The Medium captured our consideration with its dual-reality presentation, wherein gamers can concurrently navigate the true world and its spirit-world counterpart. The incontrovertible fact that it is a console unique on Xbox Series X/S and never a generation-straddling sport like many launch-window titles solely added to the anticipation. While it was initially set for a December 10 launch, developer Bloober Team has introduced that it is getting pushed again a month into early subsequent yr.
The Medium will now be arriving on Xbox Series X/S and PC on January 28, 2021. While the delay is disappointing, it is onerous to argue with the explanations behind the choice. Lead sport designer Wojciech Piejko issued the next assertion:
“After a lot cautious thought and consideration, right now we’ve got made the tough resolution to delay the launch of The Medium to January 28, 2021.

The delay additionally will get the sport away from the blast radius of one of many yr’s most anticipated titles, too. Fellow Polish developer CD Projekt RED not too long ago delayed Cyberpunk 2077 from a deliberate November 19 launch to December 10. While Bloober Team would not name that newly packed date out in its assertion, it is tough to think about that it wasn’t not less than a contributing issue within the resolution.
