Is The Forest Coming to Xbox One?

Will you be seeing cannibals running about on your screen if you play Xbox some time soon?

The Forest is a creepy but exhilarating game to play.

I've got pretty adjusted to seeing naked cannibals running about by now.

Seeing a mutant baby or 'Armsy' is a whole other interaction.

Currently, the game is available on PC and PS4 but could we see it come to the Xbox in the future?

Here's what a dev had to say.

Is The Forest Coming to Xbox One?

Sony is known for giving indie games a chance, hence why many of them become PS4 exclusives.

One of the games to follow this trend is The Forest.

Originally launching on PC, the only other platform it's available on is the PS4.

GamingBolt asked Anna Terekhova of Endnight, the developers of The Forest, why the game isn't available on platforms like the Switch or Xbox.

Here's what she had to say:

“Sony had first contacted us back when the initial trailer for the game was released,” she said. “We were able to build up a really good relationship with them, and knowing that as a small team we would only be able to focus on one console at a time being exclusive for a short period of time made sense.”

They also asked her about bringing the game to Xbox One in the future, “We’d love to bring the game to Xbox in the future" she said.

This could suggest that it's only a timed PS4 exclusive and could eventually come to Xbox.

The developers could also be waiting until next-gen consoles launch to release the game on Xbox, whos knows!

As of now, there hasn't been much talk of a port for The Forest recently, but if we hear anything else, we'll let you know!
