For omtrent et år siden kunne Facepunch Studios afsløre på overraskende vis, at det populære Rust endelig ville komme til PlayStation 4 og Xbox One i 2020. Det skete ikke, og ikke bare det, vi har stort set intet hørt til projektet igennem hele året.
I en pressemeddelelse fra Facepunch indrømmer de da også, at COVID-19 har introduceret nogle problematikker, der gør at de nu må skubbe konsolversionerne til næste år. De skriver følgende:
"Why have we been so quiet for so long? The world of games dev is a fickle beast; you never have the full picture up front and the development process often becomes more of a journey of discovery when bringing a PC title to console. As much as engaging with players is extremely important, we believe it also has to be meaningful and as we've been working away behind the scenes, we haven't felt ready to share anything with you yet. As a company in 2020, a year that has brought very challenging times for many, we've felt very fortunate to be able to keep doing what we love. We've always had some remote workers but moving the entire company home to keep everyone safe has presented challenges as we've found new ways to work with each other in the new normal that this year had in store for us."
