PlayStation 4 and XBox One players will be pleased to hear that console port team Shiny Shoe has been so efficient with it work that The Banner Saga 2 will be arriving nearly a month ahead of the projected July 26th date. XBox One players can expect to get hands on the game perhaps as early as Friday, July 1st with the PlayStation 4 version ready for live service on Tuesday, July 5th.
We originally planned to launch later in the month. However, because of the combined effort of our friends at Sony and the hard work by the team at Shiny Shoe, we are able to bring this to you much sooner. Stoic wanted people to kick start their summer off right and jumped at the chance to get the second game in PlayStation 4 owners’ hands – just three months after the launch on PC and Mac, which is so much quicker than the previous wait you guys had for Banner Saga 1!
In other interesting news, Stoic is already hard at work on The Banner Saga 3 and is planning a simultaneous multi-platform release when it is ready.
