In fact, the game developed by Arkhane Studios is about to be released on Playstation 5 and PC from September 14, 2021, and Xbox players are already checking their watches. As you know, the talented French studio has been part of the large Xbox family since Microsoft took over Bethesda. But “business is business” and Arkhane had already signed an exclusivity agreement with Sony for their game even before the huge Redmond acquisition took effect!
