Black Myth Wukong was announced yesterday and it’s a Chinese Soulsike project which has wowed games across the globe. It was announced with some truly stunning gameplay footage that plenty of gamers have been watching over and over again, and this has resulted in people wanting to know its release date as well as the platforms it will come out on. Here you’ll discover everything there is to know about whether it will release on PS4, Xbox One, and Steam.
For those who don’t know, Black Myth Wukong is developed by former Tencent employees who now work at Chinese indie studio, Game Science. It’s a studio comprising of very few people, which makes its announcement and accompanying gameplay footage all the more remarkable. It’s said to be based on the Journey to the West mythology, and lots of gamers are more than impressed.
And these same gamers are eager to know its release date as well as if there’s any hope of it landing on PS4 and Xbox One in addition to Steam.
What is the release date for Black Myth Wukong?
There is no release date for Black Myth Wukong.
This is because the team is very small and they only want to release a product they are satisfied with, but the Black Myth Wukong FAQ at least jests that its release date isn’t “500 years” off.
Although it’s said to have been in development for two years, there’s no estimation for when it’ll eventually come out.
You can forget about this year and most likely 2021 as well, but – judging by the gameplay footage – the long wait will be worthwhile.
Will Black Myth Wukong be on PS4 and Xbox One?
We don’t officially know if Black Myth Wukong will be on PS4 and Xbox One as Game Science haven’t announced its platforms.
It’s possible that it could be released on PS4 and Xbox One due to using Unreal Engine 4, but Black Myth Wukong will probably only be on PS5 and Xbox Series X due to its release date presumably being a couple of years away.
As for what Game Science have officially said, their FAQ page says that it will release on “mainstream consoles and PC”.
You’d presume that the PS5 and Xbox Series X will be the “mainstream” when the game eventually releases, meanwhile PC points to Steam and the Epic Games store.
