Watchdogs may have stolen the E3 press conference for Ubisoft, but the publisher refused to show or reveal any new details on two of the highly anticipated titles of this year.
Brother In Arms: Furious 4 and Rainbow 6 were both announced in 2011, but since then Ubisoft has been very quiet about the two games. This has caused suspicion in players, who now believe that the games might have been canceled.
If you are one of those people who are concerned about the fate of the two titles, rest assured, Ubisoft has confirmed that the titles are not canceled. According to a recent interview with Laurent Detoc, new details on the two titles will be made available during sometime later this year.
When asked about the fate of Rainbow 6 Patriots, Detoc offered more details. He said that the reason why the title made no appearance during E3 is because the publisher had more pressing announcements to make.
He confirms that the title is still not ready for a public showing, and that the publisher was not entirely willing to show a bad demo of the game. The title is being produced by Ubisoft Montreal studios, which have produced several high end titles for the publisher in the pat and Detoc has complete faith in the studios.
Detoc also answered some interesting questions about Watchdogs, the new action/stealth game from the publisher which stole E3 2012. Detoc says the concept of the game is really based on our own world. With social media networking on the rise and search engines keeping a close eye on our browsing behavior, Watchdogs tells the story of a population that is as concerned as we are about our privacy.
Detoc has also confirmed that Ubisoft is paying close attention to the new platforms that are being made available by different manufacturers. He particularly mentioned about Nintendo Wii U and Sony PlayStation Vita, citing both platforms as a great opportunity for the publisher to explore. Detoc has confirmed that we will hear a lot of stuff regarding more games on these two new platforms in the near future.
