Speaking to VGC at a London launch event for the PS4 exclusive, Media Molecule co-founder Healey suggested the developer has an eye on the future, but said he’d like to see the game’s popularity last on PS4 first.
“Obviously at the moment we’re focused on PS4 and I would actually hope that it extends the life of the PS4 to be honest with you, then maybe when other companies start making games for it, the community will carry on making games for it, but if it’s as successful as we hope it is then it’s an obvious progression.
“You know, it’s a platform, so ideally in the future we’ll migrate to whatever is relevant,” Healey continued. “That’s probably about as much as I can say without getting smacked by someone.”
“Well yeah, so I mean it works by default then, doesn’t it, that’s the thing,” Healey said when this was put to him. “I mean, we want to support it going forward, so we want to be there for the full story really.”
“I think that would be cool,” he said. “I mean obviously Sony have an opinion about that but yeah, I think, I don’t know where it’s going to go in the future, I mean it would be great to see that.
“That’s not something that’s happening right now,” he continued, “but I think a lot of that depends on where the games industry goes in general, I suppose.”
Healey added: “I mean I think Sony have become more open recently to publishing stuff on the PC in general anyway, haven’t they? Isn’t there some stuff that’s happening, I’m not sure?”
Dreams is billed as “a platform where you can create anything you can imagine, then share it with the world using just your PS4”.
