Although Warhorse Studios had always planned for their realistic medieval RPG, Kingdom Come: Deliverance to be released on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, it was never actually official. Today they’ve announced that after negotiating with both Sony and Microsoft that their Kickstarter funded game will be heading to those companies’ respective consoles.
“Both companies are very eager to work with independent developers now and were really helpful in speeding up the whole process. We were provided with devkits and will get cracking on the console version right away,” said Warhorse on the game’s Kickstarter page. “It also appears that we will be able to publish the game on consoles at least digitally ourselves, without publishers. We shall see about the physical/retail publishing, we may be able to do it ourselves, or we may make a deal with another company to do it, this remains to be seen.”
Backers of the game will now have the option of getting either a digital or retail copy of the game for whichever one of the consoles that they choose. Alpha access will only be available for Windows. Beta access may become available for consoles but as of now it is only going to be for Windows, Mac and Linux.
This Kickstarter campaign was designed to show the game’s investor that it is worth it for him to continue funding it. The campaign has currently brought in $1.1 million dollars of the $410,000 goal. A new stretch goal is currently being planned.
The Kickstarter campaign for Kingdom Come: Deliverance will end this Thursday at 4PM eastern.
