Today Paradox Interactive announced that Stellaris will be headed to both the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One . The game has been quite popular on the PC and Paradox says that this is the first time a grand strategy game will be released on consoles.
The move to console is being done in tandem by both the Paradox Development studio and Tantalaus Media.
A trailer for the announcement was also released today as part of the company’s Gamescom announcements.
Daniel Moregard who is the game director at Paradox Interactive said “Grand Strategy is often considered a niche genre even on the PC, but we believe that while a console audience exists, a game like Stellaris simply hasn’t made it to those platforms yet. With the help of Tantalus’ expertise, we’re happy to take that leap!. Console players can look forward to the true Grand Strategy experience and continued DLC and support after launch with Stellaris: Console Edition.”
The game was well received during its initial launch on PC with generally positive reviews towards it. So far it has sold over 1.5 million copies worldwide according to Paradox Interactive.
