The free to play shooter will skip the console’s launch.
Sony Online Entertainment was originally going to bring two of its big MMO franchises – DC Universe Online and PlanetSide 2 – to the PlayStation 4 when the console launched this November. In conversation with Bloomberg, SOE head John Smedley has stated that while DC Universe Online launches on November 15th for the PS4 while PlanetSide 2 launches in early 2014.
“We’re helping the Sony PlayStation 4 launch on November 15 by releasing DC Universe Online at launch, and we’re following up that early next year with our next game, Planetside 2, on PS4.”
Disappointed, especially considering that DC Universe Online is rated significantly lower than PlanetSide 2? Regardless, there will be enough at launch to keep players occupied with Killzone: Shadow Fall, Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag which will feature exclusive content for the platform (along with PS3), Knack and much more.
The PlayStation 4 will launch on November 15th in North America and on November 29th in Europe. Stay tuned for more details.
