Wacky post-apocalyptic kung-fu RPG Biomutant is finally set to launch this year

Something to look forward to: One of the weirdest upcoming RPGs around, Biomutant, has made its way into several of our annual “most anticipated game” round-ups, but due to frequent delays, we’ve never had the pleasure of covering it properly. That might finally change this year, though: the game’s publisher, THQ Nordic, has indirectly confirmed a new release window for Biomutant.

This information came to light courtesy of a GamesIndustry.biz interview with THQ Nordic CEO Klemens Kreuzer. According to the outlet, Biomutant is “a release of great importance” to the publisher, and it’s set to launch sometime this quarter.

That’s encouraging news, especially given the absolute radio silence we’ve seen from the game’s developers, Experiment 101. The team did release an exciting new gameplay trailer last year, but it hasn’t said anything about Biomutant’s release plans in an awfully long time (the game was first unveiled at Gamescom in 2017).

If Kreuzer’s claims are accurate and no further delays occur, it’s probably safe to assume Experiment 101 will break that silence sometime this month or next month — if they wait much longer, it’ll be tricky to kick off a proper marketing campaign.
