Although originally announced to be released on PlayStation 4 by late 2013, Planetside 2 has been funneled down to “early 2014.” It was not a launch title for PlayStation 4, but seeing how PlayStation 4 titles are being delayed once in a while it surely is unsettling.
Sony Online Entertainment’s president, John Smedley was talking to Bloomberg West when he made the news public.
“We’re actually helping the Sony PlayStation 4 launch on November 15 by having our free-to-play game DC Universe Online actually come to the PlayStation 4 for its launch. And we’re going to be following up that in early next year with our next game, PlanetSide 2, for the PS4,” Smedley said.
Originally released to Microsoft Windows back in November 2012, Planetside 2 has been under development for being ported to PlayStation 4 since a couple of months. The next generation version was announced in early June.
Planetside 2 is a free-to-play MMOFPS that is based in a fictional futuristic world where you join forces with three factions in order to gain control over the planet Auraxis.
Developer SCE believes that “the game literally has to be the best.” Smedley added “If you want people to pay for it, you better give them something amazing, because they can play for free as much as they want. So you have to do something amazing to earn their money.”
