Project Eternity ‘no plans for console or tablet ports’, says Obsidian
Project Eternity developer Obsidian Entertainment has stated that it has no plans to bring its successful Kickstarter title to consoles or tablets.
In an interview with GI.biz, Obsidian CEO Feargus Urquhart explained that console and tablet ports are not on the studio’s stretch goal list.
“No they’re not,” he confirmed, “It’s a game that goes back to the roots of the great RPG games of the past and the focus of those was keyboard and mouse. Not that console games aren’t great; they’re just different.”
“There’s a big difference between Baldur’s Gate: Dark Alliance [for consoles] and Baldur’s Gate II [for PC]. And we don’t want to create some camel in the middle to try to straddle a line. It’s do one thing or another, and we’re going to try to do the PC and do that right,” he concluded.
