Soomin Park, the franchise head at Amazon Games, revealed a few possibilities for the future of Raiders of the Lost Ark in an interview with VG247. Both Amazon and Smilegate RPG, according to Park, would explore a console port of Raiders of the Lost Ark if it was “something fans really want.”
If there was enough fan demand, Lost Ark might get a console port.
As of now, Lost Ark is only accessible on PC. However, since its release in 2019, it has acquired a sizable fanbase. Park, on the other hand, stated that he was open to the game being ported to consoles. It wouldn’t be impossible to accomplish. Furthermore, it would only increase Lost Ark’s traction and reach among console gamers.
Diablo 3 and Raiders of the Lost Ark have been compared in recent years due to their comparable playstyles. Diablo 3 was a tremendous hit when it was ported to the Xbox and PlayStation platforms. Park also mentioned that Amazon and Smilegate RPG were considering a console port. But only if supporters wished for it to happen.
Park was asked about the rivalry between Lost Ark and Diablo 3 later in the interview by VG27. The rivalry between the two games was acknowledged by Park. “We definitely believe that Lost Ark has a chance to establish itself as a major player, as evidenced by the game’s current level of success,” he said.
If a console port is made, the game will not be released for another few years.
We may assume from the interview that Amazon Games and Smilegate RPG have no intentions for a console port. As Park stated, it all depends on fan demand, and it doesn’t appear that fans are becoming tired of playing the game on PC just yet.
As of this writing, Lost Ark is Steam’s second most popular game of all time. Furthermore, there are about 20 million active participants in the game. If there is a huge desire for a console port, let’s hope there aren’t any major complications like there were before.
