Developer Subset Games has said PS5, PS4 ports of its supposedly excellent strategical title Into the Breach are "within the realm of possibility". First released for PC and Nintendo Switch in 2018, the game is being expanded next month via an Advanced Edition that includes new content and all-new versions for mobile devices. Although, the Nintendo Switch remains the only home console Into the Breach is available on.
Speaking to Push Square, programmer Matthew Davis was hesitant to commit to promising PS5, PS4 versions of the game. When asked whether ports are possible, he said: "It's within the realm of possibility. We've got nothing against PS4/PS5. But I'd like to get back to original development in the immediate future."
As for why Into the Breach hasn't appeared on any other consoles besides Nintendo's hybrid system, Davis explains how the team only has so much time as well as limited resources. "We're a very small studio with only 3 full-time developers. Every port takes up time not only in its initial development, but also in post-release support and maintenance." While the team would love to have the game available everywhere, it's also eager to work on new content and other projects. "It's a difficult balancing act."
Commanding an impressive Metacritic rating of 90, our sister site Nintendo Life agreed with the overall score in a 9/10 verdict. "Into The Breach is a brutal, uncompromising game of making hard decisions and living with your mistakes, but the short length of battles and endless variety of playthroughs makes for an extremely addictive experience."
While Subset Games would already have PS5, PS4 ports done if it was as easy as flipping a switch, it doesn't sound like Into the Breach will be coming to Sony systems in the near future. Maybe don't get your hopes up too much.
