Read Only Memories: NEURODIVER releases on May 16

Read Only Memories: NEURODIVER is finally going to be released on May 16 this year.

Fans who have been keeping up with the game will probably remember that NEURODIVER has been set to release for quite a while now. In fact, the last we’d heard of the game, its last release date was said to be sometime in 2023. That… didn’t pan out.

However, if we look at the latest NEURODIVER release trailer below, it seems MidBoss is more than aware that the game has been pushed back a few times.

NEURODIVER is a follow-up to the critically lauded 2064: Read Only Memories, which was released in October 2015. The original game put players in the shoes of a down-on-their-luck journalist who wakes up to a weird little robot having broken into their apartment and asking them to help solve a mystery that will shake Neo-San Francisco to its core.

This time, however, players return to Neo-San Francisco as the psychic detective ES88. ES88 is hunting a rogue telepath called The Golden Butterfly through the city, but they aren’t alone in their hunt. They enlist the help of a neurodiver, a bioengineered creature that can use amplified mind-reading abilities, to help in their search for the fugitive esper.

Like the last game, NEURODIVER will feature a diverse cast that includes LGBTQ+ characters. Some will be returning from the original 2064: Read Only Memories, like gene-spliced lawyer Jess Meas, and notorious hacker TOMCAT. Additionally, the story was written by queer comic writer Sina Grace (DC’s Iceman, Image Comics The Walking DeadIDW Read Only Memories) and includes additional writing from Samantha Ortiz, who worked on Neon White and Comunicación.

Read Only Memories: NEURODIVER releases on May 16, 2024 for PC via Steam, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and Nintendo Switch. Physical editions made in partnership with Serenity Forge were also announced for PS5 and Nintendo Switch, with pre-orders for the Collector’s Editions and Standard Edition commencing today.
