Everybody's Gone to the Rapture 'not planned' for PC, dev says

Everybody's Gone to the Rapture, the upcoming first-person adventure game from The Chinese Room, will launch exclusively on the PlayStation 4 and is "not planned" for PC, according to a tweet from the developer's official Twitter account.

"That's not an absolute no to PC," the tweet reads, "but it's not planned right now."

The Chinese Room's previous games, Dear Esther and Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs, were both developed for PC. Co-director Dan Pinchbeck told Rock, Paper, Shotgun that The Chinese Room is focusing on PS4 for several reasons.

"So the thinking went like this," Pinchbeck said. "We don't have enough money or production expertise to make this game without help. We don't think we can raise enough through Kickstarter or public alpha to make this happen. We could do with production support on a game this scale. We've always wanted to make a console game. Publishers have bad reputations all too often. Hey, Sony Santa Monica are great though. We've met them a few times and really like them and their attitude."

Pinchbeck described Everybody's Gone to the Rapture as the "spiritual successor to Dear Esther" in a blog post yesterday. You can watch a trailer for the upcoming game above.
