Digimon Survive was originally meant to come out in 2019. Now as you probably guessed, the game missed that initial release date and Bandai Namco has just announced that the game has been, once again, delayed. As such, this new Digimon game now targets a 2021 release date.
According to its development team, the game has been delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Naturally, the team will use this extra time in order to further polish and improve the game. Moreover, it promises to share some exciting updates in Spring 2021.

Digimon Survive sees a brand-new group of teenagers, led by Takuma Momozuka, get lost on a school camping trip, finding them transported to a strange new world of monsters and danger. As they fight their way back home through an animated world of difficult decisions and deadly battles, players’ choices throughout the game will impact the evolution of their monster allies, and the final ending.
Digimon Survive will have 3D graphics. However, its battles will be in 2D, in a more classic SRPG style.
