Gearbox Studios has “a few things” in development for next generation consoles, says Randy Pitchford. He’s rather excited about them too.
In a recent interview Pichford said, “We’ve got a few things going on right now that we haven’t talked about but that’ll appear later.
“I’m always excited by movement forward,” he continued. “Some of that comes from iteration with our software, and some of it comes from iteration with hardware, and some of it comes from invention… each new step kind of gives us new tools and new capabilities that always makes the entertainment better, if we use it right.
“More power is always better. There’s always things we can do that we cannot do today that we can do with more power. So, that’s always true.”
Pichford also had this amusing thing to say about the future of motion controls. “Who knows what that is?,” he said. “I don’t really care.”
Except he does! Because he added, “There are so many steps between now and the holodeck, or between now and The Matrix,” he said, “and any number of those steps could be tested or introduced either as gimmicks or as potentials to new standards in any given hardware attempts.
“Those are always exciting.”
