Square Enix has announced that Life is Strange Remastered Collection has been pushed back until early 2022.
In a statement on Twitter, it was revealed that due to the ongoing worldwide pandemic, the game is being delayed to "alleviate any additional pressure on the Life is Strange team". Nevertheless, Life is Strange: True Colors is still releasing on September 10, with its Wavelengths DLC dropping on September 30.
The additional time should give the developers more room to breathe, instead of pushing out both games so quickly.
It's also worth mentioning that the reaction to the E3 trailer for Life is Strange Remastered Collection was massively negative. Fans were quick to criticise the lack of upgrades and the steep asking price (£32.99/$39.99) which will accompany it. It's also a game that's readily available on Xbox One, meaning the Remastered Collection is launching on the same console as the original release with minimal improvements.
Hopefully, this extra time will allow the team to address some of these concerns and make the price point for the game feel worthwhile. The original adventure has become somewhat of a cult classic over the years, and it would be a shame if Life is Strange Remastered Collection didn't give it the attention it deserves.
