Hatred, the new PC game by Polish developer Destructive Creations, is currently causing controversy due its violent theme of mass murder, though that’s not stopped the indie studio from considering bringing its isometric shooter to Xbox One and PS4 at some point in the future.
Hatred focuses on the slaughter of civilians by a man driven by pure hatred. Judging by the announcement trailer, the tone is extremely dark and the gameplay very bloody and brutal, but the indie studio makes no excuses for pushing the boundaries, saying that the game “takes no prisoners and makes no excuses.”
In the official press release, Destructive Creations tells us how the idea of Hatred came about:
“Destructive Creations is an experienced indie team that, in times where a lot of games are heading to be polite, colorful, politically correct and trying to be some kind of higher art, rather than just an entertainment, wanted to create something against trends. Something different, something that could give the player a pure gaming pleasure. This is how the idea of Hatred – the team’s first game, was born”.
PSU contacted Destructive Creations CEO Jarosław Zieliński to ask whether he had any plans to bring Hatred to consoles. Though he said they would “love to” he also stated that the development team right at this moment is too small, but it would be a consideration “in the future”. We pressed a little further: “So, if Hatred sells well on PC, this could be a possibility, right? As you’d be able expand the team?” we asked. “Yep, exactly,” said Jaroslaw.
So, if Hatred does well on PC, which it probably will do judging by the attention it has already received, then it could well get the green light to appear on consoles. Is this the sort of game you’d want to see on PS4, or does the idea of mass-murdering innocent people upset you?
