Earth Defense Force 6 Delays Its PS5, PS4 Invasion to Summer 2024 in the West | Push Square

The next instalment in D3 Publisher's insane Earth Defense Force series, Earth Defense Force 6, has been hit with a delay here in the West. Previously, the madcap shooter was locked in for the 14th March, but now it's targeting a somewhat vague summer 2024 launch. A bit of a shame, seeing as the game's been out in Japan since 2022!
Still, we're sure the EDF faithful won't mind waiting a bit longer. This is the first EDF title to be developed natively for PS5, so we're expecting an unprecedented amount of chaos when blasting giants ants, evil intergalactic robots, and everything in between. And hey, at least we've got Helldivers 2 to hold us over until the time comes.
Were you looking forward to Earth Defense Force 6 next month? Head back to the barracks in the comments section below.
Robert's been a dedicated PlayStation fan since the days of Tekken 2, and he still loves a good dust up. When he's not practising combos, he's usually getting lost in the latest 100-hour RPG, or, y'know, replaying The Witcher 3.
I have a feeling that after waiting for so long and having Helldivers 2 just come out, they didn't want to compete.
They want to make it look better before release.
@videoman190 That probably isn't it. The game has been out well over a year in Japan. This is just almost certainly localization delays.
And to improve the game at least for the PC and PS5 version
I think the first commenter is on to something: Helldivers 2 just did EDF better than EDF, so releasing the game in a few weeks won’t get many sales for EDF; players will still be enjoying Helldivers 2 for a couple months.
