Ubisoft is best known for its Triple A titles like Assassins Creed and Splinter Cell. The company which has published 100s of successful titles earlier said that the Triple A games were dying. The reason behind this statement was that Triple A games required a lot of funds and efforts to produce.
With the announcement, Ubisoft was ready to bring more casual titles to the hands of gamers. To show off what they had in mind, the publisher revealed a host of new online browser only games based on its popular franchises like Heroes of Might and Magic.
Today however the CEO of Ubisoft, Yves Guillemot had something else to say. He now announces that with the next generation consoles, Ubisoft will be producing bigger and better titles, but he also warned that the quantity of those titles will be significantly lesser than the current situation.
Guillemot is looking forward for the next generation consoles. He believes that the manufacturers are closely studying what the current generation of video games offer to the players. Keeping in mind all the visual, social and mobile experiences, the new consoles will definitely try to combine all these elements to produce something that will have all those factors with an affordable price.
Nintendo has already announced the release date of their new console the Wii U. And just like Guillemot says, the manufacturer has come up with a console that offers portability, social options and brand new experiences. Now it is only a matter of time when Sony and Microsoft will also reveal their new next generation hardware.
But with next generation hardware, we already know that the new machines will be more powerful, which means that the developers will have a hard time creating Triple A titles to live up to the expectations of the fan. With today’s announcement from Ubisoft, we can assume that there will be less games but with quality that will take our breath away. Good luck to Ubisoft in producing great titles for the next generation consoles.
