Karting sim KartKraft won’t be a PC-exclusive for long. As it turns out, the developer is targeting a console release before the end of this year.
Studio Black Delta — the small team of six individuals behind KartKraft — confirmed the news via Twitter:
We plan to release KK on consoles in Q3 2019. Stay tuned :)

The raw style of kart racing is an underserved one on consoles. Sure, games like GT Sport and Project CARS 2 feature karts, but KK would be the only one of its kind to focus solely on the discipline.
In its current Steam Early Access form, Kart Kraft features eight chassis. Players can learn the ropes in the lower classes before braving the 45hp KZ2, capable of over 3g in the corners and well over 100mph on the straights. There are multiple laser-scanned circuits from across the globe, with future plans including places like Atlanta Motorsports Park.
KartKraft’s most recent update introduced VR support. It isn’t yet clear if that will transfer over to consoles via PS VR. Nonetheless, we’ll be keeping an eye out for info on that and the general console release going forward.
