Jonathan Blow, developer of The Witness, has revealed that the game may see a release on PC and iOS at the same time as PlayStation 4.
Blow told Kotaku in a recent interview that The Witness is only a console timed exclusive and Sony had paid no money to secure the game. He added that if there is enough time then the game may also release for PC and iOS at the same time.
“Our deal with Sony is a limited-time exclusivity that applies only to competing console platforms,” Blow said. “Basically it is that you will see the game on the PlayStation 4 before you will see it on the Wii U or the next Microsoft console, if the game ever appears on either of those (whether it appears on those consoles eventually is purely up to whatever future arrangements might happen between us and Nintendo/Microsoft/Random Publishers/Whoever).”
“People have been speculating that I got a money hat for this agreement with Sony, or that we needed to do this in order to fund development of The Witness. Actually, no money was involved at all,” he added. “There were people at Sony who really liked the game and were keeping in touch with us about it, and so we naturally started going to their PS4 developer events, got a dev kit, and started playing with it.”
