The developer confirmed the news via a blog post on the EU PS Blog. The new versions will feature all the previously added areas and updates from the PC version.

“it’s a game that’s meant to be played alone, in the darkest room (or alley, or barn, or deep, dank forest) you can find. On PS4, this means you can turn off the lights, crank that sound system and let the dread wash over you. If you’re extra brave, you can play the game on your Vita – somewhere scary, where no one will find you, and with a fat pair of headphones, of course,” said Rivers.

“Home is a game that depends on the players who play it. It doesn’t just talk to you; you’re part of the conversation. So the most exciting thing about seeing the game arrive on PS4 and PS Vita is going to be reading and hearing the myriad new stories, theories and comments that players will continue to contribute to the discussion surrounding the game. I hope you’re as excited as I am to see Home in the hands of a whole new audience; I can’t wait for you to play it!”

Home is a murder mystery with a twist in which the player decides what ultimately happens. Previously the title came out on PC and mobile platforms after.
