Why is Dark Souls 2 not coming to XBOX ONE?

#11Stefmeister7Posted 3/19/2014 2:41:29 AM
i feel bad for people who trade in their old consoles for the newer ones. especially when the previous generation still has excellent games coming out :/

People have been demanding games for the next (current) generation for months now. Why bother releasing games for the last generation when everyone has moved on to XBOX ONE and PS4?


More or less 160 Million PS360s have been sold combined.
6,5 Million PS4s and a little bit over 3 Million X1s....Yeah everyone moved on.

But its true - We want and need them on NextGen.
From Software said the Engine is made for it and obviously would work cause of the PC Version that comes out.
But they said they don't have enough people and money to focus on more platforms.Maybe at a later time.

But be honest
You know exactly - If they would bring Dark Souls 2 to NextGen it would be PS4 Only cause no one cares for Xbox One.
Dark Souls is selling badly on the 360 with its 80 Million sold Consoles.Do you think it would be worth it to bring it to a struggling console with absolutely no demand coming from the people?

Well Dark Souls 2 is missing one important person anyway.
Miyazaki who directed/worked on Demons and Dark Souls 1 as the leading guy.
Rumor is he works on a PS4 Exclusive =)

true .

Japan pretty much said itself (yes , the country itself , there was so much laughs from japanese players over the september xbox1 release that it's representative of the whole country as a players demographic ) that he didn't care for xbox one.
No developer with japanese players in his sight would in his right mind care for a xbox one version of a game.

Lol show me the sales charts. Right now I'm playing DKS2 on my 360 and have about 7 other friends playing it too. Also the rumor of Demon Souls 2 have been shot down too. If DKS2 went next gen which it probably won't it would be for all consoles. Same thing if DKS 3 comes out. It would be for Xbone and PS4. I don't get why fanboys just want games to stay on a single console. Its like they get some joy out of that which is really sad.

P.S. Yeah Xbox One fan really don't like RPG which is why Kingdom Hearts and FFXV is coming to the system too.

Also read this from vgchartz

http://www.vgchartz.com/article/251541/usa-preorders-chart-8-march-2014-titanfall-dark-souls-ii-yoshis-new-island/

"Dark Souls II (PS3) added 18,269 pre-orders for a grand total of 218,413. Expect first week sales in the USA at retail to be in the 250,000 to 350,000 unit range. Expect the game to sell between 500,000 and 800,000 units lifetime in the US.

Dark Souls II (X360) added 13,631 pre-orders for a grand total of 151,044. Expect first week sales in the USA at retail to be in the 175,000 to 250,000 unit range. Expect the game to sell between 400,000 and 700,000 units lifetime in the US."

Yeah DKS2 is selling so bad on the 360. From Software is better off losing 400,000-700,000 sales of the game on the 360.

Same reasons GTA5,South Park,Batman Origins and many other titles that are not released on next gen,Dark Souls 2 was being made years ago before next gen was even being talked about,and with such a small user base it really does not matter,plus they can rerelease it later or bring DS3 to next gen.
