Witchfire is an upcoming shooter from the development team behind The Vanishing of Ethan Carter which is set to take players on a dark fantasy adventure as they are placed at the heart of a war against witches and their army of phantoms. The game features some serious talent with creative leads from Bulletstorm and Painkiller heavily involved in development.
If you're looking for a frantic and fast-paced shooter to dive into on PlayStation 5 then you may be wondering when Witchfire is coming to the console. Unfortunately, there may be a bit of a wait. Here's everything we know about Witchfire's release date on PlayStation 5.
Will Witchfire be released on PS5?
Currently, there's no set release date for Witchfire on PlayStation 5, or any console for that matter. The game was originally supposed to enter an early access period last year but the development team The Astronauts decided to postpone early access to 'early 2023' when it revealed that an open world would be incorporated into Witchfire. The Astronauts has yet to confirm a concrete release date and the game is simply listed as ‘coming soon’ on its official page.

After five long years players are keen to dive into this gothic shooter, but if you’re hoping to experience the game on PlayStation 5 then there may be a bit more of a wait ahead. Players will be able to play Witchfire during its early access period via Epic Games Store, which will retain the rights to host the game for at least one year.
Once that period has passed, Witchfire will likely be widely available via Steam and on PlayStation 5. Considering the agreement in place between The Astronauts and Epic Games Store, PS5 owners may not be able to play Witchfire until 2024 at the earliest.
