The Ready at Dawn Studios CCO has expressed interest in the Switch and the team has expressed interest in the Switch, two consoles that will hopefully represent some of the best technology currently available for video games. Ready at Dawn is the developer for The Order: 1886 which came out in 2015.
The information came from an interview between Ready at Dawn’s CCO and GamesIndustry, a business website.
Since The Order: 1886’s somewhat lackluster reception (mainly due to its lack of real gameplay compared to cutscenes), Ready At Dawn Studios has released Deformers, a physics-based arena-brawler game for multiplayer. However, they may soon go back to Triple-A development.
Ready At Dawn’s CCO Ru Weerasuriya has expressed interest in the Nintendo Switch and the Xbox One Scorpio, particularly in their various hardware refreshes. With the greater technology available in both consoles, any new Triple-A game that Ready at Dawn puts out will likely look even better than The Order: 1886 did, and that game looked utterly amazing both in gameplay and in cutscenes.
Weerasuriya has also brought forward the question of how games will evolve over the next few generations; for instance, will consoles even still be needed in the near future, or will the consoles eventually fade away in favor of entirely Cloud-based gaming?
Ready at Dawn Studios has since said that they were working on another Triple A title (it might even be a sequel to The Order: 1886), and considering what they’ve said about all of the premium Sony and Microsoft consoles, along with the Nintendo Switch, having a lot of potential, it may be their best yet.
In the meantime, we’ll have to wait until Ready at Dawn actually announces that they’re working on another Triple-A game before we can really get excited, or at least hopeful, that the game will be better than The Order: 1886.
Deformers, their most recent work, is available for Xbox One, Playstation 4, and PC.
