Nothing is more frustrating for video game fans who are anticipating a new game than years of silence from the publisher and the developer on the project. In most cases, the absence of news is a bad omen. That appeared to be the case for fans of Biomutant, an upcoming open-world action RPG from developer Experiment 101 and publisher THQ Nordic that is currently in development.
It was originally announced that Biomutant would be released in 2018, and it was scheduled to be released in 2018. The years 2018 and 2019 passed without the release of the title, causing fans to become concerned that it would be canceled altogether. At the time, it appeared to be yet another promising game that would be stuck in development limbo for a long time.
After a brief hiatus in 2020, THQ Nordic confirmed that the game was still in development and that it could even be released as early as 2021, effectively putting the project back on track. Since then, the Swedish publisher has once again pushed the potential release date back. Listed below is everything we know about Biomutant so far.

Biomutant Release Date
In accordance with GamesIndustry.biz, THQ Nordic’s fiscal year 2022, which begins in April 2021 and ends in March 2022, will see the release of Biomutant at some point during that year. An earlier THQ financial report stated that Biomutant would be released during the company’s fiscal year 2021, which ends on March 31, 2021, but since then, THQ Nordic has reached out to the publication and updated the release date to March 31, 2021.
Biomutant was first revealed in a magazine article in 2017, and the game’s developer, Experiment 101, confirmed the game at the 2017 Gamescom convention just a few days later. THQ Nordic had already been working on Biomutant with developer Experiment 101 before purchasing the Swedish company in November 2017. The acquisition solidified the partnership between the two companies. Lars Wingefors, the CEO of THQ Nordic, stated that the company hoped to turn Biomutant into one of its “major franchises.” at the time of the acquisition.
Biomutant was announced for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC in 2017. Experiment 101 and THQ Nordic have not stated whether or not this will be the case in the future, or whether Biomutant will be made available on next-generation consoles.

Is there a trailer for Biomutant?
In June 2020, Experiment 101 and THQ Nordic released a 10-minute gameplay trailer, which was the most recent look at the game’s current state of development. It introduced the game’s post-apocalyptic setting as well as its main character, a raccoon-like creature with extensive customization options. A number of different martial arts styles, as well as bladed weapons, firearms, and bows and arrows, will be available to choose from in the game, according to the trailer. Despite the fact that it didn’t provide many plot details, it appears that there will be plenty to explore, a plethora of creatures to battle, and a dizzying array of customization options.
Previously, at Gamescom 2017, Experiment 101 released a 75-second trailer as well as an 11-minute gameplay demo to demonstrate the game’s mechanics. A portion of Biomutant’s extensive character customization options, some early quests, and a portion of the game’s combat were demonstrated in this demo. It also provided glimpses of some of the game’s vehicles, including a hand-shaped mechanical crawler that can fire bullets from its fingertips, among other things.
