John Smedley: We Can’t Wait To Make Xbox One Games
‘We’re beyond excited.’
With the shocking news that Sony had sold off one of its studios, Sony Online Entertainment, to Columbus Nova, and that the studio will now be making all of its games available on multiple platforms, there are, of course, a few people wondering what SOE (now known as Daybreak Game Company) might think about approaching Xbox One game development.
In the words of their president John Smedley – they are ‘beyond excited.’ “Can’t wait to make Xbox One games!” Smedley said, before adding, “We’re beyond excited!” The multiple exclamation points should make it clear that he is, in fact, pretty excited at the prospect of making Xbox One video games.
Whether these just include future games from them going forward, such as H1Z1 or Planetside 2, or whether this means that existing games, such as DC Universe Online, may also be coming to Xbox eventually, remains to be seen. Whatever happens, though, we will keep you posted.
