Square Enix has announced that the Life is Strange Remastered Collection from Deck Nine Games has been delayed to early 2022 to “alleviate pressure” on the development team, the game was originally scheduled to release on the 10th of September 2021. Life is Strange Remastered Collection is due out on the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series and Stadia.
Here’s what Square Enix had to say about the delay:
However, due to the ongoing challenges of the worldwide pandemic, we want to alleviate any additional pressure on the Life is Strange team by giving more time between the release of Life is Strange: True Colors and the Life is Strange Remastered Collection.
For this reason, we have made the difficult decision to delay the release of the Life is Strange: Remastered Collection for all platforms—PC, PlayStation, Xbox, Stadia, and Switch—until early 2022.
