Double Fine previously said the Xbox One version would be released around the same time as the PC version. GameSpot has contacted Double Fine for an update on the console release.

The strategy game was successfully Kickstarted last year, raising a total of $1,229,014. News of an Xbox One version came as a surprise to backers, who believed they were funding a PC game.

Project lead Brad Muir responded to worries by assuring backers the Xbox One news wouldn't cause issues.

“Nothing has changed with our plans to bring Massive Chalice to the PC and to make it available for our backers first,” the studio said in an update to backers. “YEAH! During this time we'll be porting the game to the Xbox One.

As soon as we're done porting the game, we'll launch it as a console exclusive on Xbox One. We're super stoked to have this additional support in giving Massive Chalice the next-gen console treatment!“
