AC4 Black Flag Dev: Developing for Current Gen Was “Nightmarish”
Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag released this week on current generation consoles, which were reportedly a nightmare to work with.
In an Ask Me Anything on Reddit, Assassin’s Creed Community Developer Gabe Graziani stated that developing Black Flag for the PS4 and Xbox One went smoothly thanks to their similarities to the PC. The 360 and PS3, however, proved to be a greater challenge.
“Development on both [next gen] consoles was very smooth, since they are both very similar to PCs,” Graziani said. “Last generation was very difficult, even nightmarish.
“Both Xbox One and PS4 were very easy to deal with and the [first parties] were both there to help us out.”
Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag releases November 12 and November 19 for the PS4 and Xbox One, respectively.
I can’t help but grin when I hear that one of the best things about the new consoles is their similarities to the PC.
