Why Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 isn't on next generation hardware

You're likely more than aware right now that plenty of the big name titles coming to Xbox 360 from this point - Watch Dogs, Battlefield 4, Assassins Creed 4 and Call of Duty Ghosts to name a few - are launching on both the older Xbox 360 and the shiny new Xbox One consoles. The sequel to Castlevania: Lords of Shadow however is one example of a game bucking that trend.

The story is too old to be commented.

Because more people have current hardware.

I don't think it's because of that. When he says, that they were too far in development, that's most likely true. Next-gen wasn't on their radar back then.

Anyways, the future of the other consoles are uncertain at this point. I doubt it's another Wii U situation, but the launch lineup of games aren't exactly the best.

Wait a year or two, then the games will come.

Yes, wait a year or two, You mean like Wii u? mario 3d, Donkey Kong, smash bros. mario kart, yeah very stupid comment, the wii u can not have the wait a year or two situation either huh? boy fansboys will be fanboys! personally I want all three systems to succeed, and You do not know if the ps4 or the x box one won't sell like the wii u, they may sell worse! Not up or biased an boys to decide, I'll wait and see what happens for myself!

@thomasmiller Rabid dogs will always be just that, i guess. No doubt MS and Sony will get plenty of support, because that's just a given.

Launch games are just not that great, and anyone can spin that as much as they want. Once we go into the next year, and the year after that, the better games will start releasing from 1st AND 3rd party.

Well it started on this generation & will end on this generation. That's totally reasonable. Thing is the current generation will still be getting big games for a awhile. This generation is still capable of making great games. There isn't as big a difference between current gen & next gen. Both have HD graphics for example. Anyways it sucks I have to wait till February to play this. I was expecting it this year. It looks amazing. Even if I have an Xbox one next February which I plan on, I will still get this game. Cmon you play as Dracula. That's pretty wicked.

I kind of bored of this articles stating why this title or this other is not on the next gen, whats the point if you are going to stick with this gen for a while, it doesn´t matter is go to the next gen, and i as a day 1 next gen adopter i don't care either is a title will not be on next gen, i care for the ones that will be in the next gen, i will keep my PS3 for current gen titles, no point at all

I actually decided this would be one of the few games I would get for my PC, but its strange why they can't just port the pc version over to the PS4 and XB-One.

Roccetarius1767d ago (Edited 1767d ago )

Sadly, the PC version is delayed i think. At least i heard so earlier, but i'll get that version anyways.

I'm selling my 360 and ps3 when the new systems come out, so I guess I won't be playing this one
