Superbrothers Delay Jett: The Far Shore to 2021, Pushing Back Another PS5 Holiday Title

Superbrothers Delay Jett: The Far Shore to 2021, Pushing Back Another PS5 Holiday Title

Before Jett lifts off, the Sword and Sorcery EP makers say they need more time.

The PlayStation 5 has a release date, prices, and a launch lineup now, but the hard realities of 2020 mean its holiday lineup is looking a little slimmer than previously thought. This morning, indie developers Superbrothers announced that their "cinematic action adventure" title Jett: The Far Shore needs a bit more time, delaying its release until 2021.

Unveiled at June's big PlayStation 5 event and co-developed with Pine Scented, Jett is the first Superbrothers title we've seen since 2011's Sword and Sorcery EP. In Jett, players will step into the role of a scouter for a spacefaring group of humans. Upon arriving at an ocean planet, perhaps suited to the survival of the group, scouts in flying Jett crafts set out in search of a mysterious signal's source.

"As of now," Superbrothers writes, "it seems we're in need of more time in order for Jett to soar, and for the squad to complete this interstellar trip in good condition." Pushed into next year, Jett joins Kena: Bridge of Spirits and Arkane's Deathloop on the list of titles featured at Sony's June event that will no longer be making a holiday 2020 launch.

Jett will feature an open world and a linear story, but Superbrothers promises that there will also be things to discover after the credits "if you're eager to dig deeper." On PS5 in particular, Superbrothers says it's been focusing on leveraging both the DualSense controller's haptics and the 3D audio processing.

Jett is also coming to the PlayStation 4 and PC when it launches next year.
