Valheim Devs has no current plans to release it on PlayStation

Valheim developer Iron Gate Studios says there are currently no plans to bring the survival game to platforms other than Xbox, including PlayStation.

in a loop of Xbox Expansion Pass Podcast“Right now we’re just looking at Xbox, but you never know,” said senior developer Jonathan Summers. Valheim is coming to early access preview on Xbox, and while Smårs wasn’t part of the talks to bring the game to that platform, publisher Coffee Stain worked with Microsoft to do so.

Valheim was dormant in February 2021 when it entered Steam Early Access, until it became one of the best-selling games of the year on the PC storefront and sold over 5 million copies after one month of release.

It was then announced for PC Game Pass in 2022, and then more recently for Xbox One and Xbox Series X | S, as well as Xbox Game Pass. While other console versions of Valheim are not currently in consideration, this does not necessarily rule out the possibility of it coming to platforms such as the PlayStation or even the Nintendo Switch.

In IGN’s Valheim review, we said, “Valheim is truly the epitome of the survival craft genre, with excellent art and music highlighting a world that generates endless thrilling stories from only simple ingredients.”
