Today, the PlayStation 5 launch line of games has been reduced somewhat, with Sony announcing the delay for Destruction AllStars. The game has been delayed for a few months, which means we won’t see it released until 2021. While other PS5 release titles have received most of the attention – Spider-Man: Miles Morales and Sony’s Demon’s Souls remake, to quote some – it definitely still hurts to see any release titles delayed.
This may be good news for customers interested in purchasing Destruction AllStars, because as it announced the delay today, Sony also revealed that when the game launches in February 2021, it will be offered through PlayStation Plus.
Not only that, but Destruction AllStars will be available through PlayStation Plus for two months instead of the usual one-month window. So, if you were looking forward to Destruction AllStars, you have a longer wait ahead, but at least when it launches in February, you can get it as a benefit for your PlayStation Plus subscription.
Sony did not give a more specific release date outside the February 2021 window, nor did it say why the game was delayed. However, in a post on the PlayStation blog, the company said that those who have already ordered the game from the PS Store, on the PlayStation website or at retail will have those purchases refunded.
We’ve been informed that a new game trailer will be released next week, so we’ll keep an eye on that. We’ll also let you know when Sony announces a new release date for Destruction AllStars, so stay tuned for more information.
