The long-awaited console edition of Facepunch Studio’s Rust has been rated by the ESRB for Xbox One and PS4. The ESRB rating mentions that the game will be coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, with no mention of the next-gen consoles, though the game will likely be playable on the PS5 and Series X/S via backwards compatibility. With ratings announcements usually coming shortly before release, it seems likely we’ll get an official release announcement in the near future. The announcement that Rust would be coming to consoles in November of 2019 came during the XO19 conference, with a planned release date of 2020. The popular survival game slipped outside of that window, with port studio Double Eleven shifting estimations towards 2021 in a December 2020 update. [ignvideo url=”https://www.ign.com/videos/2019/11/15/rust-console-announcement-trailer”] “We’re sorry that we haven’t been able to bring you Rust on console in 2020 as planned,” the blog post reads. We know from all of the messages that you’re excited to play it and we hope that with the dawn of 2021 we can restore your trust as we edge closer to being able to share something with you.” Rust originally launched all the way back in 2013, at the start of the survival game boom. It has recently seen a massive resurgence on Twitch, with top streamers like Hasan Piker and Limmy playing the game live. [poilib element=”accentDivider”] Jordan Oloman is a freelance writer for IGN.
