Will Slime Rancher 2 be available on PS4 and PS5? Is there a date for Slime Rancher 2 to come out on PS5? The award-winning slimy SF life-sim adventure just got a sequel on Steam, Epic, and Xbox Game Pass.
Even though the game is still in early access, the “Overwhelmingly Positive” score on Steam shows that it is already a big hit. But fans of the first game who played it on PlayStation 4 want to know if the second game will also be on PlayStation.
Here’s what we know about the PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4 Slime Rancher 2 release date.
Slime Rancher 2 PS5 & PS4 Release Date and Time
As we’ve already said, you can now get early access to Slime Rancher 2 through Steam, Epic Games Store, and Xbox Game Pass. So, when it comes to consoles, you can only buy the game on an Xbox Series X/S right now.
You could also get Xbox Game Pass and play it that way. The game is so new that you can’t even get it on Xbox One.
This makes it a “true current-gen” game. But the original Slime Rancher game has been released on all platforms: PC (Windows, macOS, and Linux), Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and the Nintendo Switch.
So, why isn’t Slime Rancher 2 available on any other platforms? And will PlayStation get it? First of all, the game hasn’t been released yet. We’ve already said that early access is the “only” way to play the game.
Developers (Monomi Park) have said that they plan to keep it in early access for about 18 months. It won’t be fully out until then. “No other platforms have been announced at this time,” the developers say when asked about other platforms. We thought that the game would be coming to other platforms because the word “announced” was used. When though?
Well, the first Slime Rancher game came out only on PC and Xbox One at first ( August 1st, 2017).
On August 21, 2018, almost 13 months after that, a PlayStation 4 version came out. So, we don’t think that Slime Rancher 2 for PlayStation 5 will come out before September 2023.
And it looks like Monomi Park has no plans to bring the PS4 version to a console from the last generation. So, while we can’t say for sure, we don’t think Xbox One and PlayStation 4 will ever get Slime Rancher 2.
