UPDATE December 9, 2016: For the fans patiently (or impatiently) waiting for RGPR (#RGPRenegade) on Xbox One and Windows 10, we are still in the final round of certification but had to battle some boss bugs. As it's one of the first Play Anywhere titles, the requirements for RGPR are tough, but better for both player experience and network security. We'll be blasting the news about a launch date as soon as we have it!
Dear Xbox One and Windows 10 fans,
Thank you for your extreme patience. When we first announced Riptide GP: Renegade over a year ago at PAX West 2015, we showed the game running on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. And our plan was always to release the game simultaneously to both platforms. Unfortunately as you know, the Xbox One (and Windows 10) versions have been delayed far beyond what we originally expected.
All that's about to change!
We're happy to announce that there is light at the end of the tunnel. This week, the Xbox One and Windows 10 version of RGPR is going into final certification testing at Microsoft. This is really good news; it means that we just need to clear a few compliance tests and we'll be clear for launch. We won't be able to give you an exact release date until the game has passed cert, but we hope to have that announcement for you very soon.
Xbox Play Anywhere
Riptide GP: Renegade is going to be one of the very first third-party titles released with the "Xbox Play Anywhere" label. That means you'll be able to buy it once and you'll get it on both Xbox One and Windows 10. You'll also be able to sync your game progress. earn Xbox Achievements and Gamerscore, and play online multiplayer across both Xbox One and Windows 10. (And of course, don't forget that the Xbox One is the ONLY version that lets you play local split screen with up to SIX players!)
We're very excited to finally be bringing our latest game to the Xbox platform, and we hope you agree that when the game finally releases -- it will have been worth the wait!
