The reception of Kingdom Come: Deliverance shocked the game’s developer Warhorse Games when it was completely funded after only 36 hours on Kickstarter. The realistic looking medieval RPG was announced originally for the next gen consoles on PC, but because of publishing requirements for the PS3 and Xbox 360 Warhorse wasn’t sure how feasible the game would be. But after discussions with Sony and Microsoft, Kingdom Come: Deliverance is officially heading to the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
To publish games on the old generation consoles developers needed to have an official publisher. Warhorse does not have a publisher, so they weren’t sure it they could deliver on the consoles or not. The company didn’t want to let their fans down so they turned to Sony and Microsoft for help. While not on the old consoles, Sony and Microsoft said they are very eager to help independent developers. This is why Kingdom Come: Deliverance is coming to both the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
Beta access to the game is only confirmed for PC so far; Kickstarter donators will be able to choose any platform for their copy of the game when it releases though. Warhorse has only confirmed digital available for the game on PS4 and XB1 but they are also exploring retail options. Kingdom Come: Deliverance has a current release window on sometime late 2015.
