At Playstation E3 2014 press conference, Paradox Interactive announced Magicka 2 for Playstation 4 and not for Xbox One. Today, Paradox CEO Fredrik Wester has revealed the reason behind the deal. Wester revealed that Sony were more focused on hardcore gamers than Microsoft, when the "Magicka 2 for Playstation 4" deal was signed.
In an interview to GameSpot at E3 2014, Wester said: "I think the fact that we had some personal connections with Sony and we also felt that their offerings toward the hardcore gamers that we were after were more solid than the ones Microsoft had"
However all hopes are still not lost for Xbox One owners as Wester further stated that Paradox wants to be on all platforms where gamers are, and deal with Sony for Magicka 2 is timed exclusive.
"Now I think, looking back at it, it's probably quite equal. But back then, it sounded like Sony had a more solid offering. But we hope to go to the Xbox One as well. We want to be on all platforms where are gamers are."
"We'll see if Microsoft is still interested in working with Magicka when that time is up. We'd be happy to bring it to the Xbox One."
