Digi-Bummer: Digimon Survive Delayed to 2021

Habu mentioned reorganizing the development team on Twitter a few days before the announcement (as translated by Gematsu) and mentioned “refocusing” Digimon Survive‘s development schedule.

Bandai issued a statement alongside the announcement, saying “Digimon Survive is a highly ambitious project and the development team is dedicated to providing fans with a complete experience at launch.”
