Whispers abound in the gaming community about Ready or Not, a standout in the tactical FPS genre. Since its 2021 debut, it’s been a PC-only experience, making waves not just as the spiritual successor to the classic SWAT games but standing tall with its distinct gameplay mechanics. But here’s the juicy bit: There’s buzz building about potential Ready or Not PS5 and PS4 versions.
As we sit in August 2023, Ready or Not has yet to release on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, or the Nintendo Switch. So far, there has been no official statement from Void Interactive regarding their plans to expand to consoles. But don’t forget this — in the gaming community, where there’s smoke, there’s often fire, and these rumours are causing a stir.
What Is the Ready or Not PS5 Release Date?
Currently, there’s no official word on when the Ready or Not PS5 version will hit the shelves. Void Interactive remains tight-lipped, but the noise from console fans is too loud to ignore. A quick peek at Reddit and Steam community chats suggests we might see the game make its console debut in 2024.
Whispers also hint at a PS4 version dropping in the latter half of 2024 alongside its PS5 counterpart. If that pans out, fans will finally get a taste of Ready or Not’s stellar gameplay on their consoles.
As of now, the game lacks cross-platform and cross-play capabilities. We’re keenly hoping these features roll out soon. Fingers crossed.
What Is the Ready or Not Xbox Series X|S Release Date?
There’s radio silence from Void Interactive regarding versions for Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One. Much like the situation with the Ready or Not PS5 version, the studio keeps its cards close to its chest. Still, we’re hopeful that in the months to come, they’ll break the news about the game’s console options.
Given that it’s already gracing PCs, there’s a good shout for an Xbox Series X|S release in 2024. If that pans out, the conversation might soon pivot to cross-progression capabilities. How brilliant would diving into such an immersive shooter alongside your console buddies be? We’re certainly rooting for it!
