Human Element Going Next-Gen, Ouya Version Scrapped
This open world zombie survival title is heading for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One and has dumped its Ouya counterpart along the way.
Polygon reports that two years ago, Robotoki originally stated that Human Element would have an episode-based prequel series that was going to be made exclusively for Ouya. Robert Bowling, president of Robotoki, has contacted Polygon and said that the development studio cancelled the Ouya prequel series to Human Element and is focusing on using Crytek’s CryEngine for development. Bowling has also confirmed that Human Element is being developed for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
“The ambitious narrative and gameplay of Human Element required an innovative set of features in order to achieve our vision,” said Bowling in a press release. “CryEngine is the perfect fit for us because it delivers so many powerful features straight out of the box such as the physical-based shading system and the infinite terrain from segmented worlds to create a massive open-world experience but still allow the visual fidelity and detail our players expect from a first-person experience from our team.”
Robotoki is aiming for a November 2015 release date for Human Element on PC but has not made any hints towards any sort of launch window for Human Element’s console versions.
