PS4: 'Dust 514' studio talks next-gen support

By
Dust 514 will continue on the PlayStation 3 and beyond, CCP has revealed.

Digital Spy asked CCP chief marketing officer David Reid if there are any plans to carry Dust 514 over to the next-generation.

"Oh absolutely. It's always the thing you think about," Reid explained.

"As a company right now, CCP is on the verge of shipping its second product and so we have to be absolutely focused that this product works, which is why there's an immense focus on the PS3 right now. And there's a lot of life left in the PS3.

"Sony has done a really good job in cost reducing their hardware, and so the 80 million PS3s aren't going anywhere."

However, Reid added that while CCP has nothing to announce in terms of PS4 support, the Dust 514 community can expect to be playing the game far into the future.

"These communities are super important and games as a service means that you have to find a way to keep that going, even if the hardware changes," he added.

"We absolutely expect to keep this game going on the PlayStation 3 and beyond for a long time."

Taking place within the EVE universe, Dust 514 gives users the ability to co-ordinate attacks with starship pilots in EVE Online in a bid to conquer planets and gain resources.

The latest update, titled Uprising, adds 'Planetary Conquest' mode, new upgrades, balances and skills.

Dust 514 entered closed beta last May with the first invites sent out to EVE players and attendees of the Fanfest convention in Iceland.

Dust 514 will be available on PS3 from May 14. Users can download the beta today.
