Shadow Warrior 3 delayed to 2022

By Sean Carey,
Devolver Digital and developer Flying Wild Hogs have announced that Shadow Warrior 3 has been delayed into 2022.


Shadow Warrior 3 was due to launch in 2021, but as Devolver Digital explains on Twitter, "Shadow Warrior 3 needs a bit more time to sharpen its blades." A new release date wasn't given other than the vague "early" 2022 window, but Flying Wild Hogs says an exact date will be announced soon, along with more details on the game.

In Shadow Warrior 3, you play as Lo Wang, who teams up with former employer/nemesis Orochi Zilla to recapture an ancient dragon they released from its eternal prison. Much like previous instalments into the series, the game blends lightning-quick melee combat with fast-paced gunplay, with protagonist Wang using his air dashes, double jumps, wall running, and new grappling hook ability to take down an interesting mix of demonic enemies.

Shadow Warrior 3 will now launch for Xbox consoles in "early" 2022.
