Metal Slug Tactics has joined the growing clan of postponed strategy games ...

Metal Slug Tactics will not be released this year, according to the publisher on Twitter Thursday morning. Instead, the tactics game will launch sometime in 2023 in order to make it as explosive as possible.

Metal Slug Tactics, a strategy game developed by Leikir Studio, takes the cartoony sidecroller into an XCOM-like world of strategy games for the first time. While the gameplay isn't yet clear, the game will include roguelike elements.

Take-Two announced a delay on Marvels Midnight Suns on Monday afternoon, but did not specify a new release date. This week, Nintendo canceled the release date for Advance Wars 1+2: Re-Boot Camp due to a Russian invasion of Ukraine. None of these games currently have a release date.
