Naturally, players have to know if they’ll be able to experience “Rogue Legacy 2” on their console of choice, specifically the ever-popular PS4 and PS5. The original “Rogue Legacy” was available on PC, PS4, PS3, PS Vita, Xbox One, Switch, and iOS, so gamers definitely have their hopes up. So, onto the question that’s on everybody’s mind: is “Rogue Legacy 2” going to be available on any PlayStation consoles? Unfortunately for PlayStation players hoping to give “Rogue Legacy 2” a try, the game is not going to be available on any Sony console. In fact, it will be offered on a much more narrow range of platforms: Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC. However, all hope is not lost for PlayStation users.
The long-awaited sequel to “Rogue Legacy” will be released soon. According to over 10,000 positive Steam reviews and an 85/100 Metacritic score, the original 2013 roguelite from independent developer and publisher Cellar Door Games was a hit with fans and critics alike. The 2D platformer action adds a thrilling retro atmosphere, and every death creates a new child with a unique combination of skills and setbacks, providing gamers with a satisfying challenge. “Rogue Legacy 2” has been accessible for Early Access since 2020, which only adds to the excitement of the forthcoming April 28, 2022 Version 1.0 release. New side tales, reward systems, classes, weapons, accessibility features, and more will be included in the massive update.
“Rogue Legacy 2” lead designer Teddy Lee shared with Game Rant that as a small indie studio with just two programmers, making ports is time-consuming and challenging, and that includes the recent Xbox port. When asked about a possible PlayStation or Switch version, Lee simply stated, “We’ve only been thinking about that so far, so we’ll see … We don’t like to make any promises or say anything if nothing’s set in stone, right?” As time passes, it’s more than likely a PlayStation port of “Rogue Legacy 2” will become a reality – so long as the Version 1.0 release is a success.
According to the FAQ section of Cellar Door Games’ site, the developers honed in on the PC version of the game exclusively through Early Access, with plans to announce wider console availability once Early Access ends. Clearly, plans changed a bit since that FAQ entry due to the fact that “Rogue Legacy 2” has already been announced for Xbox prior to the release of Version 1.0. Looking back at the release of “Rogue Legacy” also gives PlayStation owners reason to be optimistic. While the PC version of the game released in 2013, PlayStation versions weren’t ported until 2014.
