Armored Core 6 won’t be one of the games hit by delays this year, as it’s rated for a Korean release. This suggests that Armored Core is in fairly playable condition and gearing up for his 2023 release as promised last year.
We don’t have a specific release date or release window other than 2023 yet. However, the game already has him age-restricted in one region, so this is likely to change soon, and the dates may change. More will be revealed as Showcase season approaches.
The development was spotted by Gematsu and bodes well for FromSoftware fans looking to jump into another game after Elden Ring.
In South Korea, Armored Core is approved for players 12 and older. This is much lower than his Elden Ring, which was only approved for domestic mature audiences and his 16+ audiences in Europe.
Armored Core is much more tame than Elden Ring, so the age rating notes don’t reveal much detail about the game, other than the violence it contains. Suppose you find out someone says “fuck” at 16.
However, when it comes to Final Fantasy 16, the reveal of its own age rating has confirmed to fans that the game will not be delayed to 2024. It’s safe to assume that the same is true for Armored Core 6.
This could also mean that Armored Core 6 is coming this September, as previously rumored. This leaves some time later in the year for Elden Ring’s DLC, which could be a pretty busy time for FromSoft.
Of course, this is great news for fans of FromSoft’s work, or more specifically, those sticking with the Armored Core series. His last game, Armored Core 5, was released in 2012. The series then skipped an entire console generation, so news of a new game last year came as a very pleasant surprise.
It’s also promising that there’s one developer unaffected by recent delays, as several highly anticipated games have been postponed to next year. It was slapped with a 9-month delay and is now out in 2024. Full releases of Ark 2, The Wolf Among Us 2 and MultiVersus are also among other titles. And it goes without saying that a game meant to be with us earlier this year will only be pushed back to late 2023.
