An errant PSN update leaks Ghostwire: Tokyo release date

Bethesda confirmed a while ago that Ghostwire: Tokyo is due out sometime in Spring 2022, but a recent leak might have outed just when exactly.

After working on a pair of psychological-horror gams in The Evil Within, Tango Gameworks' next game is more action-oriented but just as spooky. Unfortunately, Ghostwire: Tokyo missed its initial 2021 release date, with fans hoping that it would be available in time for Halloween. Now, it appears that a more specific release date for Ghostwire: Tokyo has leaked online.

If the leak is true, then the next few months are going to be huge for PS5 owners.

There are plenty of reasons why fans are looking forward to playing Ghostwire: Tokyo. For one, it's part of the shortlist of exclusive games for the PlayStation 5. Not to mention, it's made by Tango Gameworks, a studio founded by Shinji Mikami, the same guy who birthed well-known Capcom franchises such as Resident Evil and Devil May Cry. Unfortunately, just like a handful of games scheduled to be released in 2021, Ghostwire: Tokyo was delayed. Tango later revealed that Ghostwire: Tokyo would launch sometime in Spring 2022.

Fast forward to today and MP1st has spotted a recent update on the PlayStation Store page for Ghostwire: Tokyo. The update is no longer available, but MP1st managed to take a screenshot showing that Ghostwire: Tokyo is coming on March 24.

Unfortunately, Bethesda nor Tango has issued a statement confirming Ghostwire: Tokyo's release date. But, since it comes from an errant PSN listing, you might as well circle March 24 on your calendar.

Ultimately, it would make sense if Ghsotwire: Tokyo's release date was indeed March 24. In addition to the PSN sighting, eagle-eyed observers noted that Ghostwire: Tokyo had just been rated in Brazil and Korea last December and January, respectively. Ratings usually only pop up if a game is nearing its launch, which suggests that Ghostwire: Tokyo is coming soon.

If it's any consolation, Sony is expected to hold a State of Play event in early February. We'll know for sure by then if Ghostwire: Tokyo is indeed coming in late March.
