What are you asking?

We won't know if there will be a console announcement until until we learn how successful D:OS:EE was on consoles regarding sales. If it did well, then we'll likely get an announcement that D:OS 2 will be on consoles. If it does poorly, we likely won't get that announcement ever.

Divinity Original Sin 2 is scheduled to be released December 2016. Any potential console ports won't be decided/announced in the near future.

My understanding is that Larian plans to design D:OS2 with controller support, but only with PC in mind at this stage. They have grand ideas for D:OS2 (including better modding) and they aren't sure if consoles will be able to be able to meet the needs of the game.

So if they add console versions, it will probably be late in the process.

DOS2 is made with the same Editor (with improvement) that EE was made off. That means that it support controlers and everything. It also means that if Swen feels like doing DOS2 for consoles, all the structure will already be in place.
Swen told everyone that he'll wait to see if EE is doing good and see after.

You should have a read at this in fact:

I love the console version of D:OS1. If Larian opened up a Kickstarter for a console version of D:OS2, I'd happily contribute.

When they announced divinity I came here asking for a console versions and I got bashed for it, yet it released on console later and it's my favourite Xbox game so far.

Divinity 2 will come to consoles, I bet. I just hope this time they advertise the game properly
