Dreamfall Chapters Could See a Release On Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Wii U

Red Thread Games has revealed that the chances of Dreamfall Chapters making it to Xbox One and PlayStation 4 are ”extremely good.” A Wii U version is also on the table.

“We are preparing to go to consoles,” lead developer Ragnar Tornquist told Eurogamer at Rezzed. ”Without officially announcing anything. We are keen on getting this game to as many people as possible.

“We’re building a game that has cross-platform technology anyway, so I think the chances are extremely good that we’ll land on one or both of the next-gen consoles.”

He confirmed that the team is in discussions with all three platform holders, but currently discussions are furthest along with Sony. ”We have started dialogue with Microsoft, yeah,” he said. “The Xbox One and Microsoft, they get a lot of flak, but it’s still an extremely interesting platform for us, obviously, and it’s going to be huge.

“I’ve officially also said that Sony is a lot more inviting and welcoming to indie developers, so it’s a lot easier for us to start that dialogue and get support. It is a bit harder with Microsoft but it’s not like we’re excluding anything.”

“We are also in dialogue with Nintendo. We’re going to be looking at it,” he answered when asked about the console. “We can’t make any promises because the the Wii U, it’s underpowered compared to the next-gen consoles and PC obviously – I don’t think that’s a secret or Nintendo would get upset at me.

“We’re going to look at getting the game running on Wii U and then we’ll make decisions depending on how that goes and what we see the market possibilities are doing. Like I said, we don’t want to exclude anything, so we’ll try anything.”
