Forspoken follows the journey of Frey, a young New Yorker transported to the beautiful and cruel land of Athia. In search of a way home, Frey must use her newfound magical abilities to traverse sprawling landscapes and battle monstrous creatures.
It is launching on PC and PlayStation 5, now instead of October coming in January. However, will we see a Forspoken Xbox release anything soon?
Forspoken On Xbox. What This Delay Means
It is seemingly a PlayStation 5 timed exclusive. So this delay means Xbox owners have a while longer to wait. So why is this the case? Well, the answers come from a recent PlayStation 5 advertisement for the game. This lists the game as a PlayStation 5 console launch exclusive for a period of two years.
Yes, that does read two years. So for Xbox fans, the earliest you could experience Frey’s journey is January 2025 barring another delay. Consequently, that doesn’t guarantee a January 2025 launch, it just means the PlayStation exclusivity has expired and is free to launch on Xbox. If you want to refresh your memory on why it was delayed, the original announcement was on Twitter
As a result of ongoing discussions with key partners, we have made the strategic decision to move the launch date of Forspoken to January 24, 2023. All game elements are now complete, and development is in its final polishing phase,
