It's officially - Warhammer Vermintide 2 will be making its way over onto Xbox One and PlayStation 4 systems next year, which confirms long-standing rumors that have been circulating for quite awhile now:
“Although speculations have been correct all along, today we are happy to start talking more console specifics as the Xbox One and PlayStation versions has been confirmed” declared Martin Wahlund, CEO of Fatshark.
Though we don't have an exact date yet, we do know it is slated for a 2018 release, with a PC launch slated for Q1 of next year. For those interested in getting a taste a little early, the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One beta sign-up is now live for those wanted to test out the game before it's full launch at a later date.
