The Rise of Ubisoft

As the next ‘day of Christmas’ passes, the Daily Reaction crew of Sebastian Moss and Dan Oravasaari discuss today’s portion of the Twelve Days of Christmas carol – Three French hens. With that, we go over France’s biggest developer and publisher, Ubisoft, and talk about their history, where they have shone, failed, and where they are going. (Assassin's Creed, Industry, Next-Gen, PC, PS3, Ubisoft, Watch Dogs, Wii U, Xbox 360)

Ubisoft have grown so much over the past decade, it's crazy. Wonder where they'll be in another decade.

I just hope they continue creating interesting new IPs instead of rehashing them year after year.
doctorstrange  +   837d ago
Well they'll be making more Assassin's Creeds in 10 years, I bet
Foolsjoker  +   837d ago
I am ok with more Assassin's Creed, I just want more things like Watch Dogs to keep coming.

Seriously who cares when they can manage to keep things fresh and even innovative with sequels ?

Farcry 1-3 were sequels (well they still published the first 1) , yet vastly different from each other , and even more different from the rest of gaming landscape

Can't wait to see what they do on the animation front..that department deserves some major props..Splinter Cell and Assassins Creed next gen I'm ready.

"who have essentially killed their Prince of Persia series"
Almost all the PoP games are good/great; what are they talking about.

ONE thing i love about ubisoft is that they make new ips constantly, but god i wish they would make a sequel to prince of persia 08, or a good one at least because forgotten sands was mediocre besides the wii version.

most of the good ubisoft games are directly from Ubisoft Montreal, the title should be "The Rise of Ubisoft Montreal"

The thing with Ubisoft (and mostly Assassin's Creed) is that they don't have only one studio working on a game but use its worldwide network of developers. For example, ACs are typically made by like 5 studios including Annecy for multiplayer, and Singapore for exotic gameplay like the ship gameplay in AC 3.

Ubisoft really caught my attention with Splinter cell Chaos Theory.

Ghost Recon: Jungle Storm was the first Ubisoft game I ever played, and it was an awesome experience playing the online competitive and co-op modes.
