Biomutant Release Date Possibly Leaked Set To launch In March
According to a new retailer listing, THQ Nordic and Experiment 101’s upcoming open-world, post-apocalyptic Kung-Fu fable RPG starring Rocket Raccoon’s cousin is hitting PS4, Xbox One, and PC next month. More specifically, if a new leaked pre-order listing is to be believed, the long-awaited debut game from Experiment 101 will release on March 17, 2020, which is a Tuesday.
The leaked release date comes way of Instant Gaming, a smaller European retailer, which means it should be taken with a grain of salt. This isn’t Amazon, EB Games, or Best Buy, which usually produce reliable leaked listings. Smaller retailers like this are hit and miss. Sometimes they actually spill information, other times they are guessing at a release date or looking for traffic. Unfortunately, it’s impossible to know which of these is in play here.
In November 2019, Experiment 101 said that BioMutant would be released into the wild when it was ready, and that seemed to be soon, because the team was elbow-deep in the “final stages of polishing.” However, we should not take this date as gospel truth. Neither developer nor publisher has come forward to offer a concrete release date and listings on retail sites are, on occasion, mistaken. ShopTo did provide the March 17, 2020, date, too, which is another bit of (unofficial) proof to think about. In any event, we’ll keep you in the loop.
For those that don’t know: Biomutant was originally scheduled to release in 2018. Then it was delayed to the summer of 2019, before being pushed to 2020. In other words, it’s seemingly having some development issues. In development since 2015, it’s Experiment 101’s first game since it was founded in 2015 by ex-Avalanche developers who, until Biomutant, were working on the Just Cause series.
BioMutant will be released for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
