Marvel Rivals: Is it Coming to Consoles?

Marvel Rivals is looking to become the next big hero shooter, and PC players are enjoying it, but is it coming to consoles?

NetEase is looking to take the hero shooter genre by storm with its entry, Marvel Rivals. The game brings characters from all across the Marvel multiverse to fight against one another. Marvel Rivals is currently in its closed Alpha test, and many players are loving it, while others want to experience it. Currently, the game will only be released on PC platforms at launch. However, many are hoping it will come to consoles.

Is Marvel Rivals Coming to PlayStation, Nintendo Switch & Xbox?

Yes, Marvel Rivals is coming to consoles in the future, but it seems it’s only going to be heading to the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S. The details come from dataminer GMatrixGames on X (formerly known as Twitter). The user has been going through various files in the game’s coding during its Alpha testing. As players have access to the Alpha, many are able to dig further into the files and find new details, like the game’s roster of Marvel characters.

Looking at the file names in the datamine, it is very noticeable that there are file name identifiers for both the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X consoles. A peculiar thing to notice is that there is no ID for the Nintendo Switch. In this case, it is very likely that it won’t come to Nintendo’s console. Although we expect to hear about a new Nintendo console in the next year, it seems that Marvel Rivals is going to be skipping it. The details of a console release have not been confirmed by NetEase. Below, you can find the official tweet from GMatrixGames.

When Can We Expect Marvel Rivals to Come To Consoles?

Currently, there is not an official release date for Marvel Rivals on PC or console. However, we can expect to possibly come to consoles and PCs for an open beta at the Summer Game Fest in June 2024. As Marvel Rivals is in its closed Alpha, it is very unlikely it will jump straight to a full launch. Instead, the announcement at Summer Game Fest could have the game launch in an open beta format for all players to experience. The title is free to play, and other games in the past have been released in Beta so that players can provide input and help improve the game alongside the developers.

Unfortunately, though, we do not have any confirmation on a release as NetEase is focusing on feedback from players on the Alpha. We will have to wait and see what becomes of the future for Marvel Rivals.

That is everything to know about Marvel Rivals coming to consoles and a release date for consoles as well. If you are interested in more about Marvel Rivals, be sure to head to our Guide Hub here.
