The PC version is almost like a next-gen version,” Cox said. “The limitations of the [Xbox 360 and PS3]…we can push that back. We designed the game engine for next-gen in mind. We knew that this would be the last game we did on current-gen, so in many ways the PC version is almost like a test run for us.
Yesterday, Lords of Shadow 2 developer Mercury Steam revealed that it is currently working on a new game for the next-gen. The new project is not related to Castlevania but instead Cox hinted about a possible new Contra title. Though nothing is confirmed at this point. What is confirmed is that the title will not release for the Wii U.
