Just Dance 2023 skips older consoles

Ubisoft confirms a surprising fact regarding its release plans for the upcoming dance game Just Dance 2023 Edition which breaks with franchise tradition.

In a surprising move, Ubisoft has announced that the next Just dance 2023 will leave the PS4 and Xbox One behind, breaking a major franchise tradition. from Ubisoft just dance dancing game series has seen at least one new entry every year since the original game launched in 2009. 2022 will be no exception as it has been confirmed that Just Dance Edition 2023 will launch on November 22 on PC, PS5, Stadia, Switch, and Xbox Series X.


It is extremely surprising that Just dance 2023 drops the PS4 and Xbox One, as the series has traditionally released for older consoles years after they have become obsolete. As some remember, Ubisoft released just dance games on the Nintendo Wii years after that console was discontinued, with the latest just dance to the throwing game for the platform being Just Dance 2020. The PS5 and Xbox Series X have only been out for a few years at this point, and with the PS4 and Xbox One still heavily supported, it’s odd that Just dance 2023 skips these consoles entirely.

Although the PS5 and Xbox Series X consoles are almost 2 years old at this point, they are still incredibly hard to find. Scalpers, the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, and a host of other issues have made getting your hands on a next-gen console without paying inflated scalping prices a serious ordeal. Given that, you’d think it would make a lot more sense for Ubisoft to release Just dance 2023 as a cross-gen title and maximizing the number of households that can access the game, but it’s choosing not to for some reason.

One would think that Ubisoft doing Just Dance Edition 2023 Only available for PS5 and Xbox Series X and not PS4 or Xbox One would mean there’s some sort of technical reason behind the decision. Maybe there is something with Just dance 2023 that older consoles just can’t handle. But that doesn’t seem to be the case either. After all, Just dance 2023 comes out for the Nintendo Switch, which is comparable if not weaker than the PS4 and Xbox One.

Whatever the reason Ubisoft has Just dance 2023 to focus only on the latest video game consoles is a surprising decision to say the least. Fans will know if it was the right decision or not when Just dance 2023 launches for select platforms later this year.

Just dance 2023 launches November 22 on PC, PS5, Stadia, Switch, and Xbox Series X.
