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

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

Metal Slug Tactics, a cartoony sidecroller, will take players on a quest to shoot down soldiers and destroy tanks for the first time. According to Leikir Studio, the game will also include roguelike elements, although it's not clear how.

Take-Two announced a delay in Marvel's Midnight Suns on Monday afternoon, and did not reveal a new release date. Both of these delays came after Nintendo canceled the planned release date for Advance Wars 1+2: Re-Boot Camp this spring due to the Russian invasion of Ukraine. None of these games have a specific release date.
