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.
