Full focus on PS4 and PC at this point, says Steve Superville, Creative Director.
Not trying to be selfish becauae I know this genre has its big following, but I would hope Epic games made something else. Something like Gears of War
It gets pretty intense specially with the veticality thats uniquee to this game
I'm sure that will happen in the future. A game similar to Gears but I would like for them to innovate it more. That would be awesome. They should make a PC game like that.
They don't own the IP sold it for 80 million to MS a few years back. @ShadowKnight my comment was at XiKurapikaKurta
I said something similar obviously not gears of war lol. Like a 3rd person action game.
I don't think they'll making anything of that caliber again anytime soon. They were overtaken by new management and fully switched to F2P models and shorter, cheaper games. This is actually the reason Epic's Gears of war 4 concept was halted and MS decided to buy it before it disappeared.
Anything possible. We shall see in time.
They already have a current Unreal Tournament out there. I highly recommend downloading it. Totally free.
Please read the full message before commenting. Its good that it isnt going to xbox right now as the servers are having issues with pc and ps4 players. Lots of lag right now. Hopefully once its fixed it becomes available on xbox as theres more people to play with = shorte queues
I haven't had lag either
This reminds me of the dumb 'I LIKE that I have to pay to play online' nonsense xbox fans (and more recently sony fans) used to say. Such a ridiculous thing to say.
"I like to pay for online." Or "I will never ever pay for online...ever." Both were hilarious.
I was actually really excited for this but o boy is it brutally boring lol the beta/alpha thing whatever it was was eh at the most. Me and my buddy played it and literally half hour in we were like WTF is this lol. Trust me guys its not what we all expected.
Bullshit... I and my friends have switch from smite to paragon. It`s a great moba with gorgeus graphics.. The only negative from my side it´s lack a little on avaible heroes right now
That's okay they can keep the game and their whinny CEO , disappear for all I care .
*hands you a tissue*
No tears shed beside if the industry is lucky Tencent will have bought the remain 51% and taken them full mobile .
/plays you the worlds smallest violin But in all seriousness, I hope you guys eventually get this game soon.
I think everyone would prefer you to disappear castillo.
"Sony paid more money"
It's very simple why it's only coming to ps4. $$$$$$$$
I honestly don't think this is a game Sony would be willing to spend money on to keep exclusive... Then again, Somy are doing well enough that then may be able to splurge their money a bit.
Splurge it on Silent Hills then :'(
Not necessarily although it is possible. For this game to go to the PS4 and PC it will most likely use open API's like Vulkan rather than DirectX which is Microsoft proprietary and effectively locks developers to Microsoft platforms. I am aware that a developer can develop games that can be ported between the two API's but this still requires some effort and cost on the part of the developer. Using an open API that is common across your target platforms (ie. PS4 and PC) makes financial sense.
Don't see your point. Vulkan works on XBoxOne. Also, it uses Unreal 4 engine. Developers don't have to worry about the API at all. That's part of what the engine is for.
Yes the writing is on the wall.
What are you talking about? Sure your reply wasn't meant for someone else?
I dont like mobas but not gonna lie paragon is pretty damn dope...and it's a beautiful game
Honestly, I never knew this game wasn't coming out to the Xbox. Since it was Epic, I just assumed it would because they always had a good relationship with Xbox.
After reading this article i think the headline is a bit misleading. They have not ruled out coming to xbox one at all, they state that they are focusing on ps4 and pc just now, sony have been great partners ... basically in a nut shell, sony offered money for advertisement rights and gave them a bit more money, within a year they will either say they are considering an xbox one version or bring it out.
The game is brutally boring because is not coming on Xbox One. Yet, if they announce tomorrow that is coming to xbox One, some here would be saying : nice, wow, awesome game. Trash talking the game because is not coming to your console will not make the game fail as you would like.
Saying it on a gaming site can confuse some people . now on a more social site , amongst friends does have a better chance to sway people and maybe cause a ripple effect to where sales are prevented .
No dude the game is JUST boring, you and your conspiracy theory lol
Everyone is making this kind of game all of a sudden. Im already burned of it.
Isn't that what some do when a game isn't coming to their console of choice though
Just a wise business decision by Epic since the PS4 has a larger install base. It will come out on Xbox One eventually I guess.
Meh not even a game I'm interested in.
Wouldn't be surprised. The plan was to cross play and at the time, MS had a strict policy. Throw in a little sony money and the fact of the bigger install base gives you enough reason to choose ps4/pc first.
& epic wonders why they're going to become the next thq
I didnt realise thq had a game enginr that a vast majority of developers use.
Do not concern oneself. I'll tell you what you miss.
It's just a switcheroo. Each generation you see developers and publishers do this. Epic was mighty last gen with UE and Gears. Now that they no longer have Gears and developers are using other engines, Epic needs money and support. Overwatch is out and is currently overshadowing everything, including Bloodborn which I play daily. Epic isn't the powerhouse they used to be without MS funding them. Last gen half the games made were with UE3, don't see that as much nowadays. Good luck Epic.
Yet another title not releasing on xbone lol. Why? Because Its just not worth it.
Is that the reason daybreak, Ready at dawn, Evolution Studios and supermassive games, once all Sony exclusive, now go multiplat? Guess its not worth it.
@elektranine So losing 1.party devs is better?
Its OK Epic, I wasnt gonna buy Paragon anyway....haha.
you don't need to buy it... It's going to be Free 2 play.
So WHY? I mean he never really asked why not Xbox and never got a true answer of why not Xbox. All he asked was there ever and the guy basically said no. That's not WHY...
they basically gave no reason, since xbox allows cross play now too. they just focused on the console that has sold more, so just say that...
I see a lot of Sony hating on here, but did anyone stop to consider that may be the dev has ruled out a port to XBox for now because if they did, then maybe, they may of been forced to push it through the MS store, rather than steam, which we all know has the larger user base for PC owners and thus would of generated them less revenue back in return. But that's my take on it. Not Sony's fault or MS. Just the devs choice
"then maybe, they may of been forced to push it through the MS store" Didn't Tomb Raider release on both steam and WS? I mean if Microsoft forced them to exclusively release the game on Windows store to achieve crossplatform play then I could understand the situation. But there's no such requirements for cross platform play on Microsofts side of the fence.
But when xbox scorpio comes out and full windows 10 integration is achieved between the two platforms, wont it then be possible to play almost all games across both platforms?
Xbox fans are being thrown under the bus this gen.
