According to Capcom
Shocking news we have here with Capcom's Masaru Ijuin declaring that developing a game for PS4 or Xbox One takes 8-10 times the time of developing for older platforms
This is a curious thing, when the next-gen consoles (PS4, Xbox One) were announced, both Microsoft and Sony declared that programming games for them will be easier than ever, thanks to the PC-architecture approach. Now, we know that at least Capcom is not agreeing with that. Masaru Ijuin, Capcom's Senior Manager of Technology Management has said in an interview that developing a next-gen game is 8 to 10 times more time consuming than doing the same for the last gen consoles.
This was declared on a interview about the new "Phanta Rhei" engine that Capcom is developing to replace the "MT Framework". You can read it in full following the link below.
