This is good news for gamers who are still holding out on purchasing a new console, but if you were hoping that Ubisoft will be repeating this practice in the future, you could be disappointed. Speaking to GameInformer, Ubisoft’s CEO Yves Guillemot does not sound particularly keen on developing games for the PS3 or the Xbox 360 down the line.
According to Guillemot, “What we see is that this year is still fine for the PS3 and 360. But next year because they are selling very quickly, we’ll move to the new hardware. After 2015, it will be hard for us to create games for those systems.” From his statement, it sounds like 2015 could be the last year that Ubisoft creates games for older consoles.
Of course this will differ for other developers who still believes in creating games for current-gen consoles, but if you’re still on the fence, perhaps it’s time to make a decision on which platform you’ll want to get next.
