Dark Souls 2 director promises “more care” will be put into PC version this time out

Thursday, 11th April 2013 22:25 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

Dark Souls 2 director Yui Tanimura has promised the team will “put more priority” on the PC version of the game, admitting that its last PC outing was “sort of half-assed.”

Speaking with Shack, Tanimura said at the time, the team was having a “tough time” with PC development as it was used to working in consoles. The result, after a successful petition saw the game released on the platform, was a game which was “not very well done.”

“We will definitely put more priority on the PC,” said Tanimura. “Last time, we started working on PC after the console version was complete. This time, because we are considering the PC from the beginning, you can be sure there will be more care put into PC development.”

PC players won’t have to wait months for Dark Souls 2 to be released this time out, as the game will see a simultaneous release on all platforms.

Dark Souls 2 is expected on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 in late 2013 or early 2014.

    Go fuck youself with your DS2 and your fail PC port. We want good consoles versions with normal support and optimization. We don’t want another PC port wth more care and fail sales
    And another crap news

    The way Yui Tanimura said that statement suggests that it will be a console port… Because he would have said: ” We *are* putting more priority in the PC”…Not We *Will*…..

    @1 Troll elsewhere. This is great news, at least they are talking about it. Dark Souls on the PC was the best version by far, I expect it to be the same here.

    This is great news! It was kinda sad that the pc fans had to suffer through a lame port (even though most problems were patched out). I hope the pc version gets a collectors edition!!!!

    @1 I think you are a butthurt fanboy coz they released Dark Souls on PC. I have seen trolls like you everywhere in the net. its a very well done great game. PS3,Xbox,PC,Wii ,Everyone deserve to play it.

    @3 lots of games are console ports these days. but i get a feeling it will be change in the nextgen. we’ll know soon enough :)atleast its good to hear that they are putting some priority for PC version.

    @7: You can’t expect everyone to know. After all, we get new users from time to time. That’s the problem though. VG247 might have a better chance of attracting more intelligent people, if we would get rid of the trolls, instead of having to ignore them all the time.

    It’s very unhealthy for the community and I wish we would have some kind of options to avoid the spam.

    Why loki is still here boggles my mind though. This guy distributes absolutely nothing. Not even once does he say anything other than how PC games suck.
