Yesterday we reported that Limbo
may be PSN-bound, if a Korean Game Ratings Board listing
sought by Sony Computer Entertainment Korea is any indication. We reached out to developer Playdead for comment and CEO and co-founder Dino Patti got back to us today confirming the news.
"This might be the second time around we have been waiting for," Patti said, referencing his quote from last May
in which he said, "You won't see a PS3 or PC version this time around." Patti said that "Limbo is in production for Steam and PSN, and is coming very soon." With a release date of "very soon" he predictably said more details would be coming shortly.
The small Playdead team is handling both ports itself, while also working on a new IP
. "To be honest, we want as many people to play our games as possible," Patti told us last year at the Indiecade festival. "If we end up going exclusive, we may do it for various reasons, but we just want as many people to play the game as possible."
