Ubisoft has over 9,000 employees, may be LARGEST VIDEO GAME company right now!
Nice, hopefully this will be reflected in Watch dogs, AC UNITY, The crew, etc. Ubisoft looking good. Theirs only 1 thing they can improve and that is to stop copying ideas of their previous games (i.e. far cry towers, ac synchs, crafting systems, etc,etc)
You forgot to mention the (locate>follow>kill) mission structure in almost every single mission in AC. Gets so damn boring.
That sums up about 90% of Black Flag's missions.
that sums up a lot of games, most games is go kill this go fetch this while killing things. if a game objective is to pick up 5 items usually you have to fight enemies at each point to get the objective item. no matter how its worded you are basically killing things in almost every game so you can reach point c.
Yeah, that's why I fell out of grace with AC. It's a little too monotonous for me.
Quality over quantity
Tbh, they have quality with Quantity, they have a wide variety of awesome games, and all of them are great.
ALl of them you say..including The Fighter Within ?
Not always. Ubisoft does release a few shovelware titles alongside their AAA material.
True but you can't have multiple games at AAA Quality without the high quantity of people to support them. Ubisoft pumps out multiple high quality games every year, they need the manpower to make sure they can keep the train rolling. Otherwise you are correct.
A large studio full of people is a tad different from a large quantity of games being released. That said a huge team of developers is necessary for Ubisoft to produce the amount of games they release each year.
Cool story bro, now give us a great watch dogs experience, or people will say things like "the bigger they are the harder they fall." ;)
Sheesh. Ain't that the truth.
Ubisoft certainly released a lot of good games lately, which are not even remotely as buggy as EA's. This news suits me just fine
Of all the big companies Ubisoft is my favourite. Quality game's.
In before sweeeet disagreeeeees.
What are the big companies? EA, Activision, Ubi, SE,take-two. If these are them take-two and Square are way better than Ubi. IMO Take-Twos Borderlands, GTA, Civ, Bioshock, XCOM and RDR are way better than every Ubi game this gen by far.
Square and Take Two are obviously big as well, but Ubi has the better idea's overall not to mention the superior graphics compared to all those mentioned.
@joe Sorry bud graphics dont make games. No game ever made by Ubi has ever compared to any of those franchises, of course IMO. The only fantastic game they made last gen that blew me away was AC2. The day Ubi makes an open world action game as amazing as GTAV and RDR please let me know because I dont see it happening and same goes for when they make a creative and atmospheric game as good as Bioshock, a fun as hell coop game like Borderlands, or even a turn based game like XCOM and Civ. You ask me Take-Two craps on almost every big name publisher except Nintendo.
Well all I can say to that is let's see what Watchdog's brings to the table. P.S Take-Two doe's crap on Nintendo lol
I like the fact that Ubisoft are still supporting the WiiU also. its all about money these days and they are prepared to wait until the sales pick up on WiiU. Which they will. I will buy Watch Dogs on WiiU instead of my PS4 because of the Gamepad functions. But ONLY if it is NOT a Grand Theft Auto 5 clone with sex and violence being the main theme of the game. Maybe that is why the WiiU version has been delayed. To tone down the game for the Nintendo crowd.
They're turning into the most annoying too!
Who wants to bet that in the distant future, you will see articles saying "Ubisoft lays off 200 people for restructuring purposes." They won't be big for long.
I have a hard time seeing that due to the gaming industry's growth over the past generation.
Unlike lot of people here, I think Ubisoft is the only company that didnt change this generation (ps360) and I hope they never change. Hopefully we see more new and old ips from them in e3 as usual
They make a lot of great games.
not just a lot, but loads!
No wonder they can pump out alot so quickly looking forward to a new rayman on ps4 hopefully and watchdogs and the division.....and assassin creed unity...and the crew....damn ubisoft lol
WHERE IS RAINBOW SIX PATRIOTS? Stop mass producing Assassins Creed
Its coming. We might not see it until E3 2015 I fear.
