Divinity: Original Sin 2 is coming to Xbox One and PS4. The console version of the critically acclaimed RPG will be published by Bandai Namco and is scheduled for an August 2018 release.
"It was very important to us to have Divinity: Original Sin 2 distributed by a team that understands how to bring RPGs to a broad audience," said Larian Studios CEO Swen Vincke. "With Dark Souls and The Witcher, Bandai Namco demonstrated they know how to do exactly that and so I'm very happy we’ll have their support."
Like the original PC release, the console counterpart will feature drop-in/drop-out online campaign co-op, split-screen co-op modes, and PVP arena. Divinity: Original Sin 2 will be available physically and digitally on the PS4, while Xbox One will be a digital release only. Additional content updates and extra features will be announced in the months leading up to release.
Divinity: Original Sin 2 was released in September last year and was considered one of the best RPGs of 2017, with some hailing it as the best RPG of all time. The first game, Divinity: Original Sin, received similar praise and saw a similar release with PS4 and Xbox One versions arriving a year after the PC.
Both installments in the series launched successful Kickstarter campaigns. Divinity: Original Sin had a goal of $400,000 and cleared that goal with $944,282, thanks to nearly 20,000 backers. For Divinity: Original Sin 2, Larian Studios set a goal of $500,000 in funding, and drew in $2,032,434, due in part to doubling the number of backers from the previous crowdfunding campaign. .
