If you're expecting the next generation of consoles to change everything, you may be a bit disappointed. Speaking with GamesIndustry International at the Game Developers Conference last month, Ubisoft Montreal CEO Yannis Mallat said he expects a continuation of market trends that have emerged in recent years.

"No B-games" eh? While I commend Ubisoft for their work on the AAA games they bring out, why the heck do they also produce shovelware, like the fitness and Rabbids games?

Well the answer's obvious; "$$$".

well the thing is that the raving rabbids games are developped in ubisoft france, and other shovelware.

while ubi montreal is known for AC, Watchdogs, anything Tom Clancy. But I agree that AC is getting on my nerves.

AC is slowly becoming a "B" game so they better watch it.

Meh Ubisoft has always been hit or miss for a long time now. So sure I guess when I see it happen first. Cause they have made games that probably would be graded lower than a B to begin with.

Just being realistic. Hell I love some of their games but some of them are just terrible. To each their own maybe someone out there loves them all but every game Ubisoft has made has been B's and A's? I don't think so.

I would hope they mean it though. That is bold statement, I will say.

I hate when I click edit and it instead posts the same message twice.

costs are getting higher

I'll take a good B game like Deadly Premonition over their yearly AC releases
