Those responsible for the survival game Rust announced today that the release has to be delayed to the coming year, ie 2021. Among other things, the switch to the home office contributed to this issue.
As of today, the development studio Facepunch Studios and the publisher Double Eleven announced that the console versions of the joint project Rust will no longer appear this year on PS4 and Xbox One. Instead, the survival title will be released over the coming year.
As the publisher said on their official website, “We love making great games and bringing them to new audiences, but that sometimes means taking a bit longer to get it right than we originally planned and comes at the unfortunate cost of the disappointment and trust of those who were so keen to play it upon launch.”
Those responsible have not commented on the game for a long time, because unpredictable difficulties arose when porting from the PC to the console. So far, they did not feel ready to reveal any new information.
The year 2020 also demanded a lot from the developers at Facepunch Studios. The complete changeover to the home office model posed a major challenge. However, the studio is happy that they can continue to pursue their calling despite the difficult time.
The goal of Rust is to survive. To do this, you have to procure food, survive cold phases and beware of other players. Among other things, you have the opportunity to go hunting and set up a campfire. You can also form an alliance with peaceful players and then found your own city.
Rust is currently available for PC via Steam and was released in February 2018. However, the early access version was released in December 2013. The title can only be played online. New information about the game should be announced in the foreseeable future.
