Console Release Date Announced for Banner Saga 2

Developers Stoic have confirmed that the latest entry in the studio’s critically-acclaimed Banner Saga series, The Banner Saga 2, will be available on consoles on July 26 for PS4 & Xbox One — the latter of which is made possible via ID@Xbox’s self-publishing program.

“We are happy that we were able to create a development schedule where the console version of Banner Saga 2 could come out shortly after the PC version,”¬†John Watson, Technical Director at Stoic, explained. “Although our team size dictated what we could do with the first release, we knew that a two year wait for the sequel was just not acceptable, so we worked extremely hard to ensure that console gamers could continue their journey in a timely fashion.”¬†Watson has stated the team hope to have a unitary release for both PC and consoles when Banner Saga 3 inevitably drops.
