News flash everyone! It seems that Ubisoft wants to earn PC gamers’ trust back. While the French company did let down its PC fans with the recent ports of both Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag and Watch_Dogs, it seems that it may – or may not – fall into the same mistake again.
Speaking with MCV at Gamescom, Ubisoft claimed that it will further optimize its titles, that it will continue to improve how they create and support games for PC, and that it does listen to feedback from players.
“We recognise the importance and needs of PC gamers, and want to continue to improve how we create and support games for PC,” told MCV Ubisoft’s European boss Alain Corre and continued:
“We listen to feedback from players and continue to adapt accordingly; for instance, we switched to a simple, one- time activation for our PC games – a standard practice in the industry. We’re also doing our best to bring our games to PC at the same time as the console versions. Assassin’s Creed Unity and Far Cry 4, for example, will be released simultaneously on console and PC, and this will continue to be the goal for all our major titles.”
Alain concluded that Ubisoft is committed to ‘improving the optimisation of our games for each platform on which they’re released – including PC.’

If Ubisoft wants to earn PC gamers’ trust back then it shouldn’t have any problems answering our questions.
