Today, Steve Gaynor of the Fullbright Company announced that they were entering into a partnership with publisher Midnight City so that they could bring Gone Home to new platforms. More specifically, this means that the incredibly popular indie game from last year will come to consoles.
Currently you can download the game in PC/Mac/Linux through Steam and the website. The tentative release date is Fall 2014, but so far specific platforms have gone unspecified.
Gone Home was highly acclaimed when it came out last year. The story follows a young woman who returns home after a year abroad to find the house empty. Through investigation you discover what happened to the inhabitants of the home.
More specifics– exact platforms, exact release date– will be revealed in the coming weeks and months. In the meantime, we hope you’re as excited as we are to know that Gone Home is going to be coming to a whole new audience on new platforms, and that Midnight City is going to help us make every version of Gone Home the very best experience it can possibly be for the hardware we bring it to.
Gaynor says that they weren’t ready to bring Gone Home to consoles at the original launch because it would’ve required a further divvying of resources, as well as planning for a generation on the way out.
