Weird West was very quietly announced as heading to Xbox Game Pass at launch as part of the latest I[email protected] Showcase earlier this month, and it was originally meant for January — but it's now slated for March 31st, 2022.
The reason for the delay is because the game "needs some wonky moments ironed out":
If you haven't heard of it, Weird West is described as "a dark fantasy reimagining of the Wild West where lawmen and gunslingers share the frontier with fantastical creatures." You'll journey through the story of a group of atypical heroes, with journey said to be "unique and tailored to the actions taken - a series of high stakes adventures where everything counts and the world reacts to the choices you make."
It's being developed by WolfEye Studios, which is made up of former Arkane Studios veterans.
Here's a bit more information on the game, along with a few official screenshots:
"Survive and unveil the mysteries of the Weird West through the intertwined destinies of its unusual heroes in an immersive sim from the co-creators of Dishonored and Prey."
