Last month, the developer Ebb Software announced it would be delaying Scorn for Xbox until 2022.

It's now been confirmed this terrifying first-person title will be officially arriving next year in the month of October. The developer promises it will feature a story that's "mysterious, deliciously dark, and oozing with atmosphere".

This release date news follows on from the developer being criticised by fans last month for its 'hostile' update on the project - where it fired shots at Cyberpunk 2077 and told fans to request a refund on Kickstarter if they weren't impressed with the lack of communication.
