S-E reveals codename "Rapture"; MMORPG

Several new images and information from Taku Murata's session at this year's GDC have appeared online, revealing the name of Square Enix's next generation MMORPG: codename "Rapture". Square Enix has already revealed the MMORPG is under development using Crystal Tools.

We have already learned Square Enix's engine supports the PlayStation 3, Xbox360, PC and the Wii in a limited way. This means the new MMORPG will probably be released for all three next generation consoles.

Because if I remember correctly, MS doesn't want any cross-platform play with the ps3 or the wii. I could be wrong though

FFXI was on PC Xbox and ps2 and everyone got along fine. I think they could get it to work on all systems.

FF XI was on pc ps2 and 360.

The problem lies in the fact that the 360 wasn't in direct competition with the ps2. Also, the 360 got the game much later than the ps2 and pc.

Microsoft has stated that they don't want cross platforming with the ps3. And that is probably because ps3 is their direct competition

Unlikely ! Why make a game that has to run on Wii? I'm betting PS3, maybe XB and PC too.

This game will either be exclusive or multiplatform (pc, ps3, xbox360 or any combination of the 3). If it is multiplatform, it will not be able to be implemented on the Wii due to technical constraints. Unless they "dumb down" the game to the Wii's level, I don't see them bringing it to the Wii.

However, they may release different versions of the game, one for the high-definition platforms (ps3, xbox360, pc) and one for the wii.

Who knows though, only time will tell.

My guess though, either Playstation 3 exclusive (since they've had so much work done on the Playstation 3 platform already with this engine), or multiplatform between PC, PS3, XBOX 360 (or any combination of the three).

I think it will probably be a multiplatformer, which explains their emphasis on the Crystal Tools as a cross platform engine. If they can achieve cross platform gameplay for the MMORPG, it will be quite a feat.

Wii will only downgrade this game.

I hope they don't make it for wii.

bootsielon3498d ago

You mean PS3, 360 and PC, because there are no other truly next-gen consoles

If that's your view, who am I to change it? Yet I disagree. A minor update is still a update.
