Capcom’s recent financial report indicates Deep Down to be in development for “next generation consoles”.
Capcom had revealed its upcoming action RPG Deep Down as far back as the PlayStation 4’s initial reveal. It only recently showcased a real-time gameplay trailer for the same at a Sony presser but is it possible that this futuristic, online-capable RPG may be heading to the Xbox One as well later on?
According to Capcom’s 2013 financial report for the fiscal year ending March 31st 2013, there was a statement where the company talked about “moving forward with the development of new title ‘deep down’ for next-generation consoles, representing the culmination of Capcom technology and our next leap forward”.
It also stated that the company was “currently developing ‘deep down’, which integrates the latest state-of-the-art technology for next-generation non-portable consoles such as the soon-to-be-released PlayStation 4” and while when mentioning its new Panta Rhei engine, stated that, “The counterpart in collaboration for the ‘Panta Rhei’ game engine is the title ‘deep down’ for next-generation consoles. We are pushing ahead with development in tandem with the title development team.”
It doesn’t name the Xbox One explicitly but there’s no denying the significance of a line like “next generation consoles” over simply naming the PS4 alone. As of now, no release date has been announced for Deep Down.
