Octopath Traveler 2 releases on Feb. 24, 2023. The game is a sequel to 2018’s critically-acclaimed Octopath Traveler, developed and published by Square-Enix, known for RPG series Final Fantasy and Kingdom Hearts. But is it coming to Xbox?

The Octopath Traveler series’ core concept is that it follows eight characters on their journeys across a fantastical world. While each character is separate, their stories will interconnect as they each pursue their ultimate goal. Each character has a special action connected to their profession: for example, Throné Agnuis, a thief, can steal items from NPCs, while Partitio Yellowil, a merchant, can peacefully purchase them.
Games in the series are rendered in a unique “HD-2D” style that juxtaposes old-school pixel graphics with high-definition backgrounds, creating a diorama-like effect. This style was a major selling point in the original game and has been improved in the sequel, according to the game’s website.
Will Octopath Traveler 2 Release on Xbox?
Unfortunately, players on Xbox won’t immediately be able to play Octopath Traveler 2 when it releases next month. According to the game’s website, pre-orders are only listed as being available for Nintendo Switch, PC, and PlayStation platforms.
This marks a reversal for the series, as the first game was released on Xbox but not PlayStation. While this news may be a relief to PlayStation players who wanted to play the first game but didn’t get a chance, it may also be disappointing to Xbox fans. Luckily, the sequel is telling a separate story from the original with new characters, so the original narrative remains a complete experience.
