During this year’s QuakeCo, Bethesda and id Software released a new trailer for Quake Champions which will be released for PC only.
The sequel to the first person shooter game will not be making its way to the current generation consoles and Bethesda’s vice president Pete Hines while speaking with the Gamespot mentioned the reasons behind why the studio will not release the new game for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
According to Hines, this game is a complete package for PC featuring 120Hz while no current generation console could support the game at this rate, looking at the hardware they feature. He said that;
I guess theoretically there’s a chance [it could come to consoles]. Who knows what future consoles look like? But this is full stop a PC product: 120Hz, unlocked frame rate. That’s the experience we want folks to have.
While he also hinted that the developing studio id Software might consider porting the game for the upcoming Project Scorpio and PlayStation 4 Neo as they are more powerful than the standard version but he also said that it is quite early to comment on the matter.
Bethesda revealed the Quake Champions during its E3 2016 press conference while during the recent QuakeCon event, a new gameplay trailer was also revealed by the studio. Stay tuned for more updates!
