The PlayStation 4 and Xbox One platforms are apparently getting equal treatment in the development of Just Cause 3. A recent report from VG247 out of a meeting with Avalanche suggested otherwise.
Comments made by the developer seemed to express that the PlayStation 4 was the lead development platform for the game, but Square Enix has since come out to clarify that the PC version is in fact the lead platform, and that the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions are seen as equals. A follow-up on the story suggests that the Xbox One is optimized best for consoles.
Just a few days ago at Microsoft’s Gamescom Media Briefing, a new video was shown for Just Cause 3 that demonstrates even more destruction and mayhem found in the open world title. While it’s probably easy money to bet that the PC version of the game will have the most to offer when it comes to graphics, the Xbox One version isn’t looking bad at all — that is, assuming that the trailer showed during the showcase was indeed footage from an Xbox One console.
One of the most anticipated titles of 2015, Just Cause 3 is set to arrive on Xbox One, PS4, and PC later this year.
