Darksiders 2 Lead Designer: “More Than Enough Life in Current-Gen Consoles”
Next generation this, next generation that. Remember the times when consoles updated every decade or so (or wait, were those PCs)? Regardless, everyone’s got an opinion on the next wave of consoles.
In an interview with BrutalGamer, Darksiders 2 lead designer Haydn Dalton instead shared his thoughts on the current generation, saying, “I think there’s more than enough life in the current-gen consoles. [Developers] are really harnessing the technology and pushing it further each year.
“The idea of a new platform is always exciting for a developer, but it begins the cycle of learning new tech, finding its strengths and shortcomings, developing your tool sets and where and how you can get the best out the system, for the type of game you’re developing. Not to mention releasing something to a developing market, which is a whole different issue.”
So while it will truly come – change is inevitable after all – just know that it may not usher in a new golden age as quickly as one would like.
