Dying Light, the upcoming zombie game from polish developer Techland, is not release a PS3 and Xbox One version of the game. The reason for the cancellation is because too many compromises would have been made that the core vision of the game would have been lost. “For instance, up to 200,000 objects can be displayed in the game at once,” the post explains with regards to the technical demands of the title. “Add to this our use of realistic, physics-based lighting technology and you really start to push the next-gen systems to the limit,” stated Techland.
Techland concluded their statement with this;”Therefore, after thorough internal testing, we have come to the conclusion that we have no choice but to leave past-gen systems behind and release Dying Light exclusively on the next-gen consoles and PC. Put simply, older consoles just couldn’t run the game and stay true to the core vision of Dying Light at the same time.”
Dying Light is out January 27 on PS4, Xbox One, PC.
