Capcom won't be abandoning development on PS3 and Xbox 360 just yet
Capcom has been impressed by the sales of the Xbox One and PS4 but they're not ready to stop making games for the previous generation just yet.
Katsuhiko Ichii, Capcom's director and executive corporate office for their consumer games business has explained that the Panta Rhei engine is the first step in their next-gen plan but they'll keep making games for the PS3 and Xbox 360 for now.
Ichii-san wrote in a new Q&A, "Past experience shows that there is a set transition period before the market makes the switch to next-gen consoles. In light of this fact, we definitely intend to continue releasing titles for the consoles already out on the market."
|He added teasing some new next-gen games, "The first thing we've done is made Panta Rhei, a game development engine for next-gen consoles, ready for practical use. We're now developing Deep Down for PlayStation 4, which will be the first title made with this engine."
