Free-to-play PS4 RPG Deep Down IS still in development, but has undergone some big changes since it was first unveiled.
It looks like Deep Down will take just a little longer,” Capcom's consumer games development boss Yoshinori Ono told 4Gamer, as reported by Siliconera. It also looks like some people are starting to ask ‘did the development come to a halt?' but it's nothing like that.
When looking back at the previous ideas we had for deep down, we felt concerns about it not being able to capture an audience as we would've liked, so it was decided to give it more time so that we can further enhance it.
We're thinking about showing something that looks completely different from what previously shown, although it might be a while from now. The ideas we have for the game is much larger now compared to when we first announced it. The ideas we had before might not have been good enough.”
Deep Down was unveiled almost exactly two years ago and was later confirmed as being free-to-play. A new gameplay video was shown off late last year, while a second short later revealed that the game would have an Assassin's Creed-style future/past split, the details of which have not yet been clarified.
