Returnal, the PS5 exclusive from Resogun and Nex Machina developer Housemarque, is set for a release date of March 19, 2021. The announcement was revealed during The Game Awards on Thursday.
As Returnal explains, the game lets you go deep into an Astra space scout named Selene, who is trapped in a constant resurrection. Housemarque says the game will offer fast loading times, along with haptic feedback. They also said players will be able to, “feel the natural ambience of this alien planet as the controller mimics its environmental effects.”

Sony previously announced Returnal during June’s first PS5 showcase earlier this year. Housemarque made a name for itself among PlayStation fans for its shoot ’em up hits, like Resogun, which debuted at the launch of the PS4, Alienation, and Nex Machina. In 2017, however, the developer announced plans to shift away from the genre due to poor Matterfall and Nex Machina sales. The studio had announced the shooter Stormdivers in 2018, but that project was put on indefinite hiatus earlier this year.
