    It feels like i been waiting forever and it still hasn't came out, what's worse, there's not even any news about it on the web anymore.

    Can we get a date or hint or even a gleam of hope?

    Console ports are still very much on the agenda, and the devs will be providing more details about them at a later date.

    It was announced to be released in early 2015, it's been roughly 3 years and not even a mumble, it seems like chucklefish doesn't want to speak about it, it's out on pc, and (correct me if I'm wrong) Xbox one.

    It's not out on Xbox One yet. Last I heard it's absolutely on the agenda, and I'm pretty sure they're looking to form a dedicated team to handle the port. But as I said, they'll announce something when they're ready.

    Been hearing this same line for years now.

    Chucklefish has been burned by a missed release date too many times, that's why the best answer you'll get is "When it's ready".

    Also they are tired of having nearly all comments on facebook and twitter asking:
    "When Xbox One and Ps4?"
    "Xbox"
    "PS4"
    Those i see on facebook page under all of their posts

    More like, impatient children who don't do their homework.

    There have been several posts recently made saying that the XBox version is still being worked on.

    Its not like Chucklefish wouldn't love to sell more copies of their game on more platforms, but they simply are not ready, so rushing a release would spell more disaster for them than waiting and losing the few potential customers who don't grasp this concept.

    Agreed.
    It's best they stick to one platform at a time before moving on to porting to the next. Far too often developers spread themselves out too much trying to do everything at once and that's when stuff just ends up in a big mess, and nobody wants that.

    Patience will pay off in the end here; they could give people these things sooner at the cost of it almost certainly not functioning correctly (or not functioning at all) or people could just be patient and accept the answer "It'll come when it's ready" and get a product that works. These things don't happen over the weekend.

    This subject hasn't been touched in a few months and I'm starting to get bored of the console games that I have. I really appreciate all the hard work going into the making of the console versions of Starbound. I can't wait for the release, because I know that they'll be getting a lot of sales and I'll finally get one of my favorite games on PS4. I truly wish the best for Chucklefish, but I would like some kind of update on how far along the tracks you guys have gotten on making the console version thus far.
