Sony has a few excellent looking PS5 exclusives lined up for 2021. Returnal from Housemarque Studios is one of them, but to give the team some extra time to polish the experience, the game has been delayed from its original March 19th release date.
In a tweet this afternoon, the official PlayStation Twitter account announced that the game is having its release date moved from the 19th of March to the 30th of April. This will give the team “extra time to continue to polish the game to the level of quality players expect”.
Update: Returnal has a new release date of April 30, 2021. SIE and Housemarque have made the decision to move the release date in order to give the team extra time to continue to polish the game to the level of quality players expect from Housemarque.

Returnal is a roguelike title taking place on an ever evolving alien planet. After each loop, combat situations and parts of the level will change, creating fresh new gameplay each round.
Returnal is coming exclusively to PS5 on April 30th. No other platforms are planned at this time.
KitGuru Says: Returnal had one of the most interesting trailers from Sony’s PS5 reveal last year. Are any of you planning on picking this one up?
