Klei’s super successful survival game Don’t Starve has found its way onto a number of platforms, including the PC, PS4 and Wii U, with Microsoft’s living room hardware the notable exception. That was the case a few days ago, but this week the developer confirmed the title will be coming to the Xbox One.
“lifelower”, a Twitter account that proclaims to be the “XBLA watchdog”, noticed the game had been classified by USK, Germany’s ratings board. Rather than remain tight-lipped, Klei admitted the game is indeed coming to the console:
Hmmm… I guess the cat's out of the bag! We'll update with more info once we have a date. https://t.co/m5vGsbkUnw

It seems an easy decision on the developer’s part — it’s already done the hard yards via Sony and Nintendo’s offerings, so porting Don’t Starve to the Xbox One doesn’t come as a huge surprise.
Sadly, multiplayer isn’t included, though that’s still going through Early Access and who knows, Klei might provide an update for the console versions down the track once the PC version is rock-solid.
