Black Myth: Wukong Won’t Be On Xbox At Launch

Black Myth Wukong Xbox

While many expected Black Myth: Wukong to be on PlayStation 5 (PS5), Xbox Series X|S, and PC when it releases on August 20, that won’t be the case anymore. Instead, Black Myth: Wukong will only be available on PC and PS5 when it first releases.

The game was originally confirmed for Xbox Series X|S at The Game Awards 2023. However, after releasing a new trailer at Summer Game Fest 2024, it was revealed that the Xbox version of the game was being held back.

“PC and PS5 users can enjoy the full game starting August 20, 2024,” developer Game Science says in its “pre-order FAQ”. “We are currently optimizing the Xbox Series X|S version to meet our quality standards, so it won’t release simultaneously with the other platforms.

“We apologize for the delay and aim to minimize the wait for Xbox users. We will announce the release date as soon as it meets our quality standards.”

As far as an Xbox release date, that wasn’t confirmed by the company. Nor was there any hint as to when a release date would be revealed.
