Frontier says it would be ‘stupid’ not to bring Elite Dangerous to PS4 and Xbox One

Elite Dangerous is coming to PS4 and Xbox One, it seems.

Speaking to Eurogamer Frontier boss David Braben said in no uncertain terms that he was not announcing a console port of the game. But then pretty much did.

"I’ve just got to watch out," he said. "I don’t want to do something that constitutes an announcement, but we would be stupid not to support other platforms, including console.

"We’ve done lots and lots of games over time. We’ve done first-party Sony games. We’ve done first party Microsoft games. On console. So yes, we’d be stupid not to think about it.”

So why the secrecy?

"We’re a public company and announcements have to be properly made. But it’s obviously something we’re bearing in mind,” he added. "We’re very focused on delivering a great PC game. We will then do the game on Mac and during that time we will be looking at other platforms as well.”

A PS4 port would of course open the door to a Project Morpheus version, owing to the game’s existing support for Oculus Rift.

The game is currently due out on PC some time this year.
