'Yet'? 'YET'?

From Software: Next-Gen Dark Souls II Not Considered 'Yet'
If Dark Souls II co-director Yui Tanimura is to be believed, we shouldn't hold our breath for PS4 and Xbox One versions of the RPG. That doesn't mean we shouldn't expect them at all, though.

A recent interview Edge did with Tanimura contains this little nugget:

What would it take to bring the PC version of Dark Souls II to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One?
We have not put any thought into this yet, so I unfortunately canít answer at this point.

Notice the 'yet' there, suggesting that at some point From Software will put some thought into it.

Discussing why the game is current-gen rather than next-, Tanimura said, "At the start of development, we felt that there was still a lot of potential that remained unused in Dark Souls. I hope this can be seen with the demos and footage that we have released. Our intention was to capitalise on the total potential of [seventh-generation] consoles and deliver the game to fans as soon as possible."

To get an idea of how well From Software is doing with that, see this Dark Souls II trailer released yesterday.

"Discussing why the game is current-gen rather than next"

That should be 'last-gen rather than current'
