The starting grid for the PlayStation 5 starting grid is now a little thinner. Sony has announced that Destruction AllStars will be postponed to February.
Sony is originally scheduled to launch on November 12th along with the PlayStation 5. According to Sony, the game will instead be released as part of PlayStation Plus next year. The game is available to subscribers free of charge for two months. The strategy is similar to the one Sony used to release the Rocket League in 2015 and, more recently, Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout.
According to Sony, all pre-orders for the game will be refunded. This includes physical copies that were pre-ordered through retailers, as well as digital copies that were purchased through the PlayStation Store.
Sony says more details on the game will come next week, including a new trailer.
The news is surprising considering the game launch was just around the corner. Just a month ago, Sony opened pre-orders for the game and announced a $ 80 deluxe edition that includes skins and in-game currency.
The game was originally announced on Sony's Future of Gaming livestream in July, but has all but disappeared from presentations since then. The game wasn't shown at all during PlayStation 5's release date and wasn't announced as the launch title until later in the day in a blog post.
Due to the delay, the already easy starting grid of the PlayStation 5 looks even slimmer. Destruction AllStars was one of the few first-party titles that came into the system. Players looking to try a Sony-released title at launch can still pick up Spider-Man: Miles Morales, Demon & # 39; s Souls, and Sackboy: A Big Adventure on day one.
