Retro 2D action RPG CrossCode was supposed to be making its way to consoles before the end of this year. Unfortunately, it seems that the CrossCode console versions have been delayed until 2020 — but it's not all bad news!
Let's start with what the devs are working on right now. Post-game DLC is in the works which will include the following items of note:
- Extended Rhombus Square
- more Quests
- a "proper" Final Dungeon
The post-game DLC will also some of the questions you may have been wondering about if you've finished the story. The developers also took the time to share a single screenshot without any context whatsoever, so make of it what you will:
As the developers are focusing on the post-launch DLC, they're also somewhat lacking in content for a regular update for the game. However, players can expect a technical update for the game before the ned of the year which should improve the software and engine used to run the game. Hopefully, this will fix some of the crash issues on Linux and memory leaks on Windows.
The developers also shared a trailer, so go ahead and check it out if you've been wondering what the game is all about.
CrossCode Console Versions Coming Next Year
The same news post which details the post-game DLC also has some information about the CrossCode console delay. In short, it's got a lot to do with the fact that the game was largely put together with HTML 5 and Java Script.
At the moment, an Xbox One version of the game being tested. Once that's done, we should see the game making its way to the Nintendo Switch after that.
You'll be able to enjoy the CrossCode console version sometime in 2020. In the meantime, you can pick it up for PC on Steam.
