The developers from Facepunch Studios have taken to the official site to provide players with an update regarding the console edition of the survival game Rust. While the team has been planning to bring the game to PS4 and Xbox One in 2020, the year has brought very challenging times for many. The team apologizes for not being able to bring Rust to consoles as planned and hopes that with the dawn of 2021 the devs can restore players’ trust.
“We love making great games and bringing them to new audiences, but that sometimes means taking a bit longer to get it right than we originally planned and comes at the unfortunate cost of the disappointment and trust of those who were so keen to play it upon launch.”
“Why have we been so quiet for so long? The world of games dev is a fickle beast; you never have the full picture up front and the development process often becomes more of a journey of discovery when bringing a PC title to console. As much as engaging with players is extremely important, we believe it also has to be meaningful and as we’ve been working away behind the scenes, we haven’t felt ready to share anything with you yet. “
