Ready at Dawn have revealed that their PS4 exclusive ‘The Order: 1886’ was in development limbo for quite some time before the console’s dev kits were released. Speaking to Polygon about its Steampunk title, Ready At Dawn creative director Ru Weerasuriya said that the studio had been creating the concept of the game’s world years before the title actually went into development.

The title was put on hold, however, due to the limitations of current generation hardware. Weerasuriy claims that the technology wasn’t capable of achieving the ambitions the studio had. The game, which takes place in an alternate history version of Victorian London, will be Ready at Dawn’s first original IP. The studio is known predominantly for its PSP God of War releases. Claiming that developers don’t change their thinking for different platforms, Ru said “Your thinking is you maximize what is capable on the PSP or PS4 hardware.

The PSP was actually very powerful.” The PS4 title’s release date is yet to be announced and gameplay details are thin thus far, but we’ll keep you informed. In case you missed it, the game’s E3 trailer is below.
