Very slow start
Since they confirmed that Rust will be coming to consoles in 2020, many users throughout December wondered where the hell was the game they’ve been waiting for over a year. This prompted Double Eleven to post a statement of apology for not meeting deadlines, but they basically confirmed what many were already thinking: 2020 was a very difficult year to work on.
They didn’t have much to tell about the game, so they called us until around 2021 to see what’s new and that’s where we are. With the resurgence of Rust thanks to trendy users YouTube and to the EGOLAND server, the game has reached sky-high heights. high marks for Twitch , which is also the most bought pairs game in recent weeks. But what about console version ?
He already has an age rating
Fortunately, things seem to be moving forward and at least the most boring procedures seem to be going their course. This is something we can intuitively know that Rust has reached the console version’s age rating on the ESRB website, which indicates that it will be available for PS4 and Xbox One, not PS5 and Xbox Series X and Series S. (all points from the fact that we will have to abandon backward compatibility).
Rated Mature The game is intended for adult users due to the violence that can be seen in the game, although if there is anything that draws particular attention during the game it is the feeling of hatred that can be achieved through confrontation between the players. Having already had the age mark on the box with the game, does this mean that its launch is imminent? Probably no.
What about PS5 and Xbox Series X?
Given the difficulties Double Eleven faced in developing the version for the previous generation, we are very concerned that the improved version, optimized for new consoles, may take too long. At the moment the information is published in ESRB file leaves no room for doubt, so for now the only playable versions will be PS4 and Xbox One.
Do we have a release date?
It’s one thing to have an age stamp, and another to have a release date for the game. For that we will have to wait for Doube Eleven to shed some light on this, but given that their last statement was released on December 7th, they probably still have nothing new to say about it at this point.
