan.

From the creators of the critically acclaimed tactical XCOM series comes a new engaging and profoundly customizable battle system that rewards clever thinking with Super Hero flair,” Firaxis wrote.”

Marvel’s Midnight Suns will launch in the second half of 2022 on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, PC (Steam, Epic Games Store), PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.
