We are proud to finally share that Unknown World Entertainment’s Subnautica will release on PlayStation®4 and Xbox One on December 4, 2018 both physically and digitally. Our European players will be able to purchase physical disk copies of the game starting three days later, December 7.
Transparency with our players is incredibly important to the Unknown Worlds team and while they are very confident that they will be able to deliver the game by our intended date, there is always a chance that unforeseen problems may delay their plans. If anything changes regarding these dates, we will continue to update all of our devoted Explorers about our latest status.
Unknown World Entertainment is traditionally a PC game developer. This is UWE’s first console release, so wexcitement and nerves are at an all-time high. Many thanks to Gearbox Publishing and Panic Button for helping release Subnautica on the PlayStation 4 & Xbox One.
Thank you to all of you who pushed for Subnautica to release on consoles. Your tweets, emails, and other messages provided the encouragement & motivation needed to navigate the unfamiliar waters of console development.
Many of you purchased the Xbox Game Preview version of Subnautica, enduring awful bugs and painful frame rates. Your feedback, bug reports, and reviews have helped shape console release. Without your patient feedback, Subnautica may have never made it to consoles.
Thanks are also in order for many PC & Mac players – By playing and reporting issues with Experimental branch on Steam, you have helped stress test code destined for consoles.
Regardless of what platform you play on, please join in the excitement on console launch day, and spread the news of Xbox and PlayStation release far and wide. Hopefully as many people as possible get to experience the wonder and peril of Planet 4546B’s open ocean.
