Puzzle adventure game Broken Age will most likely be seeing an Xbox One release, after receiving a rating from Europe’s self-regulatory authority PEGI, counterpart to the U.S.’s ESRB, yesterday.

While it’s not a 100-percent guarantee, a developer submitting for and receiving a rating is a big flag that the company will be bringing their game to a particular platform. The reason that the rating process can be such a good indicator is because it costs publishers anywhere from $300 to $1,000 per game rating for PEGI, one of larger costs of game development. Not many companies are going to put up that kind of money just to back down and lose it later.

The game saw its first console for PlayStation 4 and PS Vita release over two years ago.

Double Fine has been inconsistent with bringing its game to Xbox One. Many early of titles from the publisher made the trip to Microsoft’s platform, but some of its more recent like the remastered versions of Day Of The Tentacle and Grim Fandango haven’t.

Broken Age started its road to development as a massive Kickstarter success story in Feb. 2012, receiving $3.3 million from backers in a mere 30 days.
