Despite the cancellation of its progenitor TV show, Defiance defiantly chugs along on PC, as well as on the last generation of consoles: PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. That’s not good enough for Trion Worlds, however, who wants to bring the game to a wider audience via Sony’s newest console.
In an interview with DualShockers, Trion Worlds showed off its tech demo of Defiance working on a PlayStation 4, with improved graphics over its PS3 version. If it does come to PS4 in the near-ish future, it will still be free-to-play but won’t be exactly the same game. According to the interview, Trion “plans to make changes” after getting some feedback from the community.
Elsewhere in the interview, Producer Matthew Pettit says that the company thought “didn’t go the sequel route because we think we already have a good core game,” comparing it to Destiny and its maybe-too-soon sequel, which seems to be repeating some of the first game’s mistakes.
The article also drops a bit of information you never hear from game companies, saying that Defiance has “120k monthly active users across all platforms.” That’s not a bad figure, and should be enough to keep the game going for a good while — especially if it gets a boost on a new platform.
