Dev Explains Why SNOW Is A PS4 Console Exclusive And Why It’s Not Launching On Xbox One For Now
Poppermost Games reveals that they have a timed exclusivity deal with Sony.
Poppermost’s SNOW is shaping up to be fantastic free ski video game if the recent open beta is anything to go by. The game is currently available to play in an Early Access format on Steam but other than that the developers are also working on a PlayStation 4 version. GamingBolt recently spoke to to Poppermost Games and asked them whether there are any plans to release an Xbox One version in the future or for that matter why isn’t an Xbox One version considered for now.
“We currently have an exclusivity deal with Sony and will investigate a potential release on X1 once this exclusive period is over,” an executive from Poppermost Games said to GamingBolt. So it seems that the game may release on the Xbox One but as of right now there is nothing planned.
The developer also revealed that they don’t have the resources to work on an Xbox One version. “The reason why we haven’t looked into an X1 releasesis because of bandwidth reasons. We are only ten people working on SNOW and need to focus on fewer platforms as we still developing new features and adding content.”
SNOW is due sometime later this year for the PS4 and PC. Stay tuned for more news and updates.
