Roberto Marchesi, the art director for Hitman: Absolution, has revealed that the development for the upcoming stealth action game is limited by the current generation of consoles.
In an interview with Trusted Reviews, he admitted that he wanted to implement some new things in the Xbox 360 and PS 3 versions, but due to their limitations, it just wasn’t possible. He also said that the game: “does start to show the limitations of the current technology.”
In spite all of this though, he likes the fact that working with current-generation hardware provides developers with a welcoming challenge:
“The first games that will come out for the next generation of consoles will probably be just like an up-scaled version of everything,” he said. “All the textures will be ramped up twice, the resolution, everything…that’s really just a brute-force approach to making great-looking games, and, in a way, it’s much more of a challenge doing it with this current generation.”
Hitman: Absolution will be out on November 20 for the Xbox 360, PS 3, and PC.
