The first game was released back in 2014 by Stoic on PC, taking two years to make the transition to Xbox One and PS4. Happily, we won’t have to wait so long for the sequel.

It has just been announced that The Banner Saga 2 will arrive on consoles on the 26th of July, 2016. Stoic has been focussed on releasing this version of the game with less of a delay and the work has paid off.

“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!” he added.

And if you can’t wait til July, you can always pick up this tactical gem on PC!
