New developer.

Being developed for "current gen" consoles? ps2 and xbox? If true, very strange.

PS3 and X360 are current gen. Im curious if this developer will do a better job. :)

Everyone still refers to them as "next-gen." Except maybe JoWood.

Pirhana Bytes needs to stump up the cash required to properly finish off Gothic 3 before they go troubling themselves over Gothic 4 development.

I can't believe the Gothic series still gets funded to carry on..... It should have been shot and buried out behind the barn after the first game

Im sure well find out soon what platforms it will be released on. Here is the original Jowood press article:

And here is the first interviews with a member of the new devs:

Its in German though.

A quick translation of one of the Q&As:

Will you develop the game primarily for consoles, or for PC like the past Gothic games?

The graphic cards in the newest PCs exceed the current console technology already again clearly. The focus must apply thus clearly for the PC platform - at least if one wants stay true to the visual requirement of the Gothic series. Whether and when other platforms become an option - one will have to see - Im sure JoWooD will release an announcements will for this.
