Platinum Games has confirmed that they are still working on their next game, Babylon’s Fall, after almost half a year with no updates. In December 2019, the developer promised to reveal more details and information about the game in summer 2020, but it looks like the COVID-19 pandemic may have derailed their plans.

Thank you to all fans who’ve been following along for updates on Babylon’s Fall.
While we hoped to reveal more about the game this summer, we can share that development on Babylon’s Fall is continuing to progress well, with the team working safely from home.
Square Enix and Platinum Games are committed to delivering an exhilarating experience and we look forward to showcasing much more on Babylon’s Fall to you as soon as we can.”
Babylon’s Fall was originally announced at E3 2018 for PS4 and PC with an initial 2019 release date. Square Enix later showed more of the game in action at the PlayStation State of Play presentation in December 2019, but not much has been revealed since then.
Platinum Games’ statement is reassuring, especially after two high-profile projects from them were previously cancelled mid-way through development in the past, including Scalebound and Granblue Fantasy: Relink.
In the meantime, you can rewatch the slick gameplay of Babylon’s Fall in the State Of Play 2019 trailer below.
