Speaking with Polygon, Ouya founder and CEO Julie Uhrman said that we should expect an“Ouya 2.0″, with an updated controller for the Android-powered console, to launch sometime next year.
However, she added that the date hasn’t been finalized just yet, nor has the firm determined “what exactly we want that to be”…
“Our plan is to have Ouya 2.0 sometime next year, we haven’t finalized the date of that,” she said. “We’re still determining what exactly we want that to be.
“The software is constantly iterating because we want to make it constantly better. We don’t want to wait six months and then go boom here are all these new features and functionality For the hardware, we are looking at different chips. We are looking at what type of performance we want.”
They are updating the controller based on user feedback. The triggers, thumbsticks and the feel of the controller have all been tweaked.
“We want to provide a great experience to gamers and developers,” she said. “So we want to improve our controller to make it so. If it doesn’t happen that way, yeah, maybe we will abandon [the controllers] and allow you to pair anything you want with Ouya, because ultimately it’s what’s great for gamers.
“Part of that is taking that feedback, iterating that software, fixing the triggers, fixing the thumbsticks and if that doesn’t work, we’ll iterate it again and if we decide that’s not the right path, we’ll change it. I think that’s one thing that differentiates us. We don’t have this firm path we’re going to stay on come hell or high water. We take the feedback from gamers, from developers and we iterate and we change. When it’s not working we say so.”
