Speaking to the official EU PlayStation Blog during E3, Ready at Dawn co-founder Ru Weerasuriya talked about the pressure on developing their new title, The Order: 1886.
“Yeah, it’s tough,” said Weerasuriya when asked how the team was coping with the pressure of working on a big new IP for the PlayStation 4.
“Anybody would be lying if they said it wasn’t. It’s a lot of pressure and there are a lot of unknowns. You make a lot of bets at the beginning because you don’t know how things are going to be two years down the line. The good thing for us is that we didn’t have to bring a lot of legacy over, and because of that we’ve made a lot of bets that luckily for us turned out really well.
“But yes, the pressure is always on. It seems that there’s a lot of expectation now and there will be more after E3. So all we have to do now is finish it!”
Weerasuriya also discussed about getting the most out of the next-gen hardware, just as they did the PSP.
“We’ve tried to push the boundaries of what could be done,” said Weerasuriya. “That’s the same mentality we’re bringing to PS4. We’re working on a single platform β we want to push it, we want to get everything out of it, and hopefully that’s exactly what we’re going to do β milk it for all it’s worth.”
The Order: 1886 was revealed at E3, while it looked interesting, it is too early to depict what the game is going to be like.
The Order: 1886 is set to be released in 2014 as a PlayStation 4 exclusive, with no official date set yet.
