If you've been waiting for Disco Elysium to hit consoles, then good news. In an interview with Escapist Magazine, the developers said they were working on ports to get them there next year.

The game, which follows an alcoholic cop in his journey to try and solve a murder while listening to the many voices in his head, has received some insanely critical praise and coverage from the press and gamers alike. While you solve the mystery, you'll have to use various roleplaying elements and dialogue choices. Your stats will determine just how you can explore the weird world and interact with the people and objects inside of it.

Lead designer Robert Kurvitz had the following to say about the plans to port it:

The immediate plan, and this is why I won’t go on a holiday anytime soon, is to get Disco Elysium to as many people as possible. We’re going to port it next year to PlayStation and Xbox. We need to be very hands-on with the design of that. We don’t want to hire a porting company. We think it really is going to lend itself very well to console play because you don’t need to go over minute tactics and use a mouse because it’s very narrative in its nature.

Additionally, there are also plans to bring Kurvitz's book, Sacred and Terrible Air, translated to English as well. The book, which came out in 2013 and Disco Elysium takes place in the same world of, features a group of students as they investigate a missing classmate 20 years after they vanished.

 
 

Disco Elysium will be coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One sometime in 2020. Until then, you can get it on PC right now.
