Neverwinter Online Confirmed For Western Console Release
Yesterday we reported that Perfect World Entertainment would be releasing Neverwinter Online on the Xbox One in China later this year. Thankfully the developers quickly followed up with another announcement confirming the 2015 release for Neverwinter Online on Xbox One in North America and Europe.
"Neverwinter is our premier title to bring to console players,” said Perfect World Entertainment CEO, Alan Chen. “Consoles are a perfect fit for action-oriented MMORPGs like Neverwinter, and we are thrilled to be one of the first publishers to bring premium free-to-play titles to leading next-gen platforms. Being able to bring Neverwinter to the Xbox One is a critical achievement for Perfect World. It is our first step taking our games beyond the PC market.”
It's one of the leading titles in PWE's arsenal so it's no surprise to see the developers wanting to push it to consoles and as the first free-to-play MMORPG on Xbox One, there's a good chance it will prove as popular on console as it does on PC.
