XDefiant To Delay PS4 and Xbox One Launch Based on Open Session Feedback

Ubisoft’s XDefiant has gained momentum following its rocky start post-initial reveal. The company has been diligently working on this multiplayer shooter, with the recent Open Session as a pivotal point for making changes and improvements before the full launch. However, one crucial update has raised a few eyebrows.

In a recent announcement, Ubisoft shared that XDefiant won’t be available on the last-gen PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles at launch. This decision, as per the game’s official Twitter page, is attributed to the feedback received from the Open Session.

The tweet states, “Plan is still to launch later this summer. Launch will be on PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X|S. We’re working on last-gen platforms for later. We’ll provide more updates as they’re available.”

This may be disappointing for fans, but it’s worth noting that Ubisoft remains committed to releasing XDefiant on PS4 and Xbox One at a later, yet unspecified, date. The developers have not entirely abandoned the last-gen consoles, which provides some relief for those still playing on these platforms.

This update marks a trend in the gaming industry, with companies focusing more on next-gen consoles and PC gaming. High-performance and graphics requirements of contemporary games are pushing developers to prioritize these platforms. However, with millions of gamers worldwide still relying on last-gen consoles, it’s a balancing act for these companies to satisfy their entire user base.

That is to discover secrets within the gaming industry, create guides for all the games I play, and provide you with some important news. Oh, yeah, I post tons of patch notes too. Currently stuck in WoW with high M+ keys, Tarkov, a bit of Gray Zone Warfare, Dota 2, and CS2. P.S. Last time I counted how many hours I've spent in video games turned out to be 13+ years. And that was a long time ago too. Almost 24/7 in front of PC. If you need anything, feel free to contact me on X!
