Rust Release date postponed from 2020 for PS4 players

Double Eleven has confirmed Rust isn’t coming to PlayStation 4 this year. I guess that shouldn’t come as a big surprise considering we only have 24 days left anyway.

The title originally launched on Steam in 2013, and developer Facepunch Studios has been teasing a console port since 2014. In a reveal at Xbox’s XO19 event, the game was revealed for a 2o20 release. However, that is no longer the case. After months of silence, publisher Double Eleven has confirmed that the game is still coming to console. Unfortunately it will certainly not come out this year as it “takes a little longer to get it right”. The publisher said:

Why have we been so quiet for so long? The games developer world is a fickle beast; you never have the full picture beforehand and the development process often becomes more of a voyage of discovery when you bring a pc title to the console. While contact with players is extremely important, we think it should also be meaningful and while we were working behind the scenes we didn’t feel ready to share anything with you.

As a company in 2020, a year that has brought very challenging times for many, we have been fortunate to be able to continue doing what we love. We’ve always had some outside workers, but moving the entire business home to keep everyone safe has brought challenges as we’ve found new ways to work together in the new standard that will be in store for us this year. had.

Rust is a survival game that traps players on an island where resources are limited. There is the cold, hunger and thirst to overcome. The problem is, the island itself isn’t the only danger. In the game’s multiplayer mode, players can compete against each other, with the loser becoming food for the victor. Alternatively, players can form an awkward alliance and form a structured township. More information about the game will hopefully be released next year as the team gets closer to sharing news with players.
