New World May Never Come To Console

Ama­zon’s recent­ly released MMO New World is doing extreme­ly well in the PC mar­ket right now, which has peeked the inter­est of con­sole play­ers. These users are ask­ing Ama­zon Game Stu­dios if the game might come to con­sole at some point.

The devel­op­er their response to Twit­ter, say­ing those hop­ing to play New World on con­sole are going to have to wait–if they ever do it at all. New World will be playable only on PC for the fore­see­able future,” the stu­dio said.

Ama­zon used the same response for a num­ber of peo­ple on Twit­ter who asked if the game was head­ing to con­sole. As an added nail in the cof­fin, the stu­dio addressed con­troller com­pat­i­bil­i­ty. There is no native con­troller sup­port cur­rent­ly in the works for New World. How­ev­er, they did say peo­ple can use the Steam con­troller if they want that kind of experience.

There is no native con­troller sup­port cur­rent­ly planned for New World. We do, how­ev­er, encour­age you to try the Steam con­troller sup­port if you wish to play with a con­troller,” the team said.

PC MMOs have made the leap to con­soles before, includ­ing The Elder Scrolls Online, DC Uni­verse Online, and Final Fan­ta­sy XIV. The Lord of the Rings Online is report­ed­ly com­ing to PS5 and Xbox Series X|S in the future.

New World launched on Sep­tem­ber 28th and quick­ly became extreme­ly pop­u­lar, reach­ing more than 700,000 con­cur­rent play­ers on Steam. Of course, this pop­u­lar­i­ty is caus­ing some serv­er issues, which is being addressed by Ama­zon Game Studios.
