Ubisoft seems all but ready to embrace the next generation of gaming and are welcoming the PS4 and the Xbox One (as well as the Wii U, I think) with open arms. Ubisoft executive director Alain Corre spoke with CVG and said that Ubisoft’s launch titles for the Xbox One and PS4 will be of higher standards than what has come before in the previous generations.
“It does take time to master new technology,” said Corre. “but this time we’ve been able to partner with Sony on PS4 and Microsoft on Xbox One early. We’ve been able to understand the core architecture of the console and have aligned our production capacities and creativity on what we feel they can bring.”
“What we see today is that, for the very first time, the first generation of games on [PS4 and Xbox One] will be miles, miles better than the first generation of games we used to have at the launch of previous consoles.”
Corre also talked about how their open-world games like Watch Dogs and Assassin’s Creed 4 are benefiting from the capacity and power of the newer consoles.
“Assassin’s Creed and Watch Dogs are exploiting a good amount of the capacity of the machines already. Of course, over the years it will improve and our engineers will find some tricks to better create in the future, but at launch there are very good games.”
