BioWare: Old Republic not coming to consoles; PC is the “place to be”


PC gamers rejoice: BioWare’s Daniel Erickson has said Star Wars: The Old Republic is not coming to consoles, noting that the interface for PC is “made for games” and that the possibility had not been discussed.

“I have no idea if it’s possible,” Erickson said of a console version. “I’d have to ask our tech director.

“I can tell you that it’s not anything that we’ve even discussed. There is nobody anywhere in Bioware laying the groundwork for that because we have a very large complicated game to ship first.”

Finally, he notes that PC is the “natural place to be” and that any game at BioWare uses the PC as the lead platform.

Star Wars: The Old Republic is due for release next spring.
