Starbreeze, developer of upcoming shooter “Syndicate” has confirmed that the game will not support DX10/DX11. In a recent interview to PCGamesHardware, Starbreeze confirmed that and said as Syndicate is multiplatform game, a perfect DX11 support needs to be built from the get-go with that API in mind.
Starbreeze said, “We aren’t shipping with DX10/11 support. When we first added support for DirectX, we evaluated both DX9 and DX10, but weren’t convinced that DX10 offered much more than DX9. We have considered adding support for DX11, which is a great API, but to really take advantage of DX11 we believe we would have to fundamentally re-architect large areas of our engine, and this was too risky; instead we focused our resources on ensuring the experience we deliver on DX9 is as good as it can be.”
Syndicate will launch on February 21.
