Elite: Dangerous Port Likely Coming to PS4, Xbox One
Elite: Dangerous may make its way to Xbox One and PlayStation 4 after its initial PC launch.
That, at least, was something hinted at by David Braben, the head of Frontier Developments. Speaking in a recent interview, Braben said that while the company has no official plans for a console port of its in-the-works space flight sim, the possibility is far from out of the question.
“I don’t want to do something that constitutes an announcement, but we would be stupid not to support other platforms, including console,” stated Braben. That being the case, he affirmed that Frontier’s first priority is making the game excellent on PC. “We’re very focused on delivering a great PC game,” he said. “We will then do the game on Mac and during that time we will be looking at other platforms as well.”
The PC version of Elite: Dangerous is currently pegged to release sometime this year. The mentioned Mac edition is, in turn, schedule to come out three months after the PC game. Any console edition, in turn, would likely come in 2015.
