Hi-Rez Studios recently launched the open beta of its free-to-play online shooter Paladins on PS4 and Xbox One after a successful run on PC, but what about other consoles?

DualaShockers had a chance to chat with Senior Producer Todd Harris, who is also Hi-Rez’s Co-founder and COO, and first of all we asked whether the studio is planning to implement dedicated support for Microsoft’s upcoming new machine code named Project Scorpio.

Harris mentioned that Scorpio “looks like great technology” and the studio is “scoping effort” on possible support, but they’re not ready to commit on it just yet.

On the other hand, a port for Nintendo Switch isn’t on the menu for the moment:

“Not at this time.  The current focus is PC/Mac, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.”
