By Toby Palm

Hello everyone, Toby Palm, Outriders Community Manager, from Square Enix here.

Ever since we first revealed Outriders earlier this year, fans have asked when they might be able to finally get their hands on the game. We can fully understand why - Outriders really comes to life when it’s played.

We can now confirm that Outriders will be officially releasing on February 02, 2021 as a complete package on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, Xbox One and PC (Steam & Epic). We will also still be releasing on Stadia later in 2021.

It had been our full intention to deliver Outriders to you within the Holiday 2020 season. COVID-19 has certainly affected our operations over the past months, but the teams have all worked extremely hard to adapt to changing circumstances. While the core game is now in a largely complete state, our testing operations were unfortunately among the most affected by the work-process-restructuring caused by the novel coronavirus. To that end, we need a bit more time to get it right and ensure that the Outriders experience will be as smooth and issue-free as it possibly can be when we launch. It is our utmost priority to give you the best and most complete Outriders experience possible, at all costs.

We are also very happy to share that Outriders will support a complete cross-play experience, letting you play the full game with your friends and other players, no matter what system they're on. Furthermore, we will be offering everyone a free game upgrade from PlayStation 4 to PlayStation 5, and with Smart Delivery from Xbox One to Xbox Series X|S. This means that you can buy and play Outriders on your current platform with the confidence that it will be there for you when you decide to make the jump to the next generation of your respective console.

Global pre-orders across all platforms are now live and you can pick up Outriders here.:

We would like to thank you for your support and we truly appreciate all the kind messages we receive every day. We can't wait for you to finally play Outriders in February.

Until then, stay safe!

Toby Palm, Outriders Community Manager, Square Enix
