Hi-Fi Rush heads to PS5 in March

Rockin'.

Following the announcement of Pentiment and Grounded heading to the Nintendo Switch, it seems like Hi-Fi Rush is slamming its way onto the PS5 this March.

The reveal arrived a bit earlier than intended, mind. It seems Bethesda’s LATAM YouTube channel pulled the trigger a little too early, confirming the game’s release on Sony’s console on March 18. The video was swiftly taken down. But an official announcement will probably arrive shortly, now that the cat has officially escaped the bag.

Hi-Fi Rush is the third Xbox game to head to other platforms

As mentioned, Hi-Fi Rush will be the third game to leave the shelter of the Xbox umbrella. Before the video was unceremoniously unleashed, Pentiment and Grounded were revealed for the Switch during today’s Partner Direct.

The move directly follows a podcast last week in which the Xbox team confirmed that four Xbox-published games were heading to other platforms. Head of Xbox Phil Spencer said the change would allow the publisher to “invest in maybe future iterations of those, sequels to those, or other games like them in our portfolio.” The podcast was announced after rumors began to swirl that Xbox-exclusive games were going elsewhere and that Microsoft may go third-party only in the wake of rising development costs.

All three games confirmed today were revealed in a report by The Verge last week. The only game in the report that hasn’t yet hopped the fence is Sea of Thieves. But with three games out of the four now confirmed for other platforms, we’ll likely hear word on Rare’s PvPvE pirate adventure soon enough.

Hi-Fi Rush was surprise-launched in January 2023 on Xbox and Game Pass. The cel-shaded, rhythm-based game became an instant hit and quickly earned a passionate fanbase. We loved it, awarding it the best Xbox game of 2023.
