New, 17 comments

The PC title is finally heading to PS4 and Xbox One

Gone Home, Fullbright's critically acclaimed debut title, will launch for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on Jan. 12, 2016, the developer announced today.

In the video above, developer Steve Gaynor talks briefly about the console editions, which have been "reengineered specifically for Xbox and PlayStation" and upgraded from Unity 4 to Unity 5. The console editions also include more than 90 minutes of behind-the-scenes developer commentary.

Despite being announced in 2014, the console versions of Gone Home have had a few stumbles along the way. Midnight City, Majesco's indie publishing label, was partnered with Fullbright to release the game. In March of this year, however, Gaynor revealed that the publishing deal with the financially troubled company was no more and the ports were "not actively in development." According to today's news, however, Fullbright is still partnered with Midnight City, and by extension Majesco, to release the game.
