Ubisoft wants to be better at PC games
Ubisoft has often been scrutinized for releasing unoptimized PC ports of recent Ubisoft titles like Assassin’s Creed 3 and Black Flag, and the company has a whole new plan for releasing better PC ports of future games. Speaking to MCV, Ubisoft executive Alain Corre acknowledged that there’s still work to be done, and Ubisoft wants to do it.
“We recognize the importance and needs of PC gamers, and want to continue to improve how we create and support games for PC,” he said.
“We listen to feedback from players and continue to adapt accordingly.” Examples include the switch to one-time activation DRM, and more parity in release dates. “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,” Corre said. You can expect Far Cry 4 and Assassin’s Creed: Unity to release on PC among other platforms later this year.
