From Software hasn't thought about bringing Dark Souls II to next-gen yet
Dark Souls developer From Software has revealed that they really haven't thought about bringing this year's sequel to next-gen consoles.
Not to say that it's not a possibility. Co-director on Dark Souls II Yiu Tanimura revealed that the development has been led on PC this time to ensure the quality of the PC version and they really believed that they could wring much more out of the Xbox 360 and PS3 before moving on to their successors.
“At the start of development,” he explained, “we felt that there was still a lot of potential that remained unused in Dark Souls. I hope this can be seen with the demos and footage that we have released. Our intention was to capitalise on the total potential of [seventh-generation] consoles and deliver the game to fans as soon as possible.”
Dark Souls II is due out on Xbox 360 and PS3 March the 11th in North America and March 14th in Europe. The PC version will follow soon after.
