As with Starfield, the sequel to The Outer Worlds will not release on PlayStation 5 and PS4. We were taken with the original RPG, awarding it a 9/10 in our review and describing it as a “triumph”. Earlier this year, we also covered the game’s Murder on Eridanos expansion, which we thought was pretty good as well.
However, with Microsoft’s acquisition of developer Obsidian, the sequel will no longer release on Sony’s suite of systems. While it’s clearly still extremely early days for The Outer Worlds 2 – a glossy trailer effectively poked fun at the fact that the studio has nothing to show – you won’t be playing it on a PlayStation platform when it eventually does deploy.
