Rust Console Release Delayed

Published: December 7, 2020 10:13 AM /



Double Eleven has announced that their Rust Console Edition port will not be coming in 2020 as originally planned, but (probably?) in 2021 instead. Here's a quote explaining why:

We love making great games and bringing them to new audiences, but that sometimes means taking a bit longer to get it right than we originally planned and comes at the unfortunate cost of the disappointment and trust of those who were so keen to play it upon launch. 

As a company in 2020, a year that has brought very challenging times for many, we’ve felt very fortunate to be able to keep doing what we love. We’ve always had some remote workers but moving the entire company home to keep everyone safe has presented challenges as we’ve found new ways to work with each other in the new normal that this year had in store for us. 

So basically it appears that they've hit some snags due to the current economic and world climate. Some companies adjusted fairly well to working remotely, and other companies such as Double Eleven have not, to the extent that they still don't have anything to share despite their original release date being in 2020.

If you really want to play Rust and can't wait for it to come to consoles, you can check it out on Steam for a cool $39.99. If you are bound and determined to wait Double Eleven out, you can sign up for their newsletter in order to be the first to receive information about Rust Console Edition
