As you may know, Bethesda is working on an Elder Scrolls Online game. OXM recently spoke with Bethesda’s Vice-President Peter Hines, who had several things to say about the latest generation of consoles and the trouble the company encountered while working across multiple platforms.
When asked about developing for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC/Mac, Hines had the following to say:
They don’t all play with each other. PC and Mac play together, but Xbox One is its own thing and PS4 is its own thing. The whole cross-platform thing is just a nightmare.
He also praised the consoles, likening them to “high-end PCs, the way they’re architectured,” and noted, “they’re much easier to develop for.”
It seems that at least one developer is happy to be working on the newest consoles. Are you excited for the next generation? How about playing Elder Scrolls Online?
