The game was originally announced in 2018 with a 2019 release date. This was later delayed to 2020, and then again to 2021. This delay was caused by difficult development due to the Covid-19 pandemic. No official statement has been given about the new 2022 release date.

The animated opening for Digimon Survive was revealed in 2019 showing the teenage characters arriving on a field trip where things aren’t entirely as they seem.

The game’s website offers some insight into what to expect.

“Celebrating the 20th Anniversary of the Digimon Anime, Digimon Survive presents a brand-new adventure set in a mysterious world with characters designed by Uichi Ukumo, and music by the much-acclaimed Tomoki Miyoshi.”

Digimon Survive sees a brand-new group of teenagers, led by Takuma Momozuka, get lost on a school camping trip, finding them transported to a strange new world of monsters and danger.”
