A new listing appeared on Taiwan’s national game ratings board, indicating that the mining-survival title Deep Rock Galactic will come to the PS4 and PS5 in the near future. There is currently no information on a possible release date. Neither developer Ghost Ship Games nor publisher Coffee Stain Studios have confirmed the PlayStation ports. However, the Taiwan game ratings board has accurately leaked upcoming game releases in the past.
Deep Rock Galactic was originally an early access game for the PC, originally available via Steam since 2018. Coffee Stain Studios later officially released the game for the PC and Xbox One in 2020 to positive reception.
The game has yet to officially release for next-gen and PlayStation consoles. However, a “big update” is also set to announce on November 4, 2021. Ghost Ship Games also released a teaser a few days ago. It’s possible that the PS4 and PS5 ports could be announced on that day.
A cooperative first-person multiplayer game, Deep Rock Galactic lets players control a team of four space dwarves who explore procedurally generated cave systems. Players explore the cave systems to gather valuable resources while fighting off strange alien creatures. There are a total of four playable classes, from an Engineer capable of setting down sentry guns to a flame-thrower wielding Driller class.
Since its release, Deep Rock Galactic has received various cosmetic additions such as the MegaCorp Pack and Dark Future Pack. The additions allow players to modify the look of their weapons to cyberpunk and high-tech themes. Most recently, Ghost Ship Games released a series of special Halloween-themed headgear.
Back in 2018, THQ Nordic bought Coffee Stain Studios during a slew of acquisitions in that year. Embracer Group later bought THQ Nordic earlier this year, and is continuing to expand and acquire more video game companies, publishers, and studios.
