Ubisoft’s U.S. executive director Laurent Detoc has revealed that Ubisoft will strive to release one or two new IPs every year.
“We need to make new IPs,” Detoc told Polygon. “It’s part of our future. From a business point of view we need to continue to create new IPs.
Last year we brought you Rocksmith, and every year you will find one, two, depending on the year, good new IPs from Ubisoft.”
Ubisoft’s latest game, Watch Dogs was announced at E3 2012, stunning crowds near and far, literally stealing the show. But when gamers saw the visuals on display, many thought it was in development for next generation consoles, however Ubisoft clarified the confusion quickly, announcing the promising title would instead be released on PS3, Xbox 360 and PC.
So why not on PS4 and 720?
“There’s no bad time or good time,” continued Detoc.
“If you make something really good, people will embrace it. Watch Dogs turned out to be that game this year that everybody loves. There’s no bad time to bring good content.
At the end of the day, making good products is what we’re after.”
Despite this, many gamers believe Watch Dogs will also be available on next-gen systems, especially after this hint.
