EverQuest Next not going down PS4 path just yet, says SOE

EverQuest Next developer Sony Online Entertainment has stressed that while it is laser-focused on bringing the game to PC in the first instance that its experience with PS4 doesn’t rule out the possibility of a console port down the line.

Speaking with Eurogamer, producer David Georgeson said, “We’re very serious about this being a PC-orientated launch. Now, you’re dumb not to explore other options with a business of this type, but we’re very serious about developing for the PC.

“You know the company knows a lot about the PlayStation 4 – look at DC Universe Online and Planetside 2 – so we have a lot of people becoming extraordinarily knowledgeable with that box. We’re not adverse to the idea, but we’re not going down that path yet.”

EverQuest Next was announced at SOE Live earlier this month. You can check out our full report on the game and its flood of details here.
