Ubisoft: Reacting To Competition Isn't A Good Idea

Ubisoft has stated that despite Red Dead Redemption's success in the wild west era, they never thought about changing their minds about putting Call of Juarez: The Cartel in a modern setting.

Glad to see a publisher standing behind their decisions.

Yeah, tell that to your team behind Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Conviction and Ghost Recon: Future Soldier....

I don't think I've ever played a stealth game like Splinter Cell: Conviction, GR Advanced Warfare used a cover mechanic way before Gears and Rainbow Six probably still has the best cover mechanic this gen...and that's in a FPS.

Plus GR and R6 have useful squad controls that more FPS and 3PS games should utilize today.

Ubisoft innovates A LOT, it's a shame their games didn't catch on instead of COD as now everyone just copies that open corridor noob model. GR and R6 forced you to strategize and R6 is still one of the best FPS games this gen IMO.

Heh, I agree, they shouldn't have to have a knee-jerk reaction to RDR. Just do their own thing. Whether it's good or not is an entirely different story.

generally reacting to something someone else has pioneered immediately puts you behind

Publishers still do it though, I mean, look at the Medal of Honor reboot. There's no way anyone can say that wasn't influenced by Modern Warfare.

I don't care what Ubisoft says, this is a dumb idea. The last one was EXCELLENT and it was primarily due to the setting. It was different. Now Ubisoft is playing me too with a modern setting.

A serious mistake, and I have ZERO interest in the sequel now.

Might as well call it Call of Juarez: Modern Warfare. Now that is thinking outside the box Ubi!!

they acknowledge that there is no competition to RDR at the moment that's all. but RDR was in competition with it self and Call of Juarez 1+2.

At least RDR wasnt another FPS.

wait a sec i think rockstar never did an FPS...
