Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot has confirmed that the French publisher will be abandoning all support for last-generation consoles from 2015 onwards, focusing exclusively on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. Without being hamstrung by the previous gen consoles, this means that the next batch of Ubisoft titles should look better than ever before.
The speed with which core gamers have moved to current generation of consoles has meant that continuing support for the previous generation has become unviable for Ubisoft. The PlayStation 4 alone has shifted more than 10 million units in the eight months since launch, comfortably putting it alongside the Wii in the bestselling console launches of all time. Recent figures disclosed by Ubisoft revealed that the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC accounted for 67% of units sold, showcasing why Ubisoft is so quick to dismiss the 160 million install base for last-gen.
