High on Life recently got pushed back to a December 13th launch on Xbox Game Pass (despite Microsoft's release date oopsie last week), and the developer has now revealed a reason for the delay, or part of the reason at least. Basically, it has a lot do with avoiding the big guns this fall.
In an interview with GamesRadar, High on Life developer Mikey Spano said that one big reason for the delay was to avoid "missing out on the conversation", with the likes of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and God of War Raganarok launching in October and November, respectively.
Those two titles dropping in the next couple months wasn't the only reason for High on Life's delay though. The team also needed the extra time to improve the game's middle act, which at one stage wasn't quite as polished as act one and three.
At least we've got plenty of new gameplay to watch over and enjoy while we wait! High on Life showed up at Gamescom 2022 in a big way, including with a full 25-minute gameplay demo.
