Delayed genius.

Developer and publisher Rebellion has announced that their upcoming strategic simulator, Evil Genius 2, has been delayed from a 2020 release to the first half of 2021.

The update essentially states that due to COVID-19 hitting them harder than expected and the studio transitioning to working from home, they are delaying the game until the first half of 2021 in order to "do what's right for our games and our staff". 

While this isn't great news for Evil Genius fans, Rebellion does intend on announcing a release date "as soon as we can" and updates on the title "sooner rather than later", which is nice to hear. If the game isn't coming out for 5-8 months, those waiting for the title can at least get some more info on the game before it comes out.

Steve Bristow, the Head of Design at Rebellion, also chimed in on Twitter about the delay:
