So people are wondering if Slime Rancher 2 is going to be on all platforms. The first game took the world by storm, and we’ve been waiting on a second one for a long while. Well, it’s pretty much here. And the good news, it is more of the same. If you like part 1, part 2 will definitely be up your alley. Let’s be honest, this game has “cute and addictive” nailed down. Just follow a very simple formula of catching slime and you got the basic concept down. But there is a lot more to it than just that. The depth of the game reveals itself once you play for a little bit.

But let’s get to the good stuff. Is it going to be on all platforms? Well, bad news, folks…

Is Slime Rancher 2 on All Platforms?

First off, the game can be grabbed on Steam right now ahead of the release. So it all starts there.

Slime Rancher 2 is set to release on Xbox Series X|S and PC. The game will not be available on last-generation consoles, including Xbox One, which is pretty unfortunate news.

On top of that, SR2 appears to be a timed exclusive for Xbox, which means that the game will not come to PS5 until sometime after the game’s initial launch. It is a next-gen-only release as Slime Rancher 2 will seemingly not release on PS4.

Lastly, there seems to be no speaking of it on the Switch, sadly,

Slime Rancher 2 Will Come to Playstation….Eventually.

SR2 has a pretty interesting release schedule. It starts off as a timed exclusive for Xbox, and honestly, Xbox is overdue for some good exclusives. Not too long afterward, PS5 players will get to experience it as well.

The lack of backward compatibility with older systems is kind of a bummer, but we’re still looking forward to this game.
