PlayStation has quietly announced a delay to it’s cat game Stray with a release now expected this summer.
The release window was previously set as spring 2022, but in a tweet (below) advertising indie games coming soon spotted by Eurogamer, PlayStation sneakily confirmed the delay.
Stray’s launch on PS5, PS4, and PC will mark two years since it was first shown at the PS5 reveal event, when it was originally expected to be a 2021 release.

Developer BlueTwelve’s objective is simple: “Our goal is to create a unique experience playing as a cat,” they said at the time.
But this isn’t your average house cat, as the players controls the kitty as it explores a robotic cybercity and tries to return home with the help of a drone called B-12.
BlueTwelve has been pretty quiet since the original reveal, only really sharing more information about the game in July last year when the postponement to spring 2022 was announced.
Several games from the original PS5 reveal, which took place in September 2020, have suffered from pandemic delays, with the COVID-19 doing game development no favours.
Gran Turismo 7, Horizon: Forbidden West, Deathloop, were among the biggest games to see delays, but Stray, alongside Goodbye Volcano High and Forspoken, remain the only games to remain unreleased.
