Marvel’s Midnight Suns was one of my personal favorites from Gamescom 2021 last night. The trailer got me so hyped that I instantly asked myself all the questions that you read in the headline. If you’re like me, then I got you covered because I'll answer all of those questions for you today.

But first, if you haven’t seen Marvel’s Midnight Suns trailer yet, check it out here:

When Is Marvel’s Midnight Suns Release Date?

[Update, June 9, 2022]

At Summer Game Fest 2022, the release date for Midnight Suns was revealed. The game will come out on October 7, 2022. Finally! We literally can't wait, it looks so awesome. Check out the amazing new trailer here:

[Update, May 16, 2022]

A lot has happened since we originally wrote this article. A release on March 22nd never happened, as the game got pushed back to the second half of 2022. That's not so bad... after all, Hogwarts Legacy is struggling way worse.

Unfortunately, though, we haven't gotten an update since they moved the date. Until now. Well, nothing official, but the game got rated in South Korea. A rating usually happens right before a release date. If it happened now, and we're still talking about the second half of 2022, then a release date for Midnight Suns in August or September could be possible.
