Is Dark And Darker Coming To Consoles?
While Dark and Darker is currently only available on PC and will only be available on PC immediately after release, many fans wonder if the game will come to consoles a while after its release. Dark and Darker will release as a PC-only game; however, that doesn't mean developers aren't open to branching out to consoles.
In fact, when asked if the game could come to other platforms like the Xbox Series X, PlayStation 5, or Nintendo Switch, developers Ironmace Games stated that bringing Dark and Darker to consoles is "one of our goals."
The team did not provide any further information about a potential console release date, or which consoles to which they plan to bring Dark and Darker. It's likely that developers are instead focusing on the Dark and Darker Steam playtest and making the PC version of the game the best it can be, considering Ironmace has reportedly mentioned that they hope to have the game ready for release in Q3 2023.
That's all we know right now about whether Dark and Darker is coming to consoles. While the upcoming dungeon crawler won't be available on other platforms upon its release, fans can remain hopeful that Ironmace Games hopes to bring the game to Xbox, PlayStation, and other consoles in the future.
