One of the founders Devolver Digital, a boutique publisher behind games such as Hotline Miami and Genital Jousting, eager to see Sony and Microsoft unveiled their next-generation platform.
However, Graeme Struthers who has been with the company since he founded it in 2009, said he was excited about the launch of the PlayStation and Xbox Project 5 Scarlett in 2020 in part because the systems are expected to appeal to all small and large developers.
However, Struthers indicate that the PS3 / Xbox 360 generation was not the most inviting for indie developers.
“This is great,” said Struthers of PS5 and the impending release of the next Xbox. “The previous generation, which we will come to an end, is the one to companies such as ourselves – we allowed Earlier it was quite difficult to be on PS3 and Xbox 360. For the next-gen, we, back in the beginning, given the opportunity just like everyone else, which is great. “
While Struthers is excited about the potential for PS5 and next Xbox game will grow the category as a whole, the executive observed that the new console seems to be recurring in nature is not dramatically different versions or upgraded from their predecessors.
But he said, “I think it is ever more difficult to tell the difference between a new console but also cool that they both come with a new generation of consoles because it means they will invest more money in this space, which will create more users.” He further added “It’s good for everyone. And to have Nintendo in good, vibrant health as well, you have three consoles and Apple Arcade platform to think and Steam and Epic.”
Devolver release several games on the console, but the company has always been and continues to be the first PC and PC-focused publisher.
Struthers is not the first gaming industry executive who spoke this way about the next generation of consoles. Atsushi Inaba, head of Bayonetta developer Platinum Games, said in an earlier interview that PS5 and Scarlett project is “more of the same.”
Sony recently officially confirmed that the new console will be called PlayStation 5. The company also began to discuss plans for the next generation of controllers.
Microsoft, on the other hand, does not share much about the new Xbox. the console continues to be known as Project Scarlett. What we do know, however, is that it will work with Xbox One and Xbox One controller you may already have, while support backwards compatibility also extends to the Xbox 360 and original Xbox games. Therefore, Microsoft will release Halo Infinite as a launch title for the new console.
One of the biggest upcoming releases Devolver This is strange, weird, and wonderful looks a bit-battle royale game Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout for PC and PS4 are suppose to start in 2020.
