How much longer will Xbox One and PS4 games also be on current-gen?

There are quite a few titles that currently share different versions on different generation consoles. Games like Assassin's Creed IV, Need for Speed: Rivals, and Madden share a lot of qualities with the prior generation version. In our ongoing Q&A session this week with Executive Producer from EA Marcus Nilsson, we ask him how much longer to expect cross-gen releases. This is what he had to say:

I think it's a numbers game. It is really way too early to think about that. In my own mind, both 360 and PS3 are still very powerful platforms and we need to look closely at the adaption of next-gen consoles. We will see (current-generation consoles) for a few more years without a doubt.

With titles like Destiny and The Evil Within seeing cross-generation releases, it will certainly be a while before we see this come to an end. As Nilsson states above, unlike the past with the PS2 and original Xbox, the last generation of systems can pump out some very quality titles, and the new generation can add more detail to certain aspects. Stay tuned for more Q&A this week with Marcus Nilsson.
