We have good news and bad news for gamers awaiting the release of Metal Slug Tactics, a tactical turn-based shooter that is a spin-off of SNK's iconic series of arcade machine shooters.

  1. The good news is that the developers have confirmed that work on Metal Slug Tactics is still in progress.
  2. The bad news is that they simultaneously announced that the game will not be released until 2024.

Let's explain here why confirmation of further work on the title is so important. The game was one of the most interesting titles announced during the Summer Game Fest 2021. A few months later, the developers showed a short gameplay, and then they went silent and we did not receive any new materials for more than two years. Many fans began to suspect that the project had been quietly cancelled. Now we know that, fortunately, these fears turned out to be unfounded.

Recall that, according to the title, Metal Slug Tactics is a tactical spin-off of the popular series by SNK. In the game we will fight turn-based skirmishes shown from isometric perspective. All this will be shown in the brand's characteristic pixel art style.

Metal Slug Tactics is heading for PC and Nintendo Switch consoles.
