William Chyr Studio will release an Xbox Series version of Manifold Garden alongside the launch of Xbox Series platforms on November 10, the developer announced. The game will run at native 4K resolution and 60 frames per second on Xbox Series X, and 1440p resolution at 60 frames per second on Xbox Series S.
Users who own the Xbox One version of Manifold Garden will receive the Xbox Series version as a free upgrade via Smart Delivery.
According to William Chyr Studio, the next-generation upgrade will be a “timed exclusive” for Xbox Series. In a ResetEra post, Manifold Garden producer Syrenne McNulty explained, “We can’t talk about the business realities such as why we’re on Xbox first versus PlayStation, who authored what language, etc. I can however be clear—no deal was signed, nor money changed hands, regarding a next-gen upgrade policy. We were working on the Series X | S version, and it was ready for launch (in fact, it’s already live for anyone with the hardware as of today.) No conspiracy theories here.”
As for a PlayStation 5 upgrade patch, McNulty said to “stay tuned for future news.” She later added, “The fact that our PlayStation answer is ‘stay tuned’ comes from us, not any of our business partners. We don’t want to talk about things until we have details and an announcement ready.”
Manifold Garden is available now for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, PC via the Epic Games Store, and Apple Arcade. The PC version will come to Steam on October 20.
