Sad news, EDF fans, D3 Pulbisher has announced that Earth Defense Force: Iron Rain has been delayed until 2019.
Originally set to launch in 2018, the next entry into the Earth Defense Force series has been delayed until 2019. A reason for the delay was not given.
This title, according to developers Yuke’s, is set to be a more serious title than the game’s previous “campy” entries. Presumably, however, the game will still revolve around Earth being invaded by giant alien bugs. The game was initially announced at Sony’s Tokyo Game Show event in 2017.
The last Earth Defense Force game was Earth Defense Force 5 which launched in December 2017 in Japan. There’s currently no word on a western release for Earth Defense Force 5 or Earth Defense Force: Iron Rain.
