The release of Elite Dangerous on the Xbox One is not too far away, with Frontier Developments sayuing that it will arrive on October 6. The news came directly from the developer in a new Q&A with fans over the weekend from CEO David Braben.




Elite Dangerous launched on the PC last December while the space combat simulator has been in the Xbox Game Preview program for a couple of months now. Elite Dangerous is also set to arrive on the PlayStation 4, but Frontier Developments hasn't provided a date for that just yet. The first expansion for Elite Dangerous, Horizons, will be made available on the Xbox One, but no date has been provided for that, either.


Interestingly, Braben hinted that we will "probably" see account transfers between Xbox One and PC editions of Elite Dangerous, which would be pretty cool. Horizons will be launching on the PC later in the holidays for $59.99 and will introduce the ability of landing on any of the billions of in-game worlds, dogfighting over their surfaces, or driving on them with vehicles.
