Ubisoft CEO: We Have a Pipeline of Games of Very High Quality Coming to the Wii U
Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot calms what most Wii U owners are feeling right now.
Following news that Ubisoft's Rayman Legends is getting delayed and won't be a Wii U exclusive anymore, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot comments that they have "a pipeline of games of high quality" coming to the Wii U.
In an interview with IGN, Guillemot states, "We have a pipeline of games of very high quality coming on that machine, like Rayman Legends, which makes fantastic use of what the machine can do." Sadly, he doesn't mention what and when these games will come to light.
Of course, you can't talk to the CEO of one of the world's biggest videogame publishers and not talk about next-gen. In the same interview, Guillemot reveals that he thinks third-party exclusivity will be a thing of the past once next-gen gaming rolls around.
On the very big games you will see less platform exclusives happen in the future generation because of the potential, the possibilities of next-generation PCs and the next-generation of consoles will bring...That’s for the big games. For the smaller games, like you have on Xbox Live Arcade or PSN, you will probably still see some exclusive games.
Seeing how high game development budgets are now these days, I wouldn't be surprised if Guillemot's statements come true.
Regarding the Wii U, could Ubisoft be porting Rayman Legends to the PS3 and Xbox 360 since sales of the console have been lukewarm as of late? Whatever the reason is, it's not just WIi U fans but even the game's developers who aren't happy with the idea.
