Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty Won’t Come to Xbox 360 or Xbox One

The remake of Abe’s Oddysee, called Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty, will be coming to PlayStation 3, PS Vita, PlayStation 4, Wii U, PC, Mac and Linux. What two consoles seem to be missing?

According to Eurogamer, Microsoft is sticking “with its policy of forcing developers to partner with a publisher in order to bring games to their platform.”

Fans of Abe’s Oddysee who own an Xbox 360, or are looking to get an Xbox One, will need to look at other platforms in order to play the remake of the game, which might be frustrating for them. Lorne Lanning of Oddworld Inhabitants also seems a bit frustrated at Microsoft’s policy.

“There are those who are looking at next quarter’s profits, and maybe one of these big guys looks like that’s all they’re doing right now,” Lanning said.

What’s even worse is that they’ve already gotten a license for the Xbox One, but can’t do anything without a publisher.

Sony’s policy, however, allows indie developers to self-publish on the PlayStation Network, making them seem like the more indie-friendly platform.

But in an another interview with Eurogamer, Microsoft’s Phil Spencer said, “Our ears are open on self-publishing and other changes and advancements in our publishing ecosystem, but I don’t want to stand up and commit to things that aren’t plan of record now. That would be wrong.”
