Epic Games Explains Why Paragon Is Not Coming To The Xbox One
Full focus on PS4 and PC at this point, says Steve Superville, Creative Director.
Epic Games are currently working on a number of projects such as Fortnite and Unreal Engine 4. Among those projects is Paragon a free-to-play multiplayer online battle arena. The game is expected to launch on the PlayStation 4 and PC but there are currently no plans for a Xbox One version. However recent GDC documents indicate a possible Xbox One version may be in development. So is Paragon going to come to Xbox One in the future?
“What you’re referring to is a presentation that was specifically focused on the multiplatform Unreal Engine 4 and optimization,” Steve Superville, Creative Director said to GamingBolt. “We’re currently focused on the PlayStation 4 and PC version of Paragon.”
When asked whether there was a specific reason behind the lack of an Xbox One version to begin with, Steve stated that: “We’ve decided to focus our resources on PC and PlayStation 4 as we rolled out Paragon in Early Access and in open beta. Sony’s been a great partner, as well, and has been really open to things like cross-play, cross-progression, and such, which was really important to us from the start.”
Paragon is in early access at this point and is expected to fully launch sometime later this year.
