The PlayStation VR exclusive title Iron Man VR has been officially pushed back until May.

Developer Camouflaj announced the delay in a Twitter post, stating that they made the decision to delay the game in order to meet the high expectations set for the project. The title was originally supposed to be released in just a couple of weeks, on February 28.

Iron Man VR puts players in the shoes of Tony Stark as he takes on Ghost, a mysterious villain with ties to Tony’s past. The game is a story-driven shooter that lets you experience Iron Man from a new perspective, flying through the city, solving puzzles, and blasting away bad guys all through the magic of VR.

Going into 2020, the first half of the year was looking like a promising time for video games, with a number of major releases seemingly one after the other. Unfortunately, it seems that all of the biggest releases for this first half of the year have gotten delayed. With the inclusion of Iron Man VR, there have been a total of four highly-anticipated titles that have gotten delayed this week alone.

While Final Fantasy VII Remake has only been pushed back by a month, from March 3 to April 10, other titles are not so lucky. Both Marvel’s Avengers and Cyberpunk 2077, two of the biggest games of this year, were pushed from their original dates all the way to September. The games were originally set for release in May and April, respectively, meaning that they are both delayed by several months.

While a delay or two can certainly be a good thing for gamers who find that the non-stop releases of high-profile titles can be a bit overwhelming, so many games being pushed back means that there isn’t a lot left in the first half of 2020. It’s mostly remasters and ports, like the Bayonetta and Vanquish remastered bundle in February, or the release of Metro Exodus that is coming to the Nintendo Switch.

At least there are still a few solid titles on the horizon, many of which are set for March, with heavy-hitters like Nioh 2, Doom Eternal, and Animal Crossing: New Horizons all hitting shelves. The latter was already delayed once, as it the game was supposed to come out during 2019’s holiday season. Hopefully none of these games end up getting pushed back as well.

As for Iron Man VR, you’ll be able to get your hands on it when it launches on May 15, 2020, exclusively for PlayStation VR.
