Chinese game developer HoYoverse recently unveiled the latest trailer of Honkai: Star Rail during Sony’s State of Play event. The trailer revealed the launch date for the PlayStation 5 version of the game, which is set to be released on October 11. Honkai: Star Rail has been available on mobile platforms and Windows PCs since its global release in April, but there are now indications that it will also be coming to Xbox and Switch.
A Chinese media outlet, IThome, has reported that the Sony trailer included a notification stating that the game is “console exclusive for a limited time.” This suggests that Honkai: Star Rail will eventually be released on other consoles such as Xbox and Switch. However, no official announcement has been made regarding the release dates for these platforms.
Mobile players have shown great enthusiasm for Honkai: Star Rail, as they have collectively spent $500 million on the game between its release on April 26 and July 31, according to Sensor Tower, an intelligence firm. This demonstrates the popularity and financial success of the game since its global launch.
With the impending release of the PlayStation 5 version and the possibility of launching on Xbox and Switch, Honkai: Star Rail is set to attract an even larger player base across multiple platforms. Fans of the game can look forward to experiencing the action-packed gameplay, captivating storyline, and stunning graphics on their preferred gaming devices.
