A lot of PC MMO developers have considered moving their titles to next gen consoles. We already know the popular free FPS Blacklight: Retribution will make it to PS4, and rumors have been going around about Planetside 2 hitting console as well.
This early on in the next generation of console it's hard to tell what will actually hit the console and what won't so it's refreshing to see that War Thunder, a free arcade World War 2 flight MMO by Gaijin Entertainment, will make its debut to PlayStation 4 sometime in Holiday 2013.
The game will offer a free experience similar to the PC version, although the game will have 'more intuitive controls' thanks to Sony's Dual Shock 4 controller.
"We're convinced that our cooperation with Sony will not only make the War Thunder franchise better, but it will give our fans a new level of gaming experience that will figuratively blown their mind," Said Kirill Yudintse, Gaijin's creative director.
"Partnering with Sony Computer Entertainment is the most natural progression for the War Thunder brand, from our hugely successful beginnings on PC with more than 1.5 million players, to our recent announcement that War Thunder is under development for mobile devices. We are excited to bring War Thunder to the leading next-generation platform, the PS4."
It's going to be an exciting year for announcements on the next generation of consoles, and we're likely to see many more games hit the PS4 and new Xbox, bridging the gap between PC and console gaming.
