Ubisoft confirms today that it will not make games for the last-gen consoles come 2015.
In an interview with Game Informer, CEO Yves Guillemont confirmed that Ubisoft will abandon last-gen console games come 2015.
“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,” Guillemot said. “After 2015, it will be hard for us to create games for those systems.”
Surprised at how quickly gamers have upgraded to the current gen, Guillemont states that Ubisoft’s development course over the next year is more obvious than ever and he is very confident about them.
Guillemont also stated that while Ubisoft won’t entirely abandon Nintendo consoles, it will definitely begin to streamline and focus more on popular games for the Wii U such as Just Dance. While Watch Dogs will head over to Wii U, it will be the only mature game Ubisoft publishes on the platform.
