Kena: Bridge of Spirits was first released over two years ago. Ember Lab, developers behind the game, partnered with SIE for a PlayStation exclusivity deal, which meant that the title never made it to Xbox consoles.
While audiences expected the game to remain on PlayStation, developer Ember Lab has hinted at an Xbox release in a recent tweet.
Why it Matters: Kena: Bridge of Spirits is the first and only game by Ember Lab. Upon launch, the game was positively met by fans and critics alike, and many Xbox fans have wanted to try the title since then.
Never give up! 🧡

In response to a fan asking about the game’s release on Xbox consoles, developer Ember Lab replied:
“Never Give Up.”
Previously, games like Yakuza Kiwami 2 and more were released on Xbox platforms years after their PlayStation releases. Games with exclusivity deals, like Stray, are also expected to release on Xbox later this year.
As such, Kena: Brdige of Spirits may follow a similar trend, coming to PlayStation’s rival platform at some point.
Never say never! 🧡
