Frictional Games’ Thomas Grip on SOMA’s PS4 exclusivity and a potential Xbox One version.
Frictional Games’ upcoming survival horror game SOMA is a console exclusive for the PlayStation 4. However it seems like that it may turn out into a timed console exclusive as Frictional Games’ Thomas Grip revealed to GamingBolt the reasons behind the current PS4 exclusivity and the lack of Xbox One version.
“The reason is rather simple: we simply do not have the resources to develop for both. We have never done a game for console before, so it felt like a too big of a risk to support both. Why Sony? Because we reached out to them first and they were really quick to respond and easy to deal with, so we decided to go with them,” Thomas said to GamingBolt.
However the game may come to the Xbox One after the initial launch. “An Xbox One version after release is very much a possibility though.” SOMA is currently due for the PlayStation 4, Windows and Linux platforms in 2015.
