Is Rise Of The Ronin Coming To Xbox? What About The Release?

Rise of the Ronin for PS5 was one of Sony’s biggest and most exciting announcements at State of Play in September 2022. It is a new action RPG from Team Ninja, which made games like Nioh and Ninja Gaiden. Even though the game isn’t coming out until 2024, Rise of the Ronin already seems to be very anticipated. In fact, Xbox players will probably be wondering if they’ll get a chance to play it.

Rise of the Ronin doesn’t look like it will ever come to the Xbox Series X and S or Xbox One. Rise of the Ronin was announced as a PS5 console exclusive instead of a timed console exclusive during the State of Play show. This could mean that the game will never come to Microsoft’s platform.

On top of that, since Rise of the Ronin was first shown, news has come out that Sony has been helping to make the game. Sony has a team called XDev that works on game development inside the company. In the past, they have helped outside studios make PlayStation games. The Liverpool-based XDev team has helped make games like LittleBigPlanet 1, 2, and 3, Heavy Rain, Returnal, and more in the past.

In the past, Sony Japan took care of the same tasks for games made by third-party studios in Japan. Now that Sony Japan has shut down, it looks like an XDev Japan team is helping Team Ninja make Rise of the Ronin. Senior XDev producer Jason Stewart tweeted that he is working on Rise of the Ronin with Team Ninja while in Japan.

Even so, this isn’t a 100% guarantee that Rise of the Ronin will never come to the Xbox, since Sony has put out games for the Xbox before. In fact, it was just one game: MLB The Show. But even though we live in a world where Sony can put out games for the Xbox, MLB: The Show is a licenced sports game, and reports say that MLB had a lot to do with that decision.

Seeing a new IP like Rise of the Ronin come to Xbox is a whole different story. Rise of the Ronin on Xbox isn’t impossible. Xbox has been expanding quickly and aggressively into Japan recently, getting games like Persona, Like a Dragon, and Danganronpa. Still, since Sony is helping Team Ninja make Rise of the Ronin, it won’t even be possible until a very long time after 2024.

About Rise of the Ronin

Rise of the Ronin is a new action role-playing game for one player made by the same people who made Nioh and Ninja Gaiden.

Rise of the Ronin is set in 18th-century Japan during the Edo Period, which was one of the worst times in Japan’s history. It took seven years to make. You play as a ronin who lives through “the most important revolution in the history of Japan, including the darkest and ugliest chapters that many will avoid” in a time when Japan is ruled by cruel people and is sick.

Rise of the Ronin is set to come out in 2024 for PS5. It will be similar to old games like Way of the Samurai and Sony’s own Ghost of Tsushima.
