Banner Saga 2 on console "alongside or soon after" PC release

Studio want sequel on console around the same time as PC launch.

In an interview that's going to be published here on Gamereactor in the coming days, Stoic's John Watson revealed plenty of interesting details regarding his studio's upcoming RPG sequel, The Banner Saga 2.

Notably Watson gave us an update regarding the upcoming console version of The Banner Saga, but he also told us a little bit about the progress of The Banner Saga 2, which is coming to PC, PS4 and Xbox One at some point in early 2016.

"We are almost 'content complete' meaning you can play through the entire game from front to back and none of the major plot points are missing," Watson explained when discussing the incoming sequel.

"In a few weeks we will all get together for a jam session to get all the music hooked up properly, in the right places, with the correct transitions, etc..."

The studio aren't only concentrating on TBS2, and the original is heading to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on January 26.

"Console builds of The Banner Saga have finally passed cert and are ready for release prior to Banner Saga 2's launch, which is a relief. We've started work on console ports for The Banner Saga 2 with the hope that we can launch them alongside, or soon after, the Steam launch."

"Everything's coming together quickly each day, but there are still a few solid months of work ahead of us."

Stay tuned for the full interview, which will be online very soon, and in the meantime you can check out our chat with John Watson from earlier this year.
