‘We are actively working with Sony to make that experience as exceptional as possible,’ says Alex Preece.
Bulkhead Interactive’s Battalion 1944 may use DirectX 12 on the Xbox One, according to the game’s communications manager, Alex Preece. When asked whether players can expect a DX12 version of the game on the PC and Xbox One, Alex stated that: “We’re totally looking into these features and seeing how we can utilise them in our development pipeline or not. We have a great relationship with Microsoft devs so we’ll see what we can do!”
It will be interesting to see whether the Xbox One version will use a DX12 build but given the console already has a game or two which utilizes the latest API, a DX12 version of Battalion 1944 might be on the cards after all.
Furthermore, when we asked him about their opinion on the rumored PS4K NEO, he stated that he cannot comment on rumors but they assured that Battalion 1944 will be great experience for PS4 users. “Battalion will be a great experience for PlayStation users and we are actively working with Sony to make that experience as exceptional as possible,” he added.
Battalion 1944 is due this year for the PS4, Xbox One and PC.
