Wii U version possible, but not promised because of low specs.

Dreamfall Chapters‘ chance of appearing on next-gen consoles is “extremely good,” lead developer Ragnarok Tornquist told Eurogamer.

“We are preparing to go to consoles,” Tornquist said at Rezzed 2013, “without officially announcing anything. We are keen on getting this game to as many people as possible.”

“The game works extremely well in a TV/couch scenario – it’s a perfect game for that.

“We’re building a game that has cross-platform technology anyway, so I think the chances are extremely good that we’ll land on one or both of the next-gen consoles.”

Tornquist and developer Red Thread are currently in ongoing discussions with Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo, but negotiations with Sony are furthest along, he said.

“We have started dialogue with Microsoft, yeah,” he said. “The Xbox One and Microsoft, they get a lot of flack, but it’s still an extremely interesting platform for us, obviously, and it’s going to be huge.

“I’ve officially also said that Sony is a lot more inviting and welcoming to indie developers, so it’s a lot easier for us to start that dialogue and get support. It is a bit harder with Microsoft but it’s not like we’re excluding anything.

“The PlayStation 4 is definitely an interesting platform for us right now,” he stressed.

As for Wii U, discussions with Nintendo are still ongoing, but as it’s less powerful compared to Xbox One and PlayStation 4, Tornquist “can’t make any promises.”

“We’re going to look at getting the game running on Wii U and then we’ll make decisions depending on how that goes and what we see the market possibilities are doing,” he said. “Like I said, we don’t want to exclude anything, so we’ll try anything.”
