Tequila Works’ RiME is expanding beyond its previous PlayStation 4 exclusivity after the deal between Sony and Tequila Works ended. Now, the game is releasing for PC, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
It has now been confirmed that the game will also be getting a physical release for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. A physical Nintendo Switch release is also being considered.
Speaking with MCVUK, Raúl Rubio, CEO and creative director at Tequila Works discussed the transition from being a single platform exclusive to releasing on many different platforms.
With RiME’s release now only a few months away the team is still working hard on adding the final touches to the game, but when I look back to when this journey began I feel we have remained true to our initial vision for the project and the original concept of living an adventure through the eyes of an eight year old child. It is true that bringing RiME to other platforms has meant additional workload for the team, but being able to share our vision with a wider audience makes that extra effort worth it. The team at Tequila Works is grateful to the belief Grey Box and Six Foot has shown in both RiME and the studio which has meant the game will now come to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC in May.
RiME is due to release in May 2017 (Amazon is listing the 31st May) for PC, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
