Oddworld Finally Confirmed For Xbone

Oddworld creator Lorne Lanning has confirmed to Eurogamer that New 'n' Tasty is coming to Xbox One later this year.

Speaking to Eurogamer at E3, he confirmed that once the PlayStation versions of New 'n' Tasty are done, Oddworld Inhabitants will focus on the Steam version, then the Xbox One and Wii U versions.

"We've had some talks and I think we're past it. We're past it in a positive way. As soon as we get our obligations on the PS platforms out, our intention is to get rolling on the Xbox platform and really treat it with the same level of care," he said. "We don't have a release date, but we know it'll be before the end of the year."

Does this mean Microsoft has changed its parity clause? "I'm still expecting them to, but I'm not sure how soft or hard they are on it right now, but I know for us they wanted the title on the platform. They were very nice about it. They were very convenient in getting us dev stations," he said. "But the fact is, we were strapped for time and resources, so the parity clause was a challenge. I don't know where it stands officially with Xbox at the moment, but but we've worked it out."

He also noted that since the game is on Unity, it's a little difficult to port to Xbox One and Wii U, but he said that both console manufacturers were understanding about this and helping out. Beyond that, he couldn't say if it would come to Xbox One or Wii U first as it depended on resources and which would be easiest to optimize.

Nice, I'm glad more people get to play this game.

I buy used games. I own a PS4, so according to Gamefaqs law I now have the right to act like a complete douchebag on the Xbox One board.

Glad Microsoft waived the clause.

Of course I fully expect this thread to be full of people ripping on the game and saying how it sucks and that they didn't want it so they wish Microsoft didn't waive the clause. Least, that's what I expect since that's what's been said when it was announced to not be coming thanks to the parity clause.

If a game is released on another console before the Xbox then it's not allowed to release on the Xbox at all. Either games have to be released at the same time or on the Xbox first.

It's a BS clause that needs to die. Costs the Xbox some good games.
