Gone Home is Coming to Consoles After All

By Marc Caccamise, 10 months ago
The Fullbright Company has announced that Gone Home will be coming to the Xbox One early next year. The game was originally announced for consoles back in March 2014, but financial troubles at independent publisher Majesco left the port in limbo and "not actively in development."

The Xbox One version of Gone Home uses the Unity 5 engine, instead of Unity 4 which was used for the original PC version. The game will also feature 90 minutes worth of behind-the-scenes developer commentary.

Steve Gaynor, the writer and designer of Gone Home, and the co-founder of Fullbright, shared the news:
Ever since Gone Home came out we’ve wanted to be able to bring it to people who maybe aren’t PC gamers, or don’t have a good enough computer, or who just want to play in their living room, maybe to share the experience with a friend or loved one from the comfort of their couch. Our goal wasn’t to add or change things, but just to bring the game that players know & love onto consoles in the best possible form we could.
Gone Home is set to release on the Xbox One on January 12th, 2016. Gaynor, in response to a question of the game's price, claimed that the plan at this point is launch it at $19.99.
