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

The publisher announced on Twitter that Metal Slug Tactics would not be released this year. Instead, the strategy game will be released 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. Thoughts on the game's completion are unclear, the game may include roguelike elements.

Take-Two announced a delay for Marvels Midnight Suns on Monday afternoon, but did not offer a new release date. Both of these weeks have come after Nintendo had canceled the planned release date for Advance Wars 1+2: Re-Boot Camp this spring due to the Russian invasion of Ukraine.
