The Chainsaw Incident To Run At 1080p/60fps On PS4, Dev Explains Why It Is Not Coming To Xbox One

"Microsoft has so many requirements to self-publish on the platform, including minimum marketing requirements"

GamingBolt recently spoke to Adam McClard, who is the CEO of Origo Games. They are currently working on The Chainsaw Incident, a new 2D fighter based around horror tropes. The game is currently a PlayStation exclusive with plans to launch it on the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita.

Surprisingly the game is not announced for the Xbox One and given the rise of Microsoft’s ID@Xbox popularity, we asked Adam why The Chainsaw Incident is not coming on the system.

“Currently it is too early to say, Microsoft has so many requirements to self-publish on the platform, including minimum marketing requirements. The game will be free to play, and we are not planning a boxed version unless it the funding goal is met on Kickstarter. Killer Instinct is a great game as well, and we felt it will be a dominant game on the platform for some time,” he explained to GamingBolt.

He was also able to confirm the resolution of The Chainsaw Incident on the PlayStation 4.

“1080p and 60fps for now. Wouldn’t it be amazing though if there was a 4K update down the road? You never know what could happen,” he said.

The Chainsaw Incident is due sometime this year. Stay tuned for more news and updates.
