Ubisoft's Yannis Mallat | GRTV Interview

Ubisoft Montreal's Yannis Mallat was interviewed by GRTV during GDC. Mallat said the following of THQ Montreal and their integration:

"Well you know, they're a part of the Ubisoft family now. And we were happy to welcome those 170 employees, who are already hard at work on a Ubisoft unannounced project."

Of next-gen he said:

"It was indeed a long cycle, it actually is, probably much longer than we anticipated or I would say hoped for. That being said, we on the Ubisoft side, had no other choice than to rely on our own vision of what this so-called next-gen could be. And we were very much relieved when first met with Sony to see that this vision was shared. So we didn't wait and you know a few years ago we decided to invest on high-end PC and have our creative teams empowered in what could come next. And I think that this move is really what helped us to be able to show some playable code at the Sony event. That speaks for itself in terms of where we are." (Next-Gen, PS4, Ubisoft, Xbox One)
