Dark Souls 2 Not Intended For PS4, Next Xbox, Focus Is On Current Gen

Dark Souls 2 Not Intended For PS4, Next Xbox, Focus Is On Current Gen

Dark Souls 2 is for current gen consoles and there’s no focus on bringing the game to PS4 and the next Xbox, as FromSoftware believes PS3 and Xbox 360 still have a lot of potential.

Said Dark Souls 2 co-director Yui Tanimura, in an interview with NowGamer:

We understand that next-gen is coming up, and it’d be a lie to say we didn’t consider it at all, but right now there’s no intent to have Dark Souls on next-gen at this point.

We feel the potential for current gen is still there and we want to deliver it to current gen consoles.

But the game’s spotting a brand new engine, so if it’s not optimized for next use, what are the benefits? Yui Tanimura had an answer for that:

One of the reasons we implemented a new engine was to cater for that drop in framerate in Dark Souls 1, so again for this title we’re hoping users don’t have to worry about that issue. We think the new engine will help to solve that.
