The Current Generation of Consoles Will Last Longer Than The Previous, Says Defiance Dev

"I believe the current console generation will last longer than the previous, which is great for development," says Matt Pettit.

Is the current generation of consoles on its way out? You would think that we have a few more years before successors for either the PS4 or Xbox One are introduced, in spite of Nintendo’s successful launch of the Nintendo Switch last year- but rumors regarding the next Xbox and PlayStation have already started to percolate.

Speaking to GamingBolt, Matt Pettit, Producer of Defiance 2050, said that he hopes that the current generation of consoles sticks around for a bit longer before their successors are introduced, in part so that the current machines can be properly leveraged to their fullest potential first.

“My biggest hope for the current generation of consoles is for it to last longer in order to take full advantage of the processing power available, and my expectation from the next generation is to innovate,” he said. “To create a gap between what is currently available with the Xbox One X, technology in the gaming space would have to innovate in order to offer anything that isn’t just a small technical increase. Due to that, I believe the current console generation will last longer than the previous, which is great for development.”

This is something I myself agree with- how would new these consoles are, I want to see a few more years of developers extracting every last bit of their power first before we move on to successors. And given how sophisticated PS4 Pro and Xbox One X are right now anyway… how meaningful can a PS5 or Xbox Two be in terms of improvements anyway?

Stay tuned for our full interview with Matt Pettit in the coming days.
