Dark Souls II Could Potentially Come To Xbox One And PS4


Dark Souls II isn’t on next-gen systems, but that doesn’t mean it couldn’t eventually make its way onto Xbox One and PlayStation 4. That said, developer From Software aren’t willing to commit to that happening… yet.


In an interview with Edge magazine, From Software’s Yui Tanimura—who is co-directing Dark Souls II—stated regarding the two new platforms: “We have not put any thought into this yet, so I unfortunately can’t answer at this point.”


Speaking to why From developed Dark Souls II for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, Tanimura shared: “At the start of development, we felt that there was still a lot of potential that remained unused in Dark Souls.”


“I hope this can be seen with the demos and footage that we have released. Our intention was to capitalise on the total potential of [seventh-generation] consoles and deliver the game to fans as soon as possible.”


Dark Souls II will be available in March for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, with a PC release to follow soon after.
