SOEs John Smedley Confirms PlanetSide 2 Release Bumped to Early 2014
SOE boss John Smedley confirms PlanetSide 2 launch delay for PS4 and chats about the expansion of the free-to-play market.
SOE boss John Smedley recently dropped in for an interview with Bloomberg to talk about SOEs free-to-play strategy and the upcoming PlayStation 4 launch for DC Universe Online and PlanetSide 2. While DC Universe Online will be available at the PlayStation 4s launch on November 15th, it looks like PlanetSide 2 wont be available until early 2014 according to Smedley in a recent Bloomberg interview.
"We're helping the Sony PlayStation 4 launch on November 15 by releasing DC Universe Online at launch, and we're following up that early next year with our next game, Planetside 2, on PS4," Smedley told Bloomberg.
Originally both titles were expected to release for the PlayStation 4 this year, but it looks as though PlanetSide 2 will be a little late to the party.
Smedley also took some time to talk about the growing free-to-play market and the expansion of online gaming, pointing to the recent success of the League of Legends World Championship Finals, which managed to sell out the Staple Center in Los Angeles earlier this month.
