Crema Games launched the Pokemon-like MMORPG Temtem earlier this year for PC, allowing players on that platform an opportunity to get in on some action they would usually have to flock to another piece of technology to acquire. That said, console ports for PS4, Switch, and Xbox One were all announced, but it would appear two of them are no longer happening.
Following the recent State of Play, which revealed Temtem is coming to the next generation of PlayStation hardware, the devs at Crema Games took to their Kickstarter page to provide an update for fans. This is where they announced that Temtem is coming to PlayStation 5, Nintendo Switch, and Xbox Series X, but they also noted that support for the current generation of Sony and Microsoft’s consoles is ending and the game will not be released on them.

This one is a tough one, but still super important.

“This hasn’t been an easy decision, we understand many of our backers supported us with the intent of playing on their current systems and we always try to put our backers first,” reads the update from the developers. “As the next-gen approaches and as Temtem keeps growing we made the decision to fully focus our efforts on bringing the best possible game experience to players on the newest hardware.”
It is unfortunate that Temtem won’t be coming to all of the platforms it was originally being developed for, but the devs at Crema Games have a plan. Backers who were looking forward to the PS4 and Xbox One versions of the game will have the option to upgrade to their respective next-gen console. In addition to this, refunds will be offered for those who choose that route, but more information on that process will be revealed at a later date.
As stated above, while Temtem is no longer planned to launch on PS4 and Xbox One, the Nintendo Switch version is still on track for a 2021 release, which is when the game will also be coming to PS5 and Xbox Series X. As for right now, however, the creature-catching MMORPG is currently available on PC via Steam Early Access and Humble Bundle. For more on the adventure, check out our game hub!
