Marvel’s Iron Man VR has added to the week’s bizarre tally of major game delays, as its release is postponed until May.

It may not be one of the most talked about games of 2020, at least not yet, but Iron Man VR, from developer Camouflaj, looks to be a pretty neat experience and could allow players to live out their power fantasy of being the genius billionaire playboy philanthropist himself.

Unfortunately, earlier today, Camouflaj posted on its official Twitter account that it has had to make ‘the difficult decision’ to delay the game by a few more months. Initially planned to release 28 February, Camouflaj is now aiming for 15 May.

This makes Iron Man VR the fourth game this week to have been hit with a delay, and the second superhero game. It started when Square Enix confirmed that Final Fantasy 7 Remake would have to be delayed by five weeks, before they announced their Marvel’s Avengers game would be delayed by four months.

Many became anxious as that meant that it would be releasing in the same month as another big title, Cyberpunk 2077. But, in a twist of fate, CD Projekt Red announced that it would have to delay its game until September, now putting it in the same month as Avengers.

A quick glance at the responses to Iron Man VR’s delay shows that most are fully aware of the coincidences, with some expressing frustration and others being more understanding. A few are also joking that it’s because all these games don’t want to be released around the same time as Animal Crossing: New Horizons, which itself was supposed to come out in 2019 but was pushed to March 2020.
