Valheim Devs Have No Current Plans to Release on PlayStation

Valheim developer Iron Gate Studios says that there are no currently no plans to bring the survival game over to other platforms outside of Xbox, including PlayStation.

In an episode of the Xbox Expansion Pass podcast, senior developer Jonathan Smårs said, “Currently, we’re only looking at the Xbox, but you never know.” Valheim is coming to early access preview on Xbox, and while Smårs wasn’t part of the conversations to bring the game over to that platform, publisher Coffee Stain worked with Microsoft to do so.

I think it's great that it's on Xbox. I hope gamers there enjoy it, I know I have. I also think it would do really well on Playstation.

That 20k player count would quadruple if they changed their mind. Though seeing that their game isn't even in the top hundred for sales they might need that MS money.

I played on Steam and you could select "Alternate Glyphs" and it showed a PS5 controller and all the buttons changed to PS. That gives me hope.

It looks like a cool game. Grim Dawn is the one I want on console. I would day 1 that thing.

It’s what they say when it’s a paid timed exclusive but contract says they can’t say anything until it’s over .

Don't get your hopes up. The studio would more than likely be bought off by microsoft once the Activision deal goes through in late April to early June (as well known game-market analysis firms predict, once the EU and CMA give the yes, the FTC will go under pressure - having the weakest case aswell. And to avoid the down votes, as the analysts predict, the EU has already green lighted off the books - the CMA's case can be dismissed by creating a second UK company with an auditor and managing COD under that and the people in the FTC are running for office - so they would rather not have a war on their hands)

Then you’re missing out on a 32+ million user base.

Lightning7774d ago

32 million aren't gonna play this...

Jin_Sakai74d ago

Obviously all 32 million aren’t going to buy the game…🤦‍♂️

I mean, you have to give credit, even Microsoft uses that logic now


Edit: Just to note, the dev team working on this is pretty darn small. They're the type of studio that has to focus on specific platforms at a time.

Edit 2: Heck yeah, let's get Grim Dawn on consoles. Great game from Bruno and team. Not sure what it has to do with this game, though.

PS players are notorious for mainly playing just COD and that's not even debatable. Why do you think MS went after Activision.

TheColbertinator74d ago

Everybody plays COD. Top game on every platform it is on. Microsoft is smart for wanting all those sales for themselves.

Christopher74d ago

Every platform is notorious for playing CoD, PS just has the biggest portion of the fanbase.

Oh please, you 32 million users couldn't even support Square Enix. Doi need to remind you of Forspoken.

Shane Kim74d ago (Edited 74d ago )

Forspoken wasn't really a good game. We'll have to wait for final fantasy for better judgement.

jznrpg74d ago
