ARC Raiders is an upcoming free-to-play shooter from Embark Studios. But when is the Arc Raiders release date? What do we know about the game itself? Hell, what is the game? We have all the details you need to know. Before we kick off, it’s worth noting that the game has been delayed – and there is no release date confirmed as yet. We do however, as we go into shortly, know it is due this year.

ARC Raiders Release Date speculation

Arc Raiders was originally set to release in 2022. The game was revealed during The Game Awards 2021, but since then we’ve not really seen anything from the game, however, it has since been delayed to 2023. This was confirmed by the developer in a message, which we have captured below, who said the game will be coming this year – although no definitive date has been announced.

If we were to predict a window, we would place a bet on Arc Raiders appearing somewhere in the Q4 period – although, as previously stated, this is just speculation.

What is ARC Raiders?

The official Steam page for the game states the following when explaining the game: “ARC Raiders is a cooperative third-person shooter where you and your squad of Raiders unite to resist the onslaught of ARC- a ruthless, mechanized threat descending from space. You play as one of the Raiders, a rogue group of resistance fighters. With the help of a patchwork early warning system, you fight to protect our home against enemies dropping from orbit. ARC is faceless and unfeeling, but no one could accuse ARC of being unresponsive. In fact, ARC responds to resistance with ever-increasing destruction.”

Other details are sparse on the game, but we do know the game will be powered by Unreal Engine 5 so will look incredibly ‘current gen’. We’ll be updating the page with more information as soon as it comes through.
