People Can Fly has announced that its upcoming shooter Outriders will be delayed from its February 2 release date to April 1. On the upside, we will get a demo on February 25.
“We believe it’s important that players get to experience a new IP like Outriders before release, so that you can decide for yourselves whether the game is something you wish to pre-order, purchase or play,” The game’s official Twitter posted today.

The demo will include all four classes so that you can have a few hours of gameplay with each. Like the full release, you can decide if you want to play alone or with other players as it is up to three-player co-op. Any progress you make will transfer over if you decide to purchase and play when it launches in the spring.
The push on the February date comes from a decision to continue “fine tuning” and “delivering a fantastic play experience at launch.” This was not the only trouble the studio has come across. Outriders was set to release last year; then, due to COVID-19, like many other games, it had to move to 2021.
After Outriders having to be delayed to April 1, how do you feel about it? Will you play the upcoming demo? Let us know all of your thoughts on this story in the comments.
