Release Date


Although the teaser trailer doesn't give us anything specific regarding a release date, it does importantly reinforce the fact that we are getting Rust Console Edition in 2021.

With the COVID-19 pandemic impacting game development across the board, it's a welcome sight to see a game have its release window reaffirmed by the developer.

That being said, Rust Console Edition could still get pushed back to 2022 as no concrete release date has been given.

Although, you get the sense that this is being launched as a "first look confirmation" type of announcement as opposed to a "we're going to push it back in a month" misjudgement.
