High Voltage Software reveals that the once Wii-exclusive shooter will be available on other platforms.
In an interview with IGN, High Voltage Software CEO Kerry Ganofsky and chief creative officer Eric Nofsinger have confirmed that The Grinder, a first-person horror shooter first announced last year, will no longer be a Wii exclusive. The title, which HVS hopes to finish by Halloween 2011, will now be released for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC as well.
When asked as to why the once Wii-exclusive title is now a multiplatform release, Nofsinger explained that, "Bringing our third internal IP to all the current-generation systems allows us to show off what our company can really do and get it into the hands of the most gamers." As to the differences between the Wii version and the other versions, Kerry told IGN "We'll show you first at GDC."
As for The Grinder's Halloween 2011 release, Eric expressed to IGN that "It is a long time… but given the sheer amount of quality content needed to make a game of this type, our game design scope, our team size, and the amount of time we have designated for polishing the game, we are confident that this schedule allows us to meet our expectations for the game."
