Rise of The Ronin is the next big release from popular Japanese developer Team Ninja. Set in the 19th century during the Bakumutsu era, the game aims to provide a unique RPG experience.
Rise of The Ronin is expected to release in 2024, and many fans have been curious if the game would support the last-generation PS4 console. However, Team Ninja has recently confirmed that Rise of The Ronin will not be released on PS4.
Why it matters: Despite its aging hardware, a large number of recent games are still released on the PS4 console. As such, many fans were curious if Rise of The Ronin would follow the trend.
The game is exclusive to PlayStation on consoles, and the FAQs from the store page have clarified that a PS4 version is not in development.
Rise of The Ronin was first revealed in 2022, and the game has been in development for over 7 years. As such, it is shaping up to be Team Ninja’s most ambitious project, and it makes sense that the developer would skip PS4 for the modern PS5 hardware.
While cross-platform games are still abundant in 2023, games like Final Fantasy 16 and Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 will mark the beginning of PlayStation’s shift away from PS4. Rise of The Ronin appears to follow in a similar direction.
Developing the game for PS5 should allow the developer to utilize the new hardware for a bigger world, seamless load times, impressive visuals, and more. All of this should help Team Ninja realize their vision for the upcoming RPG.
