I do not know If anyone knows yet, but I got another "State of the Crusade" email today, which contained this:
"Consoles are confirmed
While we can’t say WHEN the XB1 and PS4 versions are coming, it’s 100% official that they are coming. Again it’s EPIC that’s helping out here. We at Behaviour have been doing upports, downports and sideports for many years, so this does not affect our main development pipeline. In fact, we made some great deals in this all so I’d say it’s actually a benefit for our development pipeline. But there are huge questions. Can I transfer my characters to another platform? Or even play on all platforms? Play against other platforms?
No, it’s simply not allowed yet. We’ve seen exceptions, and who knows what the future will bring us. But at this point in time, the Founder’s program is a program for PC and buying a package is not for Consoles – but they will become available shortly. I’m hoping we’ll have the transfers as a commonplace service in the future between platforms, I think that’s only fair to customers, but it’s not entirely our choice. But we’ll fight, for your right, to … uhm … transfer. That sounded better in my head."
As well as some other stuff. Certainly safe to say that this is good to hear, and increases my anticipation for this game a bit further.
