One of Microsoft's big launch-window exclusives for the Xbox Series X/S has unfortunately been delayed. The Medium was originally due to release on the 10th of December, meaning it would have to compete with Cyberpunk 2077 without a delay.
Blooper Team says that the delay “wasn't an easy choice” but it seemed to be the right move “after careful thought and consideration”.

Of course, COVID-19 plays a role here, but so does “the current schedule of other games on the market”. Last week, Cyberpunk 2077 was delayed from November 19th to December 10th, meaning any game releasing on that same day or week is going to have a hard time gaining traction.
Now, The Medium will be coming to Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S and PC on the 28th of January.
KitGuru Says: It has been a while since I last played a really good horror game, so I've been looking forward to The Medium. Hopefully we'll get a chance to play it properly in late January.
