Biomutant is a "release of great importance" and is still slated to launch this year

By Heidi Nicholas,
If you've been looking forward to Biomutant, chances are you've been looking forward to it for some time. Described as a "post-apocalyptic kung-fu fable," Biomutant was announced back in 2017. Each time we hear something new about the game, it looks more and more awesome, but those bits of news tend to be few and far between, and Biomutant's release date has been an uncertain question for some time now. However, THQ Nordic CEO Klemens Kreuzer spoke to GamesIndustry.biz and called the game "a release of great importance" — and what's more, it's apparently still slated to be released in 2021.

It had been thought that Biomutant was expected to launch in Q1 of this year, which did seem a little soon for a game we hadn't heard much about lately, but THQ Nordic confirmed to GI.biz that the release window is actually just 2021. We did hear way back at the beginning of 2020 that Biomutant is in the "final stages" of development, with new gameplay footage and new features being revealed a few months later, so 2021 does look promising.

It would be good to see some more updates on Biomutant soon, which is definitely one of the most intriguing launches coming up. The game looks like a big mash-up of genres, and it will be interesting to see how these all fit together. Most recently, Lars Wingefors, the CEO of Embracer Group — the parent company to THQ Nordic — said that the Biomutant devs are ambitious to "offer a lot of replayability" and that it's a "huge game." He also confirmed again that the team is "in the final completion of the game."

Hopefully, we'll hear more about Biomutant soon. It's still slated to release in 2021, so maybe we'll get a more concrete release date or a new trailer later this year; either way, we'll keep you posted.
