The Banner Saga 2, the sequel to the award winning indie hit The Banner Saga, has been confirmed for a console release a little later this year. The epic Viking role-playing strategy game will be available for PS4 and Xbox One before the end of the summer, releasing on July 26th.
John Watson, Technical Director at developing studio Stoic, spoke with pride about the confirmation of their sequel’s console releases during the recent announcement:
We are happy that we were able to create a development schedule where the console version of The Banner Saga 2 could come out shortly after the PC version.
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. Our goal for Banner Saga 3 is to simultaneously ship on all platforms!
The PC version The Banner Saga 2 received positive reviews when it released earlier this year, and you can check out our verdict of the game right here if you’re interested.
