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.
