Metal Slug Tactics has joined the growing group of delayed strategy games

Metal Slug Tactics has joined the growing group of delayed strategy games ...

The publisher announced on Twitter that Metal Slug Tactics would not be released this year. Rather, the tactics game would be released sometime in 2023 in order to make it as explosive as possible.

Metal Slug Tactics, a cartoony sidecroller from last years Summer Games Fest, is a strategy game that draws on XCOM-like elements for the first time. However, Leikir Studio is unclear if the game will include roguelike elements.

Take-Two announced a delay in Marvels Midnight Suns on Monday afternoon, and did not offer a new release date. Both of these weeks delays follow Nintendo's decision to postpone the release of Advance Wars 1+2: Re-Boot Camp this spring due to the Russian invasion of Ukraine.
