Haze development hurt by PS3 - Free Radical
Speaking to Develop magazine, Free Radical game maker Karl Hilton has revealed that Haze simply wasn't as good as it should have been because of a myriad of technical difficulties linked to the PS3 hardware.
"A lot of them were technical issues. The PS3 is a powerful machine but a difficult one to get the best out of. We spent more time trying get the game running properly and less time to design the game properly," Hilton offered in a candid chat with the publication.
The failure of much touted FPS Haze was one of the reasons behind Free Radical's later collapse, the veteran UK developer eventually saved by a Crytek take-over.
Hilton concludes on Free Radical's new position: "I don't think weve seen the best out of the PS3 at all, and I definitely think one of the best things about Crytek and the CryEngine is that were now in the best position to get the most out of the hardware."
