If you been following Ubisoft related news you should already know that the company has delayed all of its upcoming titles. This comes to no surprise since the recent Ubisoft titles underperformed across all platforms. According to VGC, Ubisoft is restructuring the editorial team in order to make game more ‘unique’.
Some of you have probably already played some of the latest games from Ubisoft. So you might have noticed similarities across all titles. Luckily Ubisoft did notice as well, even if they took their time getting there.
“We are reinforcing our editorial team to be more agile and better accompany our development teams around the world as they create the best gaming experiences for players”.
According to VGC the editorial team had influence across all Ubisoft games, which lead towards open-world and systemic games with online features. It also insisted that narratives should have a thematic basis in the real world, while avoiding taking a political stance.
“In the previous system that editorial had, there were often the ideas of just one or two people getting put into every game. That’s why you tended to see such similarity, because it’s the same taste and opinion being replicated”.
Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot said they need to allow more development time for each title and introduce unique gameplay innovations. He also said that they need to insure that every game is different from each other.
Well you don’t say! Let us hope this is the first step for Ubisoft towards the old glory days, when games like Prince of Persia, Splinter Cell, Rainbow Six and Ghost Recon were among the very best.
