Free-to-play PS4 exclusive Deep Down has been in development for quite some time now and we haven’t heard anything regarding a release date or even the mention of a possible release window. But all bets are on a 2015 release.
Famitsu was the source of an interview conducted by Ayana Tsubaki in which Capcom producer Yoshinori Ono stated that Deep Down development in something called a “Trial and Error” stage but he also assured fans that the game’s release will not be affected.
“[The fact that development is taking time] doesn’t mean the game’s release status is in jeopardy, far from it. Rest assured, it will come out. Eventually, we’ll be able to find our groove and then from there, development will progress at breakneck speed.”
Since the game was shown in 2013 at the Tokyo Game Show some changes and additions have been made to the controls to simplify them along with some overall improvements.
After Capcom finished their work on Resident Evil 5 and 6, the team wanted to work on a new game. They wanted to create something on new hardware while using new technology. Different ideas were considered which in the end led them to Deep Down.
The decision to make Deep Down a free to play title was finalized after “internal surveying process.” However, Capcom’s Osaka team needed some assistance in that regard, so they coordinated with Capcom’s Tokyo branch who has some experience with free to play games.
Hopefully, we will soon hear something regarding Deep Down’s release date. We will let you know as soon as something is shared officially.
