PlayStation 4 exclusive Deep Down delayed to improve graphics

Capcom will ensure that nobody confuses its upcoming PS4 title with a PS3 game.

Capcom's free-to-play online adventure Deep Down will be delayed so that Capcom can take full advantage of the PlayStation 4 hardware, the company has said.

While Deep Down has only been currently confirmed for release in Japan, the game was expected to go into beta roughly around the same time the PlayStation 4 launches in Japan on February 22.

"About Deep Down, I think we'll give full fledged information to everyone after the summer, so you may have to wait for a little while beyond the launch [of PS4] on February 22nd," said producer Kazunori Sugiura in Dengeki Online (translated via Dual Shockers)

Explaining the decision, Sugiura said that the team wants to take full advantage of the hardware inside the PS4. "Since we don't want to risk to be told ‘This could have been done on PS3!' we want to finish a game that fully uses the PS4 hardware specs."

Deep Down is set in 2094 New York, though the game has a Medieval aesthetic. The game is said to feature four-player co-op play with randomly generated dungeons.
