In a recent interview Replay Studios founder Marc Moehring revealed that the current PC market is not healthy and that the German developer will move to console-only titles after it wraps up Velvet Assassin.
*Do you think that the offline PC market is still healthy?

MM: It’s not healthy. The problem is that we are not a huge team, and there are already a lot of good multiplayer games out there, so we're not looking to copy them.

Our game is very story-driven. From an atmosphere perspective it’s very deep, has a nice story and gives you fifteen to twenty hours of gameplay, so I think it’s different than other online World War II games. For a very story-heavy PC and Xbox 360 game, we think Velvet Assassin will work. For the future, I don’t know, but we will go for online for sure.

*So you’re looking into that now?

MM: Yes. We have two concepts. We are a second episode of Velvet Assassin to continue the story -- we have a lot of great ideas for that. We’re also working on our new game called Survivor, and we’re also going with that. That'll be just for next-gen consoles with no PC versions planned.

We are the first team in Germany that’s going console-only. Other teams are trying to keep making PC versions of games, but the PC market is not healthy enough.

*Even in Germany?

MM: Yes. It’s going down more to console. I think it’s better for us because with PC you have all these compatibility problems – new graphic cards, new PC chips, new system versions. It’s hard to handle, with a small team.

Polar opposite of what Valve or Blizzard say, but it's closer to the truth. I mean sticking up for your platform of choice is one thing, but when someone denies reality, it's incredibly annoying.

Replay Studios have not created a single good game yet, Velvet could be first decent game from them.

Maybe if they would make good games they would sell better

Why make good games when they can sell **** games on consoles and make money? Next game will be for Wii probably.

Its a prequel for AC when Altair was just a novice assassin.
