Braid creator Jonathan Blow’s next, The Witness, may just be heading to consoles afterall, contrary to earlier reports of Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3’s dated specs making it too much work to be worth the effort. “It’s very difficult for me to believe that we’ll be able to deliver the experience we want people to have on a 360,” Blow even said.
That thinking has apparently changed, with Blow telling GameInformer that the initial plan is to release the game on PC and iOS, with other platforms possibly following later.
“My current idea is to launch on PC and iOS, and then maybe one of the consoles which has not been decided, and later to bring the game to all other platforms,” says Blow.
“We can only do a certain number of platforms at launch, because we’re small. A few months ago, I was doing all these interviews, and I didn’t think we were going to do a console at launch. But we’re hiring two more programmers, which has a huge impact on what we can do. So now the idea is open again, that we might do a console launch, but now what exactly that is depends on all sorts of business things that we just haven’t figured out yet.”
So it’s being looked into at the very least, which should make Braid fans’ days just a wee bit brighter.
