Ubisoft: Launch titles for next-gen are miles better

1 min read

Watch dog phoneThe next generation of consoles are almost upon us. However, previous console launches have taught us that new technology is hard to master, and launch titles rarely utilize the hardware properly. Alain Corre of Ubisoft doesn’t think this will be the case this time around.

Speaking to CVG, Corre explained that Assassin’s Creed and Watch Dogs are already exploiting the capacity of the machines because Ubisoft got to work with Sony and Microsoft early on in development. He goes on to say:

What we see today is that, for the very first time, the first generation of games on [PS4 and Xbox One] will be miles, miles better than the first generation of games we used to have at the launch of previous consoles. That’s why there’s an appetite for next-gen, it’s been many years without a new console and also because the quality of the products proposed at launch are second to none. There are super good games that can give you hours of gameplay and take immersion to the next level, which is really a fantastic way of showing what the technology can do.

I’m actually really curious to see if reactions to Watch Dogs or Assassin’s Creed are varied depending on platform. I’m excited for both games, even though I was seriously burned by the last Assassin’s Creed. I will probably end up playing them on current ten consoles, though, just because of timing with the release of PS4 and Xbox One in South Africa. Do you think the games will be that much better to warrant a replay after upgrading? Will you be upgrading to next-generation consoles right away, or waiting until after the launch window?

    I really hope Watch Dogs brings something like GTAV to the table. In reality? Not sure, can they?

      I hope it doesn’t. I hope it brings some more uniqueness to the table. like a mix of Sleeping Dogs + hacking + Ass Creed and some of GTA qualities

          Nothing will ever reach that scope, GTA is a genre in itself

            True, but I am fine with it not having that scope

        Absolutely. I am not interested in GTA V because I’ve been burned by a bad PC port in the past, and the gangsta vibe doesn’t interest me at all. I am in fact put off by all of the swearing.

        Watch dogs on the other hand has none of that, and I have already pre-ordered it for PC.

    Would love to see what is possible on the next gen , and might get some titles just because of that, even though the games itself might not be that interesting. Watch dogs could possibly be as dull as a sleeping dog.

    I can’t afford a next gen console without selling my current consoles, that and my wife will kill me if I spend 6K on a console while I have 3 sitting on my TV stand.

    So in ALL honesty, is the next gen line-up good enough for you folks? It sure as hell ain’t enough for me to swap yet, not with DS2 next year and some other good titles still coming this gen. I don’t care about cross gen games.

      I will not be able not to give in even just for Housemarque’s Resogun and Killzone in 1080p. But DS2 is even more on my wishlist than those 2.

        Yeah, not to say that their aren’t awesome games, but so far nothing has remotely made me think, I NEED next gen…There is nothing NEW or UNIQUE enough imo

      I’m busy building up quite a nice current gen Library to keep me busy well into next gen. By the time they got their shit sorted, then maybe I will jump onto the next gen bandwagon. Or just get a decent PC…

    What does it matter if 1st release titles are miles better than previous 1st release titles? It matters that they’re better than what’s being released now.

            Ohhhhhhh I think I understand now. You’re comparing a steam room, as used by Master Race nobility, to the sweat shops console peasants toil away in. It’s not the same TROLLOL!

    They will get mixed reactions depending on platform, that”s almost inevitable, especially if you have the opportunity to play both a current gen version and next gen

    I have a serious issue with time and the lack of it, I’ve had GTA now since launch and only managed 15hrs on it, I still want to play Diablo 3 & Ghosts on current gen so while I’m amped for next gen it can wait I still have so much to keep me busy with for the next 6 months or so
