Elder Scrolls Online Dev Open To Next-Gen Console Port
Elder Scrolls Online is heading for a 2013 PC release, but that doesn’t necessarily mean you won’t see it on PS4 or Xbox 720. Speaking with GamesIndustry, developer ZeniMax Online has stated its interest in next-gen hardware.
Head of ZeniMax Online Studios Matt Firor explained, “There are a lot of rumors swirling around the next-gen coming back together with PCs. I haven’t seen any of that, but I read all the rumor sites just like everyone else.”
“It seems like things are going back to a more standard platform. That being said, we haven’t thought about it heavily right now.”
“The worst thing you can do is worry about new platforms while in development. We want to do what we’re doing right now and then look around for further opportunities. Certainly we’re open to new opportunities.”
Firor also explained that current technology is an issue when trying to make MMO models fit consoles, stating that “Technology has not been there.”
But the technology will be there when next-gen consoles launch, so don’t rule out Elder Scrolls Online for consoles just yet.
