Exclusive Focus on Console Development for Undisputed Boxing

Steel City Interactive is dedicated to bringing undisputed boxing to console platforms, marking the primary focus of the game’s development at present.

Steel City Interactive’s CEO Speaks on Current Game Development

In a recent interview, Steel City Interactive CEO and Co-Founder Ash Habib discussed the current state of Undisputed’s development and the reason for ceasing major feature additions to early access.

“Fully Focused on Console Development”

Habib stated, “We’re fully focused on our console development. We’re going through that process right now in terms of getting us to that version one launch on consoles.”

“Navigating the Console Development Path”

“Launching the game on Steam or PC platforms is a completely different ballgame when it comes to consoles,” Habib explained. “So we’re just navigating that path at the moment.”

Continuous Improvements for Early Access Players

“While the update that added Career Mode and Character Creator was the last with major features, it won’t be the final update for players in early access,” Habib confirmed.

“Gameplay Balances and Polishing”

“We are going to make some gameplay balances,” he said. “I would love to still develop and add more features to early access, but then it’ll be a trade off between taking resources off console and putting them into things that we want to see. That’s always been the tradeoff.”

Console Release Timeline

Regarding a console release timeline, Habib declined to provide a specific date.

“Setting Realistic Expectations”

“We’ve got a few milestones as far as our console process goes,” Habib said. “What I don’t want to do is put a date on here and then something happens or there’s an issue that we’ve really got to look at and it sets us back.”

“Providing Reasonable Progress Updates”

“What I would is the fact that we’ve said there’s no major updates coming in; the fact that we’re now focusing on polish, bugs, and gameplay balancing. That in itself should give a reasonable idea that we’re not a million miles away.”

Undisputed Boxing in Early Access: Now Available on Steam

The game is currently available in early access via Steam. Upon release on console platforms, it will be accessible on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S.
