The Banner Saga is missing its 2015 console release, but you won’t need to wait long into the new year to take on the viking quest. Xbox One and PlayStation 4 releases are due at the start of January.

Developer Stoic explains that the console ports were a bit more challenging than original anticipated. This led to a longer than expected development cycle.

“We have been working on porting Banner Saga to consoles for some time” said Stoic founder John Watson. “Porting the game certainly presented technical challenges  that we needed to overcome, and gave us an opportunity to redesign the experience for console controllers. We have managed to merge the story and gameplay from Banner Saga with a refined controller  interface to make it a very enjoyable console gaming experience.”

The current-gen console versions are due on January 12. For more, check out our review of the original PC version. A sequel is currently in the works for release in 2016.
