CCP chief marketing officer David Reid objected when it was suggested that EVE: Valkyrie has been confirmed for PC.
CCP certainly grabbed gamers' attention when it revealed EVE: Valkyrie, a space sim based in the popular EVE universe. Originally started as a five man project, Valkyrie would go on to impress with its fast-paced action as well as its integration with the Oculus Rift headset.
That being the case, CCP has now arguably muddied the waters surrounding the game with its recent refusal to confirm that the game would be coming both to PCs and Oculus Rift. Commenting on the game in an interview CCP's chief marketing officer David Reid interjected an objection when it was assumed that Valkyrie would be coming to those platforms. "We haven't confirmed that Valkyrie's on PC," he said. "It's capable of playing on PC right now, but we haven't confirmed what we're going to launch it on."
Reid would elaborate that "it technically works on PC, and it's working fine, but there are other platforms it could run on. There's nothing that technically prevents it from running on a console, for example." He affirmed that "PC is definitely in the cards" but wouldn't give a definite answer as to whether or not the company was actually planning to press forward with PC plans.
Suffice it to say this is a development that might surprise eager fans of EVE. With Dust 514, the online shooter companion to EVE Online, already exclusive to the PS3, there were likely a lot of franchise devotees looking forward to an offshoot they could play on PC. To hear that a PC version might be "in the cards" isn't likely to be altogether comforting.
