Sorry TC it is not coming to the 360. It was cancelled last year.

They are "in talks" with Microsoft but they have been saying that for years and Microsoft won't budge on it's policies.


The article you quote is from June 2013, before Microsoft let developers self-publish. Here is a more recent article, although just a blog it makes more sense. They can put it on Xbox One, if they want to without any policies stopping them.

But they have been saying the remakes might come to the 360 for years and nothing has happened. They are still stuck on the same policy the 360 had. If there is an Xbox One version they will have to delay the game to make it as it is required under the indie policies.

Not as new as your article but more information

What policies are you referring to?

Microsoft has changed their indie publishing policies with ID@Xbox and dropped the patching fee, along with other things.


The game still has to be released at the same time or before the others on the Xbox. They are a small studio and having to delay the game another 6 months will hurt them. That policy has alway been a sticking point for the developer.


Exactly. Lorne Lanning has even confirmed they don't have an Xbox One or 360 version of 'Oddworld: New 'n Tasty' in development currently so in order to work with Microsoft's "console parity" clause, they would need to delay the game in order to release the game the same day on all platforms.

Lanning said they're not doing that so he's unable to greenlight an Xbox One version yet.
