Sowing the seeds.
Focus Home Interactive have announced that the next entry in their Farming Simulator series will be launching at the end of this year; Farming Simulator 2017 is going to rake in the harvest at the end of 2016, launching simultaneously for PC and consoles.
“It’s been a pleasure working with Focus throughout all these years,” said Thomas Frey, VP of developer Giants Software. “This partnership is the water on the seed that made Farming Simulator grow into the global phenomenon it is today. Each time we release a new version together we reach more people, and we look forward to expanding this reach even further in the coming years.”
“Farming Simulator is a one of a kind story in the video game industry,” added Focus Home Interactive president Cedric Lagarrigue. “Years ago, we imagined a unique destiny for this game and Giants Software, their creators. It is with great satisfaction that we succeed in reaching all of our objectives. There are still a lot of beautiful pages to write for Farming Simulator, and it starts right now with the simultaneous release of the game on PC and consoles at the end of the year.”
As for which consoles the game will be launching on, we don’t actually know yet- though PlayStation and Xbox format releases are probably a given. Maybe one for the mysterious Nintendo NX too?
