Xbox One's D4 Coming to PC

"Thanks, Obama."

199 Comments

GameSpot may get a commission from retail offers.

Xbox One murder mystery game D4: Dark Dream's Don't Die is coming to PC. Director Hidetaka Suehiro, who is perhaps better known by his nickname, Swery, announced the news today in Japanese gaming magazine Famitsu and on Twitter.

No Caption Provided

"Yes. D4 will be release for PC. #ThanksObama," he wrote.

Back in October 2014, Suehiro said a PC version of D4 was possible. The game is never coming to PlayStation 4, however, according to the developer.

D4 isn't the first game announced as an Xbox One exclusive to later be released for PC. Dead Rising 3 and Ryse: Son of Rome both made the jump to computers, while Killer Instinct might as well.

D4 was released for Xbox One in September 2014, and GameSpot gave the title a 7.0. Reviewer Kevin VanOrd praised its ridiculous story and atmosphere, while lamenting its stereotypical characters and several slow stretches that bogged down the pace.

Is this a continuation of that terrible "D" FMV adventure series from the late 90"s? What's next, another Clock Tower game?

@NaturallyEvil:

Not related to D or D2 at all - and those were not FMV games either (they had rendered graphics), nor were they terrible. The D4 is a shortening of the full title - Dark Dreams Don't Die.

Hopefully, the PC sales will be sufficient to get us a second episode.

Seeing that the game didn't sell great on the Xbox One, it would be for the best to just make the game a Microsoft Exclusive. No doubt the game will fair better that way.

Good news, but what's this #ThanksObama business? Is this related to PM Abe's visit to the US, or is Suehiro sarcastically blaming the failure of XB1 in Japan on the President?

@HonorOfGod:

Best online of any gaming application.

Plenty of exclusives, prefer multiplat games on Xbox One anyway, if not for the better online experience, just a more legitimate experience with the Achievements in tact.

Games seem to be a much better investment on Microsoft's part.

Xbox Live games with gold is a good reason to own either console. You really start paying for your console after like a year.

If you have Xbox Music $100 a year you get access to like every song ever on your phone, computer and Xbox, Xbox specifically has every music video ever.

Sunset Overdrive is by far the most awesome experience available, middle of the Season for it. Super fun game.

Killer Instinct is probably the best fighting game experience available. In the midst of another solid Season.

Call of Duty on Xbox One right now is first class, best online functionality, get the Season Pass first. Their past games still have strong populations going on.

I heard they were going Xbox One exclusive with WAW on Xbox One.

Cuphead looking to be the game of the year whenever it's released.

Neverwinter is probably the most classic FREE MMO on consoles right now. Just came out last month.

Xbox One online Final Fantasy game would be really cool too, could do Final Fantasy XI on Xbox One.

Sword Art Online would probably be hot, always thought having an actual legitimate story certifiable anime episode going on with a million people watching it and investigating all around it could be done in a really cool way.

.//Sign would be really cool too.

If they made WOW for Xbox One that put you in the actual realms going on right now, whatever they wanted to do to balance gameplay//controls only use two actions at a time, or four, make those four actions equal to the damage power of DPS, or defensive ability of TANK, or healing power of HEALS. Battle grounds would be really interesting. Surge of game play.

@etremelegendary@Master_Turismo@etremelegendary: I'm just saying. God knows I would love to play another WW2 game especially from Treyarch. I'm pretty sure it will be another three years before Treyarch makes another CoD game since Infinity Ward is up next followed by Sledgehammer Games. And I highly doubt that Activision would make the game exclusive to one console when the franchise sells great in numbers on multiple platforms. Alienating fans is like what Sony is doing with Street Fighter and Microsoft is doing with Tomb Raider. Doing that to CoD title would just make that situation even more retarded.

It is really sad that D4 didnt sold that great on the X1.
The game is fun,hilarious,the characters are interesting(not if you replay the game for the 10th time of course lol) and the story goes step for step forward.

This is not related to D2 or D in any way. The D4 comes from the full title, Dark Dreams Don't Die.

I do sometimes somewhat wonder why I got this One. But it tends to work out alright with these things eventually. Just sometimes it takes a little longer than you expected. God damn Quantum Break getting delayed. Poop ass.


Glad to see D4 getting exposed to more people. It is some kind of something.

Forza, Sunset Overdrive, MCC and Killer Instinct are still Xbox One exclusives, until that changes I still consider the Xbox One to be a better console to own over the PS4 if your a PC gamer.

@stride21: It's personal preference. I'll take Bloodborne over all of them honestly. Especially after Persona 5 and Star Ocean 5 release. You do you, I'll do me. ;) That's why variety exists. Microsoft needs to make some good RPGs though. Then I'll want a Xbox One.

@stride21: D4 and Forza Horizon 2 are the games I would've felt bummed out about missing. None on PS4. But I feel like I probably should've gotten a Wii U first. A lot of good games that aren't on PC on the Wii U. I'd consider getting one now, but prices have gone up since two years ago, don't make no sense. At this point it's almost as much as the other two. I won't stand for such poppycock.

@McStrongfast@stride21: Also, nintendo announced a next gen console already (they called it NX or something) rofl. So much for this gen imo. I would certainly go for that one if it had backwards compatibility since as you said many good games are on the wii u

Microsoft made it clear they were sending most of their One titles to PC also. That only supports the idea that the One is a beta to the REAL release. This is making One fans look so bloody st.upid.

one thing M$ HAS to do right when W10 launches is cross-buy games, like P$N does. getting a bunch of X1 games launched on PC before W10 is just a another way to milk more $$ before that happening...


I will love to play some X1 games while sitting in the throne via surface or laptop, but won't be paying again for full game...

@Ahiru-San: Why would Microsoft do cross buy games for Windows? They don't get a dime when a game sells for Windows unless it's their exclusive. You know that right? Windows isn't a platform, it's an OS. Completely different situation. Windows is a completely open platform and developers don't pay Microsoft anything to use Windows beyond a cheap DirectX license fee (and even that is waived for some developers these days).
