Train2Game students may be eagerly any announcements on the next generation of consoles, but there’s plenty of life in what we already have yet.
That’s according to Epic Games Design Director and the man behind Gears of War 3, Cliff Bleszinski.
“I think if we bring out any more products on the 360 depending on life cycle, we’ll be able to squeeze more water from that stone,” he told The Telegraph.
“That said, I still think there is a huge amount of room for improvement in graphics. We want to get to Avatar-quality and real time and beyond. I think we can absolutely get there, hopefully in the next generation if everybody ponies up and does good hardware.”
And Bleszinski hinted that there are already new consoles in the works, but refused to be drawn on anything. “I could tell you, but I’d violate an NDA.” he said.
Nothing is official, but as the Train2Game blog reported earlier this year, Microsoft were looking for designers to work on the next Xbox console. Meanwhile, Sony claim they’re in no rush to develop the successor to the PlayStation 3.
There’s no indication of any release dates for the next generation of consoles, but some Train2Game students have speculated that the 2014 release scheduled of the newly announced Homefront 2 sequel could point to it being one of the first next-gen titles.
So Train2Game, what are your thoughts on Cliff Blesinski’s remarks? How much room for improvement do you think the current generation of consoles has? And when do you think we’ll see new systems released?
