The new generation will undoubtedly deliver better technology and even more amazing graphics.
But is it safe to assume the current consoles are maxed out? Many believe the Xbox 360 has long since hit the technological wall but the PlayStation 3 still has some life left. Probably accurate.
That being said, Dishonored developer Arkane Studios believes both consoles have more to offer and "it's not really a bottleneck." In speaking to GamingBolt , game designers Raphael Colantonio and Harvey Smith spoke about the current state of development with the "old" systems.
"Technology is not really the bottleneck, and developers have not come close to maxing out what could be done. The photo-realism graphics race eats up a lot of hardware bandwidth for what could be used for interesting, different features and styles of gameplay. That said, new hardware is always exciting."
It's always interesting to hear how designers will approach new hardware, and how they're looking to get the most out of the current machines. Dishonored is slated to drop next week and while it may not be the best-looking game you'll ever see, it still looks pretty dang good.
