Sergey Oganesyan, Communications Director, Frogwares;
“We have a release date trailer all locked in and scheduled to air on Thursday, 16th of September, but we wanted to tell players now that the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions of the game won’t be part of this first launch. We’d rather be open with you about it now than have it appear out of the blue, hidden at the end of an announcement or a trailer.
We understand some players will be upset about this news, but we made the decision with you first in mind. Rest assured, we are not canceling these versions. We only need more time and a little breathing room for our team to wrap these up properly. We are talking a few weeks at most, but this is still to be seen“
