Then Survive is also there. It is no longer listed as a title they expect to be released in 2021, it now shows 2022.


Nothing overly surprising, but always nice to see the brand is doing well.

Luckily not entirely from the radar. 2022 is fine.

2022 isn't really fine when a whole bunch of people including me have been waiting since 2019.
I get that. But it's been an odd period what with Covid and all. It is still very late, and I really understand the frustration. I hope it's a good game, worth this wait.

That was the excuse when they moved it to 2021 after it missed the release date in 2020, which was itself pushed back from 2019 (although the 2019 release date was extremely unlikely from the start, admittedly).

It's probably 2022 but we can wait for Bandai confirmation since this is an "estimation"

I admit, I'm also tired of Survive constantly being pushed back, and it feels like it's partly a case of 'they announced it way, way too early' and partly a case of covid and partly a case of just mismanagement and development issues, and it's that last that worries me, since games that slip into development hell tend not to slip out of it again.

No, Covid wasn't the excuse they used. Someone at Bandai completely botched the translation of Habu's message. The original message mentioned that they had changed the game's engine which means a lot of their work was thrown into the trash. It didn't even mentioned covid at all.
Changing the engine is a big step back, and expecting the game to be out in about a year was pretty unrealistic. Of course, it's still their fault since they were the ones who set up such unreasonable expectations.

That changes things quite a bit, indeed. As the engine is the basis of the game.

This could be a very good thing for the quality, though, if they were willing to take this risk.

Pretty sure that isn't the case or else someone would've mentioned there was a difference in messages before you just now??

I admit that my japanese is...not great so if someone can find me where in the original message Habu mentioned covid, I will stand corrected.

In fact, onkei posted something about this on twitter after E3, and she is way better at japanese than me: https://twitter.com/onkeikun/status/1407430432250122245

Disappointing but not unsurprising. :(

Glad the anime seems to be doing well though.

Good to hear Digimon as an IP is doing so well for Toei. I mean, fourth overall? That’s actually huge. It’s going to be funny to see the inevitable “Adventure: was a failure” posts, like what we still see for tri. Or maybe I’m the only one who comes across fans like that lol.

Yeah I guess it does appear to say that, weird. This one does still mention they were supposed to give info in Spring 2021 though and that sure never did happen.

This is my not surprised face. Even 2022 is stretching it honestly, let's see some actual footage and then I might believe it's in-production. I'm mostly just curious to see what it looks like right now; at this point I doubt it will resemble much of what we saw previews for already. They definitely put the cart before the horse with the marketing too.

Hopefully the devs aren't working overtime for it...

At this point f em, again they announce delay at last possible moment, right before digifest, this time after promising info back in spring no less. This has soured me not on survive, but on digimon in general.
