This year has often felt like a survival game in itself, but if you were hoping to play Rust on your console this Christmas then there’s bad news, as the console port will no longer release this year.
Rust’s planned launch on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One for sometime in 2020 was initially annnounced back in November 2019. The developer responsible for the port admitted it had kept quiet this year simply because there had been no meaningful updates to share with the community – up until now.
“It’s been a while since we shared anything in the public domain and as the end of 2020 is nigh, we want to confirm that Rust is still coming to console, just a little later than planned,” Double Eleven said in a blog post. “We’re sorry that we haven’t been able to bring you Rust on console in 2020 as planned. We know from all of the messages that you’re excited to play it and we hope that with the dawn of 2021 we can restore your trust as we edge closer to being able to share something with you.”
