The Witness For Xbox One Appears On ESRB Listing

The Witness is coming to the PS4 and PC on January 26, but an ESRB rating has popped up also mentioning the Xbox One.

The listing, which lists the PC, PS4, and Xbox One (but not the iOS version) does not give a specific date for any of the releases.

The game is a home console limited-time exclusive on the PS4 but no timeframe has been given for an eventual Xbox One release. The game's official website says that the title will come to other platforms "a bit later."

We've contacted a representative for developer Thekla about the listing, and will update this story if we get any details.

For a look at the game's visuals, check out this trailer.

Our Take
Jonathan Blow seems to be a conscientious developer, so when he and company Thekla say the game will be out later rather than sooner, I believe it will be to make sure the port is handled correctly and not just because of the exclusivity period.
