Takeshi Miyazoe made several statements in regards to why “Dark Souls 2” on the PC won’t be released at the same time as the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions. In an interview with Digital Spy on Feb. 11, the producer disclosed that Bandai Namco still does not know the exact release date for the action role-playing game on personal computers. However, he is personally hoping that the delay will only be “weeks” as opposed to “months.” You can find his comments below:
It's tough to say. We're still working on it at this point. I'm not going to say months. I hope it’s weeks.
Takeshi Miyazoe went to explain why “Dark Souls 2” got pushed back on PC. He admitted that porting the first “Dark Souls” game to personal computers was an “eye-opener” for the company. Although From Software apparently put forth their best efforts, it fell short as to what fans were expecting from a PC port. As a result, the development team decided to take there time with the sequel. You can find some screens of the upcoming multiplatform game with the slideshow to the left of this article and the rest of his statement below:
The PC audience was an eye-opener for us. We did do the PC port based on the fan petition and fan feedback. We were really happy for that, and we did our best to try and support the game as best as possible. But at the same time, we did realize the PC fan base and the PC audience really have high expectations for what a PC game should be. So for Dark Souls 2, we'll do our best to try and fulfill the basics of what the game should have.
“Dark Souls 2” on the PS3 and Xbox 360 will be made available on March 11th in the United States. Although the same title is coming to the PC, Takeshi Miyazoe previously stated that From Software currently has no plans to port the product to the recently-launched PS4 and Xbox One next-generation systems.
