Iron Man VR jumps aboard the delay train

How many more video games are going to be delayed this week? Final Fantasy 7 Remake got pushed. Cyberpunk 2077 did, too. Marvel's Avengers needed more time in the oven. Now another title has joined the ranks – Iron Man VR.

Developer Camouflaj delivered the bad news on Twitter this morning.

"In order to deliver on our vision and meet the high expectations of our amazing community, we've made the difficult decision to move Marvel's Iron Man VR to a May 15, 2020 release," the studio wrote. "We truly appreciate your patience and understanding. You'll be hearing from us again soon!"

Iron Man VR was originally scheduled to drop on Feb. 28, which is a little over a month away. We imagine some fans are pretty disappointed that they'll have to wait around two-and-a-half more months to don Tony Stark's famous suit.

We have to wonder where all these delays are coming from, though. Are there legitimate development concerns? Does it have to do with companies reassessing their financials? Did one delay make everyone else feel better about moving forward with delays of their own? It's not uncommon to see games move release dates around; it happens all the time. It is odd, however, to see so many do so in such a short period.

In the case of Iron Man VR, all we can do is take Camouflaj at its word that the game requires more work. This could be one of the bigger PlayStation VR games of the year, and perhaps one of the most important VR games of the year in general (along with Half-Life: Alyx, of course). It's understandable that Camouflaj wants to get it right, especially since it has the Marvel license.

We just hope that's the last major delay we hear about for a while.
