Housemarque Delays Returnal for Extra Polish
Returnal is delayed until April 30, Housemarque announced on Twitter.
Delaying the PlayStation 5 exclusive was a joint decision between Housemarque and Sony Interactive Entertainment so the developers could polish the game further and deliver what fans expect.
Update: Returnal has a new release date of April 30, 2021. SIE and Housemarque have made the decision to move the release date in order to give the team extra time to continue to polish the game to the level of quality players expect from Housemarque.— PlayStation (@PlayStation) January 28, 2021

Housemarque originally planned a March 19 Returnal release date, and the news follows a recent deep dive into the game's combat and roguelike mechanics.
Returnal follows Selene, a space explorer trapped in a seemingly endless cycle of death and rebirth. The only way out is pushing through Atropos again and again, uncovering the planet's mysteries and fending off its hordes of monstrous creatures. We can't wait to play it, so hopefully there won't be any more delays.
