Axis Games, the studio behind independent football title Axis Football, has announced that Axis Football 2020 will launch this fall in September.

The game will launch on Steam and Xbox One.

For those wondering why the PlayStation 4 wasn’t mentioned, Danny Jugen, Axis Game’s President and Lead Designer, announced that the game will not initially be available for the console. While going into some details, Jugan said that even though the team had a developer working solely on getting the game working on the PS4, it still wasn’t enough for Sony.

“With that, we were still not able to reconcile with Sony and get it in a stage where they would accept it,” he said. “They kept saying we had issues with saving and loading, and their reasoning was that if a user did these really random things that no user would logically do, then it would corrupt the data.”

While Jugan didn’t say the game won’t come out on the system at all, after the struggles of trying to get Axis Football 19 on the PS4, the team felt it best to focus on the Xbox One and Steam release for this year.

“That’s a difficult decision because we know lots of you have PlayStations,” he said. “We feel really bad we’ve kind of strung it along.”
