Harmony: Fall of Reverie is a story-rich, narrative-driven adventure game developed and published by Don’t Nod Entertainment, the creative force behind classics such as the Life is Strange series, Twin Mirror, Tell Me Why, and Vampyr. Looks like their upcoming title is right around the corner, with the game releasing on June 8, 2023. Harmony Fall of Reverie will be released on PC, Nintendo Switch, PS5, and Xbox Series X/S. However, what’s the game’s status on PS4 or Xbox One? In this article, we will share details on the same.
Well, the game focuses on the adventures of Polly, a clairvoyant who is returning home to look for her missing mother. In the meantime, she discovers her powers and connects to another realm called Reverie. The game is choice-driven, meaning you make critical choices that affect both Reverie and the real world positively or negatively. The game is said to have multiple endings, thereby enforcing replayability. But can it be enjoyed by players on the PS4, or Xbox One?
Is there a Harmony Fall of Reverie PS4, and Xbox One Release Date
No Official Announcement
At the time of writing this article, Don’t Nod Entertainment has not made an official statement on whether the game will be released on Xbox One or PS4. The official website of the game states that Harmony: Fall of Reverie will be released on 8th June 2023 on PC and Nintendo Switch, and on PS5 and Xbox Series X/S on 22nd June 2023. There was no mention of PS4 or Xbox One.
When will Harmony: Fall of Reverie be released on PS4 and Xbox One?
We all know that the Nintendo Switch, like the PS4 and Xbox One, is an eighth-gen console. So why won’t the game be released on PS4 and Xbox One since they belong to the same generation as the Nintendo Switch? The answer is fairly simple if you try to view the problem from a developer’s perspective. It’s no news that the PS4 and Xbox One perform worse than their superiors, – PS5 and Xbox X/S. The old-gen consoles can barely run any AAA title from 2023 at max settings, and with time, they will become obsolete. Current-gen consoles offer better graphical fidelity and performance than old-gen consoles, so releasing the game on the current-gen consoles is understandable. Although the Nintendo Switch is an old-gen console, it is cheaper and more portable than a PS4 or Xbox One and has a sizeable market of its own, which is why the developers might have decided to release the game on it.
Although Don’t Nod Entertainment is a popular development studio, it might happen that the team did not have enough capital and resources to port the game to PS4 and Xbox One. Keep in mind that a lot of time and money will be invested in porting the game to these consoles with the fewest bugs while maintaining a balance between graphics and performance.
Secondly, featuring games on PS5 and Xbox Series X/S is far more lucrative than that on PS4 and Xbox One. Current-gen consoles are the trend, and hopping on the train of a trend brings more exposure to a product, in this case, the video game. So, releasing Harmony Fall of Reverie on the current-gen consoles, PC, and Nintendo Switch might be best for the game. However, this is just mere speculation from our side, so take this information with a pinch of salt. Don’t Nod Entertainment might eventually port Harmony: Fall of Reverie to PS4 and Xbox One sometime later, but the chances of this happening are quite low.
