The delay is for "fine tuning" of the game.

Outriders, the upcoming co-op shooter in development from People Can Fly, has been delayed once again. The studio took to Twitter today to announce that instead of coming out in February, the game will now be released on April 1. And no, there is no fooling on this date selection.

This marks the game's second delay. It was originally slated to be released during the 2020 holiday season. It was then pushed to a February 21, 2021 release date. Now we won't see the game until April.

People Can Fly says that they will spend this additional time "fine tuning the game and focusing on delivering a fantastic play experience at launch." Perhaps developers are looking at the situation with Cyberpunk 2077 and realizing that taking additional time ahead of launch would be better for everyone.

While the full game won't be ready in February, there will still be something coming for anxious fans. On February 25, you will get to experience the first few hours of the game. This will come via a free demo that will include all four character classes and include single player and multiplayer sections. All progress made during the demo will carry over to the full game once it goes live.

Outriders is a sci-fi shooter in a similar vein to something like Destiny 2. It allows for 1 to 3 players to group up to take on the PvE experience. It is a third-person action-RPG at its core.
