    Launch Delay for Additional Polish

    D3Publisher has announced a delay in the Western launch of the third-person action shooter, Earth Defense Force 6, which was initially slated for release this spring.

This decision affects the game's availability on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and PC via Steam, with no plans for release on Xbox or Nintendo Switch platforms. The delay aims to provide developer Sandlot and publisher D3Publisher with additional time to apply finishing touches and complete preparations for the game’s launch in Western markets.

    Backstory and Setting

    Earth Defense Force 6 unfolds in the aftermath of humanity's victory against the mysterious invaders known as Primers. Set in the year 2027, three years after the events of Earth Defense Force 5, the game explores a world where 90% of Earth's population has been decimated, and civilization teeters on the brink of collapse. Players will find themselves immersed in the ongoing efforts of survivors to rebuild while facing new threats to the planet's safety. Despite the hard-won peace, alien colonists left behind by the Primers have grown increasingly hostile, leading to escalating tensions and the emergence of invasive organisms threatening humanity's fragile recovery.

    The Earth Defense Force's New Challenge

    As the Earth Defense Force (EDF) rallies to defend the planet once more, players will navigate a narrative filled with perilous encounters and the daunting task of uncovering the true purpose behind a mysterious giant ring-shaped object that has appeared in the sky. With the future of humanity hanging in the balance, Earth Defense Force 6 challenges players to lead the charge against a new wave of extraterrestrial invaders and secure a future for the human species. The game promises a mix of intense action, strategic gameplay, and a compelling storyline that asks whether the EDF can avert total defeat and ensure humanity's survival.

    As fans of the series await the Western release of Earth Defense Force 6, anticipation builds for what promises to be another epic installment in the saga of humanity's fight against extraterrestrial threats. With the additional development time ensuring a polished experience, players can look forward to joining the EDF in its most critical battle yet this summer.
