Okay, it’s more about speculation, but Zombie Studios have recently got the console publishing rights from Perfect World Entertainment according to IGN who mentioned a press release from Blacklight: Retributions designer Jared Gerritzen.
“Reacquiring the console rights to Blacklight: Retribution allows us a great deal of flexibility in the growth of the Blacklight franchise. We have always had huge plans for the Blacklight franchise and with this move we will finally be able to bring the game to console.”
States the press release.
It’d be a really exciting move for the free-to-play model and it’s move from a very PC dominated market to the console market.
The bad news is that we have little to no information on what consoles Blacklight: Retribution could be coming to; Whether it’s an almost immediate release, or whether they’re going to wait for the next generation of consoles to bring a more true to the original version remains to be seen, but I’m excited!
