Do you remember when Sony Online Entertainment announced a PlayStation 4 version of PlanetSide 2? Well, it’s still coming. During an exclusive stream event on Twitch.TV SOE demonstrated the PlayStation 4 version of the critically acclaimed free-to-play shorter before following up today with an interview with EuroGamer.
Creative Director Matthew Higby spoke in detail about the PlayStation 4 launch but was sadly unable to provide any information pertaining to its release. When questioned about a potential release date and the delays surrounding the PS4 version he said:
[quote cite=”Matthew Higby, Creative Director “]I wish I knew. I know a target, but I don’t know the exact day. The reason is, as much as it sounds like we’re blowing smoke, we’re working hard to release a game that feels like a full-on console experience and not just a port. So it’s taken us quite a long time to re-jigger our user interface and our controls. There’s a lot that needs to get done. [/quote]
However, when discussing a potential open beta phase, he had some more positive information to share:
[quote cite=”Matthew Higby, Creative Director “]Right now our intention is for a beta at that time. We will have some more info about those plans at the PlayStation Experience event on 6th and 7th December.[/quote]
He also went on to explain possible changes to the algorithm that controls the technology relating to the number of players on a single server but reassured players that it’s unlikely to impact them on any noticeable level.
