Is Escape From Tarkov coming to Xbox Series X and PS5? That might be the question on your lips right now and for good reason too: Battlestate Games’ hardcore looter shooter is picking up steam online, inspiring developers around the world to make similar inspired games.
While Battlestate Games has been hard at work adding new content to the game in recent years, it’s worth noting that Escape From Tarkov is still very much in beta – a state it’s been in since 2017. While the game has certainly grown in size and popularity since that point, we’re still a way off from console at the moment.
With that being said, an Escape From Tarkov console port isn’t off the table. Battlestate has confirmed it is interested in bringing this harcore looter shooter to Xbox and PlayStation consoles in the future, but when that’ll actually happen remains to be seen. Here’s everything we know about the Escape From Tarkov Xbox and PS5 versions of the game.
Is Escape From Tarkov coming to console?
Battlestate Games has confirmed that an Escape From Tarkov console port is planned. Lead developer Nikita Bunyanov said Battlestate Games was talking to publishers about ports in June 2020, and in December 2021, he reiterated his team’s intent to bring Tarkov to console in BSG’s 2021 end of year podcast on Twitch.
However, details on console beyond these two instances are light. Whether the game is still coming to console remains to be seen.
Escape From Tarkov Xbox Series X|S and PS5 release date
Is there an Escape From Tarkov Xbox Series X|S and PS5 release date? Well, not yet.
As mentioned above, it’s not clear whether Battlestate Games is working on a port right now, even if it is planned. With that in mind and the fact that the PC version of the game is still quite a way away from being finished, don’t expect the Escape From Tarkov console port any time soon.
