Ubisoft to stop making PS3 games by 2015

In an interview with GameInformer, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot has confirmed that the company willl stop supporting the PlayStation 3 by 2015, in order to decrease costs.

Guillemot said how Ubisoft's plans to lower its overheads.

"Part of this reduction in cost is really coming from the fact that this year we had to create games for many platforms, next-year we'll start to reduce that, and after that it won't happen. And so we, what we feel is that what we will do is create games for in the next two Christmas for the current generation, but there's a chance we stop after that. We won't stop all the games, but most of the product will be next-generation."

The story is too old to be commented.

If people are still buying PS3 games they will continue making them.

not if the cost doesn't justify it

If consumers will still be purchasing on previous systems in high numbers then the cost is justified. They will go or stay where the money is until so and transition accordingly.

This title takes the statement out of context to create the illusion that it was directed specifically at the PS3. The actual quote is:

"Part of this reduction in cost is really coming from the fact that this year we had to create games for many platforms, next-year we'll start to reduce that, and after that it won't happen. And so we, what we feel is that what we will do is create games for in the next two Christmas for the current generation, but there's a chance we stop after that."

He is referring to all: PS3, Xbox 360 and the original Wii.

@Eonjay TBF that's correct, but the site is a PS site so they're not interested in xbox or wii, but presented here it looks skewed. I'm sure that wasn't the intention.

The cost will be justified if the titles that they are developing for PS3 are still having high sales numbers. Trust me. If consumers are buying then Ubi will be producing.

Nah, I prefer them to move over to next gen consoles. The PS3 library is vast enough to cater to late adopters even at this stage. Heck, GTA V. 'nuff said.

what is with the logic of some of you people lol?

Company says something
Consumer: lies, I know best!

tf?

I always knew they were 360 fans. /s

I wonder how many more years we'll get COD's for current gen. I know Fifa 14 is the final PS2 game so that'll be going on for a while.
