Ori and the Will of the Wisps Escapes the Quagmire of Delay

The path ahead is smooth for the Ori and the Blind Forest sequel as we near Will of the Wisps' launch date.

Ori and the Will of the Wisps has officially gone gold, according to Moon Studios. That means it’s all set for its promised March 11 release for Xbox One and PC.

Ori and the Will of the Wisps is the follow-up to 2015’s successful Ori and the Blind Forest, and it’s been in development since 2017. Originally set for a 2019 release, Will of the Wisps was delayed twice along the way, most recently at The Game Awards 2019.

However, going gold means the game’s reached its shippable, final form and won’t encounter any more production issues along the way, unlike some other games we could mention.

Ori and the Will of the Wisps follows the light spirit Ori on its journey of self-discovery. Along the way, there will, of course, be the massive foes, tight platforming, and gorgeous environments we’ve come to expect from Moon Studios.

Yes, it’s yet another March title — but it’s one we’re more than happy to have vying for our attention in that busy month.
