Versions for PS4 and Xbox One are looking likely to follow.
The Vanishing of Ethan Carter will be coming to PC in around four months time according to the games creator Adrian Chmielarz. Talking to Eurogamer at the Poland’s Digital Dragons conference he noted of a summer release, “We are going to have probably the worst possible release date, which is the middle of summer…It’s hot and it’s summer—do you really want to play a game about autumn?”
Ethan Carter is an exploration-based adventure game inspired by early 20th century macabre fiction. It is being made by The Astronauts, an independent team formerly from People Can Fly the devs behind Bulletstorm and Gears of War: Judgment. Ethan Carter will be The Astronauts’ first game and following some very hi-rez screens released late last year the photo-realistic 3D capture techniques used to create the game-world have been turning a lot of heads.
While The Astronauts concentrate on bringing the finished PC game Chmielarz, is wisely not ruling out versions for console saying of making PS4, Xbox One ports, It would be idiotic not to, to be honest, “Maybe that’s too strong of a word but you know what I mean, right? If the game resonates with people…that’s easily going to be the first thing we do.”
Chmielarz also mentioned that The Astronauts have already been in talks with both Microsoft and Sony and that once Ethan Carter is out for PC then he’ll be approaching both the big console giants for development kits.
