Executive Director ensures that there is no magic dust to make great games.
Heres one. No DRM for your games. EDIT: @Zafri Ha, yeah your not funny. @Malo Ubi can continue to make Assassins Creed but not annualized it like Cod. I can't say they're "killing" the series with annualization's because its not true, at least not now anyway. the hardcore and casual are still very much committed to Assassins Creed games. The way I see it, DRM will make its way on to console some how some way. Next gen will bring allot, but also bring strict protocol to households. I didn't know being part of next gen means devs tracking and watching the game that bought with my hard earned money. Rant over: Anyway I'm sure Ubisoft will showcase some new Ip's at E3, can't wait.
Assassin Creed isn't even their flagship series. It all boils down to next gen Tom Clancy titles, Rayman, Farcy, Watchdogs, and whatever other gems their working on behind closed doors. As far as DRM goes, I'm on the fence. On the one hand, I'm pretty confident that all these "always online" and "no used games" rumours are just that, rumours. I've heard that the 99$ Xbox360 setbox Arcade will be always on, and the actual next-gen console will both be abel to go offline and be abel to play used games. If the rumours of always on happen to be true, it must be for good reason, and will obviously herald benefits. My Xbox Live is always hooked up anyways, and my nice new black Xbox360 will easily last another 5-10 years in case I wan't to play offline. But, given how online-focused next gen games will be, and given how I have all but completely stopped playing single player games.... bring on the online!
DRM will be upgradable?
yeah like an assassin creed each year? verry original
Ubi will keep committing resources to Assassins Creed as long as people continue to buy it. I gave up at Assassins Creed 2, but I can understand why they still make them. I know some people who are enjoying AC3.
Just let the Assassins thing go already, gameplay might be similar to part 3, but its not like Ubi didn't take their time with a cool story and setting to put us players in. And after seeing Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon (not to mention watchdogs) I'm totally on board with what Ubi is up too.
Ubi is my favourite developer. I don't think a Tom Clancy title exists for consoles that I have't thoroughly enjoyed. I have it in good faith that UBI will deliver all the way to the bank in the coming years.
