Ubisoft Focusing on AAA Titles
Ubisoft has a fairly good reputation in the eyes of many gamers. Sure, they've published/developed a few bad games, but they make up for those with blockbuster ones. Fortunately, we've been told we'll only be getting the latter for now. Ubisoft CEO, Yves Guillemot says "With next gen consoles, it's going toward bigger games, and yes, we will make less of them." Sounds like quality over quantity, which will most likely be a good thing.
He also spoke out about the next generation of consoles, saying:
“Generally, next generation consoles pick up what's interesting in the world around them – they look at what the PC experiences are, what the mobile experiences are, they look at the social elements … and then manufacturers come up with a unit that you can put in front of the TV but that takes advantage of all the innovations that have happened since the last generation, and at a price that is accessible. So for sure, the machines will be more powerful, but we can expect this generation – because they took quite a long time – to actually come with something really new, really interesting that will boost the market enormously.”
Sounds interesting as well as exciting! Here's hoping we'll see more big blockbusters from Ubisoft soon, and with the likes of Far Cry 3 and Assassins Creed 3 coming out this year, that's a pretty safe bet.
