It had been our full intention to deliver Outriders to you within the Holiday 2020 season. COVID-19 has certainly affected our operations over the past months, but the teams have all worked extremely hard to adapt to changing circumstances. While the core game is now in a largely complete state, our testing operations were unfortunately among the most affected by the work-process-restructuring caused by the novel coronavirus. To that end, we need a bit more time to get it right and ensure that the Outriders experience will be as smooth and issue-free as it possibly can be when we launch. It is our utmost priority to give you the best and most complete Outriders experience possible, at all costs.

There's some good news to go with the slight delay, though, as Outriders will support a full cross-play experience between PC, consoles, and Google Stadia. Additionally, a free upgrade is being offered for those who purchase Outriders on PlayStation 4 or Xbox One and later want to move to PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series S/X.

Last but not least, a new release announcement trailer has been published. Check it out below.


Outriders, the third-person shooter/RPG in development at People Can Fly, has been listed for a 'Holiday 2020' launch window for a long time now without having a more concrete launch date.

A Steam page for the pre-order bundle, which includes the Hell's Rangers Content Pack, now lists the game for a February 2nd, 2021 release. However, the main Outriders product page still features the generic 'Holiday 2020' window.

We've reached out to Square Enix for comment and will let you know if we hear back.

OUTRIDERS is a 1-3 player co-op RPG shooter set in an original, dark and desperate sci-fi universe.

As mankind bleeds out in the trenches of Enoch, you’ll create your own Outrider and embark on a journey across the hostile planet.

With rich storytelling spanning a diverse world, you’ll leave behind the slums and shanty towns of the First City and traverse forests, mountains and desert in the pursuit of a mysterious signal.

Combining intense gunplay with violent powers and an arsenal of increasingly twisted weaponry and gear-sets, OUTRIDERS offers countless hours of gameplay from one of the finest shooter developers in the industry – People Can Fly.
