The beloved RPG based on the space opera will reportedly launch on PC and as a temporary console exclusive for the PS5, before coming to other platforms eventually.

Despite this, there were no details on how long this temporary release video would last. Sony is no stranger to timed PlayStation exclusives, as seen by Arkane's Deathloop which will be a PS5 for one year, while Final Fantasy 7 Remake is looking to launch elsewhere soon.
