Gone Home is to be released for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 next month, following its cancellation earlier this year.

The Fullbright Company yesterday announced that the console edition would hit stores on January 12th.

Originally announced last year, the console edition was cancelled earlier this year due to financial issues with it’s publisher Midnight City but has since been revived.

“Ever since Gone Home came out we’ve wanted to be able to bring it to people who maybe aren’t PC gamers, or don’t have a good enough computer, or who just want to play in their living room, maybe to share the experience with a friend or loved one from the comfort of their couch,” said Steve Gaynor, Fullbright co-founder.

“Our goal wasn’t to add or change things, but just to bring the game that players know & love onto consoles in the best possible form we could.”

Set in 1995, it follows 21-year-old Kaitlin Greenbriar who returns home to a mansion in Arbor Hill, Oregon willed to Kaitlin’s father by his uncle. Players must explore the mansion for clues to a hidden mystery.

The critically acclaimed title, originally released in 2013, went on to win numerous end of year awards including two BAFTAs for Best Debut and Best Story.
