Armored Core VI will arrive for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S. Unfortunately for Nintendo gamers, Fires of Rubicon is not slated for launch on the Switch, which is ultimately not surprising given the fact that FromSoftware has continually eschewed Nintendo’s latest console in many of its releases.

According to the game’s official description on Steam, Armored Core VI is, “A new action game based on the concept of the ARMORED CORE series that uses the knowledge gained from FromSoftware’s recent action game development.”
