Valheim developer, Iron Gate Studios, has announced that they currently have no plans to release the popular survival game on platforms outside of Xbox, specifically for PlayStation. In a recent episode of the Xbox Expansion Pass podcast, senior developer Jonathan Smårs revealed that at the moment, the developers are only focusing on the Xbox platform, but did not completely dismiss the possibility of releasing on other platforms in the future.
Valheim first appeared on Steam in Early Access and became a massive hit in February 2021, garnering over 5 million sales a month after its release, making it one of the top-selling games of the year on PC. The game was then announced for PC Game Pass in 2022 and was later released on Xbox.
Although the game is currently only available on Xbox platforms, fans of the game are still hopeful that it will eventually come to PlayStation and even Nintendo Switch.
For those who are unfamiliar with Valheim, there are numerous resources available, including 20 tips and tricks for beginners, the seven keys to understanding Valheim’s success as a survival game, and a mod that allows players to recreate Azeroth, the map from World of Warcraft, in Valheim.
In the meantime, players can continue to enjoy playing Valheim on Xbox consoles and on PC through Game Pass. Fans of the game will have to patiently wait and see if it will become available on PlayStation or other platforms in the future.
