Disco Elysium Heads to PS4 and Xbox One in 2020

ZA/UM have confirmed open world RPG Disco Elysium is getting PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions.

Speaking to The Escapist, ZA/UM lead designer Robert Kurvitz revealed that they were working to port the game to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One themselves, rather than hire another company.

“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.”

Kurvitz also revealed he is translating the game into Chinese and several European languages. The game’s source material, Kurvitz’ novel Sacred and Terrible Air, is also being translated into English.

Disco Elysium is currently available for Windows PC (via GOG and Steam), and will launch 2020 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
