Ubisoft talks GTA effect

Blockbuster games like Grand Theft Auto V can actually have a positive impact of competing titles like Watch Dogs because players are left eager for more, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot has said.

During an earnings call this week discussing the company's downgraded financial outlook as a result of the delay of Watch Dogs and The Crew into 2014, an analyst asked if "that one big title that came out recently" could negatively impact Ubisoft's results. (Grand Theft Auto V, PS4, Ubisoft, Watch Dogs, Xbox One)

GTA 5 reminded people what a good game is supposed to be, that's why Fifa 14's sales are well below last year's levels.

GTA and Fifa are two very different games.

I know how it went down. The guys who put Watch Dogs as competition to GTA V got a chance to play GTA V and went: "Well...shit."

They're game is probably lacking the little details that makes GTA V immersive.

I agree. I love GTA V and am excited for WD, but I'm pretty sure Ubisoft got caught by surprise.

gta 5 was a hunk of crap rockstar really has lost their touch with the gta series gta 5 offline was ok and that was it and well the online less said the better. you were suppose to be able to do realestate could you no online you could but guess what the online doesn't work. my opion it looked great but that was it story wasn't that good the big thing about gta 5 was about heist and there was like 3 or 4 and most of them you didn't get to choose plan a or b only like 2 of them you could. gta 5 was way over hyped the end and I know im going to get some dislikes but you know what the people that do are just suckers to the game. I have played better ps2 games than that.

Considering watch dogs in another open world, I'm sure after they played Gta v and saw how much Little things made that game a little more realistic is crazy, that when they realize they needed more time for the watch dogs
