Atomic Heart Release Date May Have Leaked a Day Early

trailer An Atomic Heart release date of February 2023 for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X | S seems to have leaked.

Developer Mundfish plans to officially reveal the release date trailer for its nightmarish Soviet Union first-person shooter, Atomic Heart, tomorrow. However, the Atomic Heart release date seems to have leaked a bit early, apparently set for February 21, 2023 for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X | S.

This date was reported first yesterday by WhatIfGaming, citing a reliable anonymous source. For strong additional evidence, Twitter user Idle Sloth noted that the YouTube source code for tomorrow’s trailer contains the same February release date. So, while Mundfish has yet to formally announce the launch date for Atomic Heart, rumors and leaks may have beaten the studio to it.

Atomic Heart was revealed in 2017 and has had gamers enamored since. This gruesome FPS plops players into an alternate-history version of the Soviet Union with enough sci-fi flavor to make it look like BioShock’s long-lost cousin. The game received a combat trailer this past August that showcased the type of damage you will be able to do. Its release date has been a long time coming, so it will be nice to finally get confirmation from Mundfish tomorrow. Stay tuned to find out if that Atomic Heart February release date is real tomorrow when the trailer finally premieres.
