Will You Ever Be Able to Play Sons of the Forest on a Console?

While Endnight Games have not provided any details on a console launch for Sons of the Forest, the first entry in the series might give us some clues. The Forest released for PC on April 30, 2018, which was followed approximately six months later by its release on PS4 on November 6, 2018. To this day, The Forest remains only available on PC and PS4. Extrapolating that timeline to the latest release in the series, a Sons of the Forest console launch could potentially occur in late August or early September of this year. However, it is important to take any conjecture surrounding the game’s console release with a grain of salt until Endnight Games provides any further information.
