Original Hotline Miami coming to PS4

Cross-Buy support will allow existing PlayStation owners to play for free

Publisher Devolver Digital has revealed plans to release the original Hotline Miami on PS4.

The game, which launched on PS3 and Vita in June 2013, will continue to support Cross-Buy, meaning existing PlayStation owners will be able to pick up the PS4 version at no extra cost.


Devolver's Nigel Lowrie told Destructoid in a video interview: "We're going to bring Hotline Miami 1 to PS4... and we're going to keep it Cross-buy because we feel that if the user has already bought it for a PlayStation platform, they have the right to own it on Vita, on PS4, on PS3. It's different on PlayStation to PC because they're totally different environments."

Development of the PlayStation versions of the title was previously handled by Dutch studio Abstraction Games under the guidance of original creator Dennaton Games.

Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number is set for release in the third quarter of 2014. The sequel takes place following the events of the original and is billed as the "grand finale".

"You're a murderer, you murder people. Again. And again," reads the official blurb. "How certain you are of your actions and what is, and what is not, real is what you must determine in Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number."

"Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number commands you to step into the murderous minds of several distinct characters - each with their own motivations and methods of execution - as storylines intersect and reality slips away into a haze of neon and carnage."
