After the great success of the first part on the Switch, the lead developer of Moon Studios Gennadiy Korol, in a Reddit AMA, has now commented on a potential port of the second Ori adventure. Lead designer Christ McEntee also spoke about a possible successor to the popular platformer.
Appeared at the beginning of the year Ori and the Will of the Wisps the successor of the extremely successful platformer from 2015 for the PC and Xbox One. With over two million players and a successful switch port of the first part remains open whether Ori and the Will of the Wisps will also get a switch version.
The lead developer Gennadiy Korol commented on this question in a Reddit AMA. He made it clear that a switch port of the second part would prove to be a difficult task. On Xbox One, the title had already had technical difficulties with the frame rate, says Korol, so it would be all the more difficult with the weaker hardware options of the Switch to keep the title running at 60 FPS. Although one would appreciate the switch as a console at Moon Studios, a switch port is currently not in the planning, he added.
Lead designer Chris McEntee also spoke about a potential third part of Ori. No third part is currently in the works, McEntee said. The plan had always been to tell Ori's story in two parts, he explained. The possibility of a third part was left open, but nothing is currently being planned.
