Standing Stones' Undying Playstation2 FAQ
Will there be any console ports of Undying?
No, on May 30th, 2001, VoodooExtreme.com found out that the port had been cancelled. The rest of the information below is therefore no longer accurate, but still remains for interest's sake.
Who is developing it?
Electronic Arts Los Angeles (EALA), same people who developed the PC version of Undying.
When is it supposed to be released?
Last known release date was October 2001.
Did they decide to make the port after releasing the PC version?
No, certain development decisions were made while developing for the PC to better accomodate porting the game. Additionally, the PC version shipped with some assets from the PS2 version, such as menu graphics. You can see these using the editing tools.
Will anything be different from the PC version?
Nothing is known for sure about the port. However, EALA has said in interviews that the reason the PC levels were small with frequent level transitions was to better prepare the levels for the PS2 version. The PS2 has less memory than standard PC's and no swap file, so games for the console can't have massive individual map files. It stands to reason then that the levels themselves won't change in size, at least.
Will the PS2 version have multiplayer?
Unknown. Seems unlikely since the PC version doesn't.
