At the time of writing this, the official Valheim website has stated that they have no plans on releasing Valheim on any of the console platforms, such as Xbox One, PS4, and Switch on their FAQs. The chances are pretty slim, especially as they are focusing on completing the game as it is an Early Access title. But they not ruling out the possibility of bringing Valheim to consoles in the future.

All we can do is hope that the high sales and great demand for it will put console release on their roadmap in the future.
