Rumor: TERA destined for Xbox One, PS4 console ports

We’ve updated the end of this post with En Masse’s statement to Massively OP.

Is TERA one of the MMORPGs announcing a leap to the console market this year? MMO Culture’s report this morning suggests that it just might be. New job postings on a South Korean recruiting board indicate that studio Bluehole is on the hunt for a “Technical Lead role to lead the porting project of Bluehole’s globally successful PC MMORPG title TERA into PS4 and Xbox One […] Bluehole is expanding rapidly into mobile, console, and even for VR.”

We’ve reached out to En Masse (Bluehole’s western subsidiary) for a statement and will update when we know more.

Source: MMO Culture
Update: En Masse has sent Massively OP a statement neither confirming nor denying work on a console port.

“While En Masse doesn’t speculate on rumors, our parent company Bluehole is always exploring new and exciting avenues with their games. There is no official announcement at present to make about the future of the TERA franchise, but we look forward to continuing our adventures in the world of TERA as much as our fans do.”

Rohirrim I’ll still use my PC. But allow controllers with a good UI on PC, and I’ll connect my PC to my TV and it all works.

Good for them.  Surprised they hadn’t made the transition to consoles sooner.

Neial5546 Microsoft has more than agreed. They actually popped the question to Sony themselves. It’s Sony who’s dragging their feet now.

Estranged Leilonii The PC market is flooded, and more importantly, I think the PC market of gamers are eventually going to die out anyway. Consoles are less intimidating to casual gamers than PCs, what with needing to learn how to tweak settings and such to make a game work decent on a PC. Aside from that, most AAA developers are developing their games primarily for consoles these days anyway, with the PC ports making it in to the show almost as a messy, bug filled Beta version.

TERA would actually be extremely well suited for a console MMO, I think.
