Wargroove developer and publisher Chucklefish has finally broken the silence on the status of the PlayStation 4 version. The PS4 port has been in the works months after the game released on other platforms, but it seems the wait is finally almost over.
After briefly commenting on the PS4 edition last week, the company has now published an official statement on its website. According to Chucklefish, it's now in "the final stages of CERT", meaning the port is with Sony so it can test the final build and provide a seal of approval. Once this process is over (and assuming all goes well), we should hear news of a release date -- and it seems this won't take long.
As for why the PS4 version has been taking longer than others, Chucklefish says there were "a number of reasons", some of which it's unable to divulge. It has said it ran into technical issues with regards to how multiplayer and content sharing works on Sony's platform.
Speaking of multiplayer, there's the question of whether Wargroove on PS4 will support cross-play, as the game does on other platforms. The answer, sadly, is no -- you won't be able to play online matches with players on PC, Xbox One, or Switch. However, user-generated maps can be shared and downloaded between all platforms.
Hopefully we'll hear of Wargroove's PS4 release date in the coming weeks. Are you looking forward to playing this turn-based strategy title on Sony's machine? Get tactical in the comments below.

And they could've just done this straight away and tried to work on x-play afterwards but eh, I've lost interest now.
I played it when it hit Xbox gamepassand deleted it 4 days later. Its overhyped
Well cross play is still in beta so not every game is getting it yet.
@KnightWolf Or you just didn’t like it...?
Don't care about cross-play, do this game has cross-save with switch?
for crying out loud! i thought sony figured the cross-play issue out? isn't that what we were told many months back — in how sony was onboard for future titles? i usually don't care one way or another for the feature, but in the case of wargroove, being able to share and play other people's maps sounded like a big piece of the experience in addition to playing against other players on said maps. get your s**t together sony!
@Porco They said the feature is in beta, hence why only a few games currently support it.
Maybe this will free up Chucklefish to finally finish the console port of Starbound. Jesus.
To be honest it looks like an RPG Maker game. I have no problem with small budget games, I have barely any AAA games and many of my favourite modern games look like they're from about 20 years ago. It's just that there's a line that can be crossed when the game looks unfinished or like it should be free. Not just in terms of graphical dazzle but an amateurish art style, awkward writing, etc.
Plus, Fire Emblem: Three Houses is out in a few weeks!
@Matroska it looks nothing like a rpgmaker game. Unless you would also describe Advance Wars as looking like an rpgmaker game, which it most certainly doesn't.
