Octopath Traveler 2 is an upcoming 2D JRPG game developed by Square Enix and Acquire. It will be the third entry in the Octopath series and the direct sequel to Octopath Traveler. The story and environment appear to be more epic than ever, although the new Octopath looks identical to the first game. The sequel to Octopath Traveler won’t be a Nintendo Switch exclusive, unlike the original title at release.
It was initially announced that Octopath Traveler 2 would not be coming to Xbox consoles. The only platforms listed in the announcement trailer were Nintendo Switch, Steam, PlayStation 5, and PlayStation 4. This move from Square Enix was bizarre, considering the fact that Octopath Traveler is available on Xbox Game Pass. On the other hand, the first game is not even available on any PlayStation console.
However,Shpeshal Nick – a popular leaker, has hinted at the possibility of Octopath Traveler 2 coming to Xbox. He has responded to a user complaining about the lack of Xbox ports for several Square Enix titles, including Octopath Traveler 2. Nick’s response claims that Xbox users should not worry about missing out on Octopath Traveler 2.
I wouldn’t stress *too* much about Octopath not coming
It only makes sense because Octopath Traveler is still on Xbox and Game Pass, as mentioned earlier. Perhaps, Square Enix is just delaying Octopath Traveler 2’s Game Pass rollout till after its original release. After all, the original Octopath did exceptionally well on the Xbox Game Pass and was loved by players.
Octopath Traveler 2 will be launched on February 24, 2023, on Nintendo Switch, PC, PS4, and PS5. It is currently up for pre-order on the platforms mentioned in both the Standard and Collector’s editions.
We’re hoping for a post-launch Octopath Traveler 2 Xbox release at some point in the future. Xbox users with Xbox Game Pass subscriptions can still play the original game for free in the meantime.
