CCP Plans For Dust 514 To Outlive PS3
CCP has a long term plan for Dust 514, the upcoming console-based F2P shooter set in the Eve Online universe, and it means the game will have a life beyond Playstation 3. “We’ve got a five year road map,” Executive Producer Jonathan Lander said, “with a whole load of things we’d love to put into Dust.”
So what does this mean? That Sony will continue to support PS3 well into the PS4 era? Well, duh, we know they’re doing that. But it also means the game will have a life that extends to other media. “We’re working really, really hard,” Lander said “with Sony right now on PlayStation 3 and just shipping the game on PlayStation 3, that’s where 100 per cent of our focus is. But our intention is this game will continue to run and operate for many, many years.”
He also said that “the whole way that we’re doing our development process is so that we can push out expansions on a regular basis. We’re not going to ship a unit and then in six months it’s off the shelves and people have stopped playing it.” Translation: Expect the game to be available on PS4.
