Left Alive’s Western Release Still Marked at “2019” With No Actual Date

While Left alive received a release date for Japan, the launch window for the North American and European markets is still simply "2019."

Following the announcement of the Japanese release date of Left Alive at Sony Interactive Entertainment’s pre-Tokyo Game Show PlayStation Lineup Tour, the western arm of Square Enix published the new trailer for the west.

The trailer is awesome, providing a good look at the three characters that we’ll play in Left Alive. Yet, the western release is not confirmed on the same day as the Japanese one (February 28th, 2019). For the moment we just have a generic “2019.” Unfortunately, the game didn’t make it for its originally announced 2018 window, but I doubt anyone is really surprised considering how much time has passed with no news about the game until Gamescom last month.

If you want to learn more about Left Alive, you can enjoy a lot of new details from Gamescom 2018an earlier batch of screenshotsthe original teaser trailer and the first full trailer with a glimpse of gameplay from last year. You can also read more about how Square Enix managed to recruit legendary Metal Gear Solid artist Yoji Shinkawa to work on the game’s character design, and how the game is intended to be a solid single-player experience.

The game is in development for PS4 and PC, but Producer Shinji Hashimoto told us that other platforms might be considered after launch.
