Chivalry 2 has been delayed and will now be released in 2021 on PC (Epic Games Store), Xbox One, Xbox Series X, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 5.

Announced by Torn Banner Studios, this delay is “necessary to allow Chivalry 2 to be the greatest game it can be, and one that realizes our vision of a “true sequel” to the original Chivalry: Medieval Warfare.”

The developer cites COVID-19 as a big factor for the updated timeline, but the extra time will allow them to “incorporate several quality of life improvements and also include what was originally post-launch content, in the release.”

While this will mean that more maps and game features will be playable at launch, horses will still be arriving after launch as they “need a bit more time in the training stables.”

Chivalry 2 recently completed its sixth round of its Alpha stage, and Torn Banner Studios reassures fans that this delay will not impact the previously-planned Summer beta. There is no specific date given yet, but more information will be coming soon.

Chivalry 2 was announced during E3 2019 and looks to bring players into their favorite medieval movie battle scenes. It features first-person melee battles of up to 64 players and will allow players to relive moments that invoke battles like Game of Thrones’ Battle of the Bastards.

During our IGN Expo earlier this year, we were able to exclusively confirm that Chivalry 2 would be headed to consoles alongside the previously confirmed PC version. Furthermore, they will all feature cross-play with each other.
