Rogue Legacy 2‘s exit from early access has been a big success so far, but it’s not just a win for Cellar Door Games. As it so happens, Rogue Legacy 2 is an Xbox console exclusive, meaning the only platforms Xbox players can check it out on are Xbox One and Xbox Series X consoles. Because of this, Rogue Legacy 2‘s strong reception is definitely a win for Xbox as well.

With its current score, Rogue Legacy 2 stands as one of the highest-rated video game releases of 2022 so far, behind only FromSoftware’s smash hit Elden Ring and the acclaimed point-and-click adventure game Norco. With the game earning such high praise from critics, it’s understandable that fans on other platforms may be wondering if they’ll be able to play it on their console of choice. The original Rogue Legacy released for numerous platforms over the years, and so one would think that PlayStation and Switch ports for Rogue Legacy 2 could be a possibility down the road.

Game Rant spoke with lead designer Teddy Lee about the possibility of Rogue Legacy 2 PlayStation and Switch ports. Lee explained that Rogue Legacy 2 only has two programmers on the team, lacking the resources to have someone handling ports to other platforms. “Even doing the Xbox version was so difficult,” Lee said. This doesn’t mean that Rogue Legacy 2 won’t come to PlayStation or Switch at some point down the line, but fans shouldn’t expect for it to happen anytime soon.

For now, those that want to play Rogue Legacy 2 will need to do so through PC or Xbox consoles.

Rogue Legacy 2 is out now for PC, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X.
