Albion Online hints at a console launch and discusses future plans in an AMA

It was less than a year ago that we last saw a new game developer sign up to the Albion Online community, and the case has been largely the same since then. Albion Online is now a year old, and the devs have been very quiet about their upcoming plans for the game. The new devs have not said anything in terms of a console version, and some have expressed skepticism over whether the game is even going to be ported to the PS4 or Xbox One. That may be for all the wrong reasons, as some developers have been known to deliberately spread false rumors about their games being ported to the consoles to drive up excitement.

Albion Online is a massively multiplayer online game developed by Sandbox Interactive and being published by Sandbox Interactive and Actoz Softworks. It was released on March 6th, 2017 and is currently in early access. The game allows players to create their own character and explore the lands of Albion. Albion Online is a sandbox game, which means it does not have a linear storyline like other MMORPGs.

The Earth and Stars is a Minecraft fan site that regularly posts about Albion Online and other MMOs on its Minecraft server.

With Albion Online now hitting mobile, the devs at Sandbox Interactive felt now was as good a time as any to open themselves up to questsions in an AMA about any topic fans felt the need to talk about.

One of the more interesting answers was about a possible console launch, with the devs saying “it is quite likely that we’ll bring Albion to consoles, but we do not have any specific plans for this yet and it almost certainly would not happen within the next 12 months.” For the time being, the team is focused on adding new content.

On the subject of new content, there is promise of improvements to crafting and gathering, particularly an adjustment to the reroll system for crafters and node improvements and resource maps that lead to high-yield areas for gatherers. There’s also plans for new weapons and the promise of deeper PvE features. The next dev update vlog will talk about where game updates are going next.

The AMA was also a source for players to air their grievances, with one Redditor remarking about perceived favoritism for certain large guilds in its AlbionTV broadcasts, which drew this response from the devs:

“AlbionTV tries to not just rattle down game facts but also provide context and commentary on what’s happening in the world. In such an environment, it’s pretty much impossible to appear ‘unbiased’ to all of your viewers. What seems totally justified to some viewers might feel biased to others, and vice versa. That’s a problem that essentially all real world news channels have as well.

“What I can absolutely assure you of is that – as developers – there is zero reason for us to be unfair or biased to any group with in the game. Our sole goal is to make the game and its environment as good as we can, our bills to do not get paid by one player group in the game liking us more than another – that’s not why we have [built] Albion over the past nine years.”
