Ubisoft cutting down on FPS games

Are hardcore FPS titles going out of style? According to Ubisoft, yes. Phil Therien of Ubisoft made a comment that first-person shooting games do not provide enough revenue to warrant the development process of these games.

Arguably, this is due to the overwhelming success of casual games. Will more companies follow in the steps of Ubisoft?

hopefully the fps titles will thin out. I am glad to see that more quality titles of various genres are being published and sold. But there will always be the halos, R6, WWII shooters. now if there would just always be the Bioshocks, then it would be all good.

i doubt other companies will follow their steps... FPS is my favorite genre. i dont really like any other genres except for sports. i think that FPS is too popular for companies to pass on...

Thats called wishfull thinking, i dont think it will thin out or anything but i dont think it will expand either.
