Microsoft’s main man behind Xbox One and Kinect 2, Albert Penello has revealed that Xbox One games will continue to have loading screens.
“I’m sure there will still be loading screens, when you have these massive worlds and you’re loading a lot of data. But it’s really up to the developer.”
Albert Penello however added that in future he hopes to see games with massive world loading on to consoles without awkward loading times and screen.
“If you look at games like Grand Theft Auto that have these huge open worlds, you very rarely encounter hiccups and loading screens. I think developers are getting more sophisticated, technology’s more sophisticated, and we’re putting things in the hardware to make it easier,” he continued. “I would like to see it, if not go away, at least be significantly reduced.”
Penello gave the example Rockstar Games and Grand Theft Auto series, both of them have proof their metal on PS3 and Xbox 360, it will be interesting to see what the developers can do with PS4 and Xbox One.
