I’m sitting at my desk after our first day of funding and I’m finding it very difficult to put into words just how grateful I am to everyone and the support they’ve given us over the last 24 hours. Your outpouring is inspiring and we’re doing our best to answer the various questions, requests and concerns you have regarding the campaign, rewards, supported platforms and bugs you’ve encountered in our demo.
In regards to a potential PlayStation 4 version of the sci-fi RPG, Kick said that Nightdive has “started discussions with Sony regarding a PS4 release,” but they can’t guarantee anything just yet.
