Frontier have announced that Elite Dangerous will be coming to the Xbox One.
It has been available for PC owners since December, but fans will never the less be pleased that it is finally making it’s way to the Xbox One. As of yet, there has been no word whether Frontier will also bring it to the PlayStation 4.
Speaking via the official Frontier forums, Frontier Boss, David Braben stated:
When asked, I’ve said we’d be mad not to consider bringing Elite: Dangerous to console. Well, that madness is about to end. Today we’re announcing that we will be bringing the full Elite: Dangerous to Xbox One this year. Xbox players have supported Frontier well over the years, so Xbox One is a natural fit for Elite: Dangerous’ console debut.
Elite: Dangerous on Xbox One will be the complete and authentic Elite: Dangerous experience. It will not be ‘dumbed down’. We’ll be working with an all-new audience, but that doesn’t mean a change in direction for the game, and nor does it mean slowing development on the PC version. More players across more formats means we can devote more resources to development. The more players we have, the better the game will become. Elite: Dangerous is a living game and it will keep growing on all our formats so long as people are excited to play it.
