A week ago, we reported that first-person puzzle game The Witness could be heading to the Xbox One after being rated by both the Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB) and the Pan European Game Information Board (PEGI). This Xbox One release is now confirmed as indie game developer Jonathan Blow told IGN yesterday that the game will be available on the Xbox Store on September 13th.

The Witness was previously released on PS4 and Windows in January to critical acclaim, and Blow shared that the Xbox One version will be very similar. “There are some technical differences, but it’s basically the same game,” he explained. Moreover, the game developer added that there won’t be any exclusive content in the Xbox One version to as he feels that it “would kind of… mess up the game.”

Lastly, an iOS version of the game is still in the pipeline though Blow didn’t shared a release date to IGN. “It’s such a lower-end platform and we have to redo a ton of stuff,” he added.
