Co-director of Dark Souls II Yui Tanimura has said that developer From Software has not put any thought into next-gen versions of the game yet.
"We have not put any thought into this yet, so I unfortunately can’t answer at this point," Tanimura said when Edge asked him what it would take to bring the more graphically advanced PC version of Dark Souls II to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
When asked why From Software didn't develop a next-gen version of the game at the outset, Tanimura explained that the team's intention was to capitalize on the potential of the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 and deliver the game to fans as soon as possible.
Last year, Tanimura also admitted that the PC version of Dark Souls was "half-assed," and promised the studio won't make the same mistakes twice with the PC version of the upcoming sequel.
The PC version of Dark Souls shipped some ten months after the Xbox 360 and PS3 iterations. This won't happen with the sequel, as all Dark Souls II versions are slated to launch simultaneously on March 11, 2014.
