Though it was shown off at Gamescom 2015 with the hopes of an October 2015 release date, the Mojang-published side-scroller Cobalt has been rather quiet in the last few months. The silence was lifted today by Mojang’s Jens Bergensten, who announced the game’s release date on Xbox One, Xbox 360 and Steam as February 2, 2016.
COBALT is coming to Xbox One/360 & Steam on February 2, so this Friday at 15:00 CET I will be streaming some of the campaign on twitch =)
