Bohemia rules out Arma 3 on consoles

Johners
 Share

Czech developer Bohemia does have PS4 and Xbox One developer kits, but Arma 3 won't be asapted for them.

 

Project leader Joris-Jan Van T' has dismissed Arma 3 for the consoles. "I personally really like consoles so I would love to see it on there, but for Arma 3, from the start it was developed as PC only, and it wouldn't do it justice - there wouldn't be an easy port to console. You'd really have to redesign stuff like how the camera works, and the interface, so for Arma 3 that's out of the scope. For something that is next, it is becoming much more likely to be multiplatform."

 

The team also tried to port Arma 2 to the Xbox 360 but it couldn't be done. For the next two years, the 50 to 70 person team will be focusing on Arma 3.

Not surprised. If they can't get the game optimized well on the PC in the first place then there was no way it would ever happen on consoles.

It would probably run 30 fps on low settings 720p

Well it still pretty much is a single-threaded game I can't imagine consoles in the future any time soon

thats not the problem, its the fact that you cant just port it to consoles in 1, 2 ,3...

Basically saying "Console can't handle our game". It's not really that greatly done on PC either, so the console would be a definite no go.

Wait, I'm sorry, let me get this straight:

 

This wasn't a given?

I love Arma and I love my PS4 (even though no games :P ) but even the controls would have to be completely overhauled, you use most of the keyboard when playing Arma I couldn't imagine playing it with a controller. Then there's the obvious performance issues which hurt us all :(

Consoles wouldn't have been able to run the game in the first place. A lot of PCs can't even run it well the way it is now.

At least there is a reason why the game runs poorly. It's a simulation game so there is a lot that the engine has to calculate when anything goes on.

Try multiplayer. With >50 players. The trouble will come fast.

I don't always have time to study, but when I do, I don't.

Arma has a horribly unoptimized engine, they put a lot of work on a single cpu instead of spreading it throughout all the cores.
