UPDATE 20/02/2014: Medieval RPG Kingdom Come: Deliverance has ended its Kickstarter campaign with a healthy £1,106,016.That's enough to secure a dog companion in the game. Rejoice!ORIGINAL STORY 18/02/2014: No-fantasy RPG Kingdom Come: Deliverance will definitely be a PS4 and Xbox One game as well as PC (Windows, Linux) and Mac, developer Warhorse confirmed.Until now a console release was an aspiration, for political reasons rather than technical."While we never doubted our technical ability to do it, we were not sure about the actual publishing and distribution. In the last console generation, it just wasn't possible to have a game on console without an official publisher," wrote Warhorse on Kickstarter."In this generation it's going to be different though. We had lot of discussion with both Microsoft and Sony in the past weeks and we are happy to announce that the game concept of Kingdom Come: Deliverance was approved by both Sony and Microsoft for the next-gen platforms (PS4 and Xbox One)."Both companies are very eager to work with independent developers now"
"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 dev kits and will get cracking on the console version right away."In a Reddit Ask Me Anything, held before the update was posted to Kickstarter, Warhorse executive producer Martin Klima announced that, "We can confirm that the game will be - at least digitally - available on both PS4 and Xbox One (besides Windows, Linux, Mac)."The studio may be able to self-publish a boxed version of the game, it elaborated on Kickstarter, "or we may need to make a deal with another company to do it".Back on Reddit, Klima added: "We are aiming for simultaneous release across all platforms. We will know for sure when we get toward the end of the development. Even if the console version is delayed, it will be months, not years."Early access alpha and beta releases are planned on PC (and later Mac), but they're still not confirmed for console."The alpha version access is confirmed for Windows version only," the studio stated. "We are working with other platform holders to see if it could be made available there, but we cannot promise anything yet."The beta access will be available on Windows, Linux and Mac at least; it may also be available on consoles but we cannot confirm it yet."
