“Rust is and forever will be the baby and brainchild of Facepunch Studios, and we’re extremely grateful to be able to take what they’ve done and create our own console edition of their incredible game,” Mark South, Chief Operating Officer at Double Eleven, said. “Our Console Editions of Rust are certainly Rust as people know it, but under the hood – where we’ve spent the last few years – we’ve created an exceptional Rust experience designed for consoles and their players. We’re looking forward to hearing player feedback when fans can jump in later this spring.”
Rust Console Edition launches May 21st for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The game will also be playable on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S through backward compatibility.
