The Bloober team has postponed the release of the horror game The Medium. The developers cite the corona situation in Poland as the reasons, but also the month of December. Although no title is explicitly named, it can be assumed that one is referring to CD Projekt Reds Cyberpunk 2077.


It could have been so scary in a short time, now horror fans have to wait a month longer. Like the Bloober Team, responsible for games like Layers of Fear or Observer system Redux, announced the release of The Medium has been postponed.

Covid-19 and “other games on the market” are to blame!

As understandable reasons for the postponement, the developers give on the one hand the current Covid-19 situation in Poland and on the other hand the December schedule for “other games on the market”. In particular, the Bloober team does not name a competitor, but it can still be assumed that they are looking towards Cyberpunk 2077. Last were postponed two more projects with Everspace 2 and a Path of Exile patch.

The reasons for the postponement of the release are also understandable from an economic point of view, after all, The Medium is the Bloober team's most ambitious project to date. Because you rightly hope for good sales, you probably don't want to trip yourself up: competing with what is currently the most anticipated video game Cyberpunk 2077 hardly seems to be a good strategy.

After all, the developers want to use the extra time to work on The Medium. The Bloober team itself speaks of its psychological horror game as a "groundbreaking vision for the genre". It should not be quiet about The Medium after the announcement of the postponement until the release: They want to continue to feed fans with information about the video game. Last appeared a pretty creepy trailer for The Medium.

The game is available for PC-Steam and Xbox Series X or Xbox Series S can already be pre-ordered, but will also be part of the Game Pass. The game should now be released on January 28, 2021.
