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

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

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

Metal Slug Tactics, a cartoony sidecroller that was first revealed during the Summer Games Fest, is a strategy game that combines cartoon characters and weapons for the first time. Leikir Studio states the game will include roguelike elements, although it's unclear how.

Take-Two announced a delay on Marvel's Midnight Suns on Monday afternoon, and did not provide a new release date. Both 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.
