The Delay Bug Hits Again
Fans of the Life is Strange series still have a lot to look forward to in September. With Life is Strange: True Colors releasing September 10th and the Wavelengths DLC still on track for September 30th, they should stay busy. That’s good because the series’ third title planned for September, the Life is Strange Remastered Collection, now won’t arrive until 2022.
Life is Strange Remastered Collection updates both the original Life is Strange and Life is Strange: Before the Storm. This collection was set to release on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch, PC, and Stadia on September 30th. That’s no longer the case. Citing the ongoing difficulties caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the team have decided to move the Remastered Collection to 2022.
This will certainly come as a disappointment to some fans. Games not moving to 2022 at this point almost feels more strange. It is great to hear that True Colors is still on track to release next month. A release for fans still hits on the same day as well, in the form of DLC. Wavelengths puts you in the shoes of Steph Gingrich from Before the Storm. Watch for a first trailer for Wavelengths tomorrow.
This delay might hit Switch players hardest. While there are ways to play these two titles on the other platforms this collection is planned for, True Colors is set to be the series’ debut on Switch. These games aren’t available in any form on Switch until the Remastered Collection is ready. Still, we’re glad to hear the team behind these games is prioritizing the health of their team. We can only hope that the new planned early 2022 release ends up being as early as possible. You can check out a trailer for the Remastered Collection below.
