The highly anticipated exclusivity of the PS4 and PS5 consoles is now available in advance
A long-awaited exclusive for the PS4 and PS5 consoles is coming out early. Right now, the PS4 and PS5 don’t have any exclusive or console exclusive releases, at least to note. And it couldn’t come at a worse time for Sony, with Xbox shipping both. Forza Horizon 5 this month and Infinite halo next month. However, early 2022 will be a whole different story. Not only is Guerilla Games coming out Horizon forbidden to the west exclusively on PS4 and PS5, but Sifu comes out, and now it’s coming out sooner than originally planned. Previously, indie developer Slocap announced that the game would release on PC, PS4, and PS5 on February 22. Now it comes out on February 8th.
According to the game developer, the team has simply made good progress on the game, so much so that they can release the game sooner. The announcement makes no mention of how close the original release date is to the release of Horizon forbidden to the west, Ancient ring, and Destiny 2: the queen, but we think those three games had an impact on the decision. Now the game is doing comfortably ahead of these titles, although it will always be in competition with Dying Light 2, which releases four days before, for oxygen.
“We are well advanced in the preparation of our game and we are delighted to be able to launch Sifu two weeks ahead of schedule,” said Slocap. “To celebrate, we have prepared two brand new gameplay videos that will be released today.”
For those who do not know: Sifu was announced just eight months ago during a PlayStation gaming report. Since then, it has been highly anticipated by PlayStation enthusiasts.
“Sifu is the story of a young Kung Fu student on his way to revenge, in search of his family’s murderers,” reads an official blurb on the game. “One against all, he has no allies and countless enemies. He must rely on his unique mastery of Kung Fu and a mysterious pendant to prevail and preserve his family’s legacy. “
