Elite: Dangerous, the massively multiplayer online space simulator from Frontier Developments, may eventually be released on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, said studio head David Braben in an interview with Eurogamer.
Frontier raised more than £1.57 million ($2.69 million) on Kickstarter at the start of 2013 to fund the development of Mac and Windows PC versions of Elite: Dangerous. Currently, the studio is "very focused on delivering a great PC game," said Braben, adding, "We will then do the game on Mac and during that time we will be looking at other platforms as well."
Braben pointed out that Frontier has experience making games on Sony and Microsoft consoles — Elite: Dangerous is being made in the same engine that the studio used for the Xbox 360 and Xbox One title Zoo Tycoon — and then said, "We'd be stupid not to think about [console versions of Elite: Dangerous]." However, Braben gave no official confirmation of bringing the game to PS4 and Xbox One.
Elite: Dangerous is set for release later this year on PC; the Mac version will follow three months afterward, according to the game's website. Frontier launched a premium beta at the end of May, and plans to begin a standard beta July 29. For more, check out our E3 preview of the game.
