Temtem is headed to PS5, XBXS, and the Switch, not just PC, when it launches next year


Still got your eye on Temtem? The totally-not-Pokemon MMO hit early access earlier this year, with plans to formally launch next summer, and as of yesterday, Spanish studio Crema Games revealed that it’s got plans even bigger than just a PC launch.

“Today, at the Sony State of Play event, Humble Games and Crema announced that Temtem is looking towards the future and will be prioritizing next-gen console development by releasing on the PlayStation 5. Temtem will also launch on PC, Xbox Series X and Nintendo Switch in 2021.”

The previous roadmap had penciled in the console ports for spring of next year, but we’re not sure that will hold. Crema’s blog entry talks up its 2v2 competitive scene, MMO nature, and crowdfunding success: In fact, the game pulled in over half a million bucks back in 2018. The new pics and trailer are below.

I don’t want to Poopoo on Temtem, but it really did not do anything for me in the State of Play being one of the few PS5 announcements. It isn’t Temtem’s fault but Sony really needs to show something that looks even superficially next-gen that is coming around launch.

I am completely baffled by the platform holders both having almost nothing ready to show to get interest or announce for launch/”launch window”. It feels like they are playing chicken with each other on holding back price/release date info, but the closer we get to November it makes me feel like they aren’t actually holding back much beyond that.

Temtem looks cool though and I’ll check it out when it launches on PC. Not sure why they wouldn’t put it on Xbox One and PS4, but maybe that is a matter of being stretched too thin and not wanting to have to commit to long term support for platforms whose owners are dying to abandon. What a weird game generation transition this has been.
