Avalanche Studios announced theHunter: Call of the Wild is coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in 2017. It launched on PC earlier this year.

theHunter is set across two massive reserves in Germany and the Pacific Northwest. Expect to see deer, black bears and bison as well as loads of birds, critters and insects.
