Ubisoft to deliver SIX next-gen games in 12 monthsPlatforms: Android
The uber-publisher plans to deliver at least SIX next-gen games for Xbox One during the system’s first twelve months. And on Sony's PS4, presumably.
Today, following the announcement of Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, Ubisoft revealed that two of its most highly-anticipated titles – Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag and Watch Dogs – will be available on the platform later this year. We already learnt they'll be on the PS4. Ubisoft also announced that these titles will be among at least six next-gen games released for Xbox One in the system’s first year.
“The next generation of consoles will reinvigorate our industry and make it possible for us to deliver incredible new entertainment to gamers,” said Yves Guillemot, co-founder and chief executive officer, Ubisoft. “Our teams are using the innovations in connectivity, immersion and social gaming included in Xbox One to create original and memorable next-gen gaming experiences.” Notice old Yves says CONSOLES, so yeah this is PS4 too.
In addition to Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag and Watch Dogs, Ubisoft will deliver a mix of new episodes of existing franchises, new IPs and digital titles for Xbox One. We hate to keep repeating ourselves but it'll all be on the PS4 too. This is not EA, or Activision. Had there been anything exclusive we would have heard about that today. Ubi's products are too big-time not to get that kind of focus.
