Now that the PC gaming world has had a chance to spill through tricky environments as an octopus disguised as a human, the Young Horses development team have set April in their sights for a PlayStation 4 release of Octodad: Dadliest Catch.
While not a confirmed release date, the April window is more of a rough target. Young Horses has made it apparent that they want to hit the console properly rather than too early, so expect the date to slide back and forth as they figure out when, exactly, Octodad is ready.
In the tweet that clarified the potential release window, the official Octodad account made mention of a possible Xbox One version of the game.
April is the PS4 goal. There was never a definite date, or delay. Also, considering Xbox One means we thought about it in our brains. #news

Let’s leave that as a simple possibility, shall we? Mentioning that they’ve thought about seeing the game on the Xbox One is not a confirmation that it’s coming. It’s a confirmation that “yes, that’s an idea that we’ve had” from the team.
We’ve already played through Octodad: Dadliest Catch several times on the PC. It’s a gem of a game, though it did cause quite a critical dust-up from publications around the world. Most either adored or hated this cepahlopod’s silly journey. We loved the silliness, humor and difficulty, others found those bits fell flat.
Have you had a chance to check out Octodad: Dadliest Catch? What do you think about the upcoming PS4 version?
