The Witness receives ESRB rating on Xbox One
The Xbox One is one of those "other platforms" that The Witness' website mentions that it will be released on. It has just been rated by the ESRB.
It looks like The Witness will be released on Xbox One after all, as the Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB) has given it a rating.
The Witness will be released on PlayStation 4 and PC on January 26th. Its official website outlines that it will be released on iOS “months after that” and “a bit later” to “other platforms.” This rating indicates that the Xbox One is one of those “other platforms.”
The Witness has received an E rating, though the ESRB website mentions alcohol references. It says, “Some lines of dialogue reference alcohol (e.g., “The whole universe is in a glass of wine” and “Let it give us one more final pleasure: drink it and forget it all!”).
The Witness arrives on PlayStation 4 and PC later this month; it’s not clear when it will be released on Xbox One, but it is coming.
