Square Enix released The Last Remnant on the Xbox 360 back in November and has just recently released the PC version. When the game was first announced though, it was announced to be Square Enix’s first multiplatform game. Yet, a PlayStation 3 version has yet to arrive or even be mentioned within the past many months.
Over at the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco, Chris Kohler of Wired asked the million dollar question during the Last Remnant panel with Square Enix’s Hiroshi Takai and Epic’s Mike Capps.
“The Last Remnant,” Kohler said, “was originally announced to be Square Enix’s first multi-platform game. But the PlayStation 3 version hasn’t come out yet. Is it still happening?”
No one wants to speak. Finally, someone ventures: “Well, the PC version came out this week.”
Me: “Yes, it did.”
More silence. Everyone’s kind of glancing around.
Takai: “Well, as for the PS3 version, I can’t say anything about that.”
Me: “Alright, then.”
At this point, I’d wonder if they remembered they were making a PlayStation 3 version. Or if they’re making it at all.
