Is Valheim coming to next gen consoles? Valheim is the Viking survival game that's been a breakout hit for developer Iron Gate Studio, so many players want to get in on the action. The game is out now for Steam Early Access, and has yet to be announced for console let alone next gen.

Is Valheim Coming to Next Gen Consoles?

According to developer Iron Gate Studio, there are no plans for Valheim on consoles at this time. It will release for Windows and Linux on Steam, but Iron Gate Studio said there may be a Mac version if there is demand. Likewise, they said to not rule out console versions in the future. For now, the game is only on Windows.

The game is still in early access, so it would be unlikely for such an early build of the game to come to consoles anyway. We can expect more about a console release when Valheim finishes development and releases in earnest.

Hopefully by then, we could actually get our hands on a next gen console and see plans to bring Valheim to as many players as possible.

The game does have full Xbox controller support, so you could at least hook up a controller and pretend.
