Trion Worlds is at least considering the possibility of porting its MMO RIFT to Xbox One and PlayStation 4, following titles such as Final Fantasy XIV, The Elder Scrolls Online, and DC Universe Online.
When asked about the possibility of a move to consoles senior designer director Simon Ffinch stated that the developer is waiting to “see how those consoles develop” before making any decisions. “I’m not going to ever say anything definitively one way or the other on something that is that far in the future,” Ffinch told Videogamer.
“I can say that we don’t have plans for Rift going on to the console right now. Whether we will change that attitude as we see how those consoles develop, I don’t know. We may well do. But right now, I don’t think there would be the player base for something like Rift on those consoles until they’ve [been around] a little bit longer.”
RIFT made the switch to free-to-play last month.
