Forspoken Release Date & Time – Countdown To Launch

Forspoken will be the year's first major gaming release from a AAA studio and publisher despite game delays. As publisher Square Enix is on track to keep with the game's release date, it didn't prevent multiple leaks from becoming public in the lead-up to Forspoken's anticipated launch.

Regardless, Square Enix has unveiled the game's PC requirements with a mammoth 150GB of storage required; players can get ahead by preloading and waiting for the game's global release. We've detailed when exactly Forspoken will be available in your region.
