One of the founders of Devolver Digital, the boutique publisher of games like Hotline Miami and Genital Jousting, is eager to see Sony and Microsoft launch their next-generation platforms. Graeme Struthers, who spoke with GameSpot at PAX Australia, said he was pleased with the launch of PlayStation 5 and Xbox Project Scarlett in 2020, in part because these systems are likely to appeal to all large and small developers.
This has not always been the case for Struther, who has been with the company since its inception in 2009, pointing out that the PS3 / Xbox 360 generation is not particularly inviting to indie developers.

One of Devolver's biggest upcoming releases is the crazy, wacky and wonderful-looking Fall Guys game: Ultimate Knockout for PC and PS4, due to launch in 2020.
