Life is Strange: Remastered Collection release delayed to 2022

UPDATE: True Colors also delayed on Switch.

UPDATE 12/8/21: Today brings word of another Life is Strange delay - this time, to the release of True Colors for Nintendo Switch.

This version of Deck Nine's upcoming all-new entry in the series is "running a little late", the franchise's Twitter confirmed today, and will now follow at some point later in 2021.

There's no delay to True Colors for PC, PlayStation and Xbox - though as we heard yesterday, the series' Remastered Collection will now arrive in early 2022. More on that below.

ORIGINAL STORY: Life is Strange: Remastered Collection will now launch for all platforms - PC, PlayStation, Switch, Stadia and Xbox - in early 2022.

This remaster is set to add facial motion capture, engine and lighting upgrades to Dontnod's original Life is Strange as well as Deck Nine's acclaimed prequel Before the Storm.

The series' all-new entry Life is Strange True Colors is still on track to arrive on 10th September, publisher Square Enix reassured fans this evening, while its Wavelengths story DLC starring fan-favourite character Steph will now take the Remastered Collection's old release spot of 30th September.

"Due to the ongoing challenges of the worldwide pandemic, we want to alleviate any additional pressure on the Life is Strange team by giving more time between the release of Life is Strange: True Colors and the Life is Strange Remastered Collection," reads a message from the development team. "We hope you understand."
