Banner Saga 2 will release on PS4 and Xbox One on July 26, developer Stoic and publisher Versus Evil have announced.
The Viking role-playing strategy sequel launched on PC and Mac back on April 19, only three months prior to the console editions.
"We are happy that we were able to create a development schedule where the console version of Banner Saga 2 could come out shortly after the PC version," said John Watson, Technical Director at Stoic. "Although our team size dictated what we could do with the first release, we knew that a two year wait for the sequel was just not acceptable, so we worked extremely hard to ensure that console gamers could continue their journey in a timely fashion. Our goal for Banner Saga 3 is to simultaneously ship on all platforms!"
All choices made in the first game can be carried forward into the sequel, though new players can begin with the sequel without penalty.
