Ubisoft has just issued a press release announcing the departure of Chief Creative Officer Serge Hascoët, as well as multiple other high-level executives.
I just read : "Ubisoft has just announced the departure of several high-level exclusives" I was like : lol wut??!!
You know you are a traumatised console warrior when you read this lol
Good.. lets be professional and keep all that negativity out of the creativity.
Maybe one silver lining is replacing these execs with people who'll stop milking their AAA franchises to heaven and actually commit to making quality games instead of yearly products.
Can we hope for a legit new Splinter Cell now?
they too busy making Assassin Creed every freaking year
Yeah it's criminal how long we've gone without. A new one could totally redefine the stealth genre
Tbh all the big developers need to do this. The gen has been the poorest I can remember on new ips. We have had a few but most were pants and everything was put into YOY games or F2P. Personality the wiiu had the most enjoyable games this gen and this console was seen as a flop.
I doubt an executive change will shake up the companies enough to have them start investing in more new IP's. When Phil Spencer said that SP games aren't as impactful as they used to be, he wasn't talking about reception, he was talking about the return on investment that investors want to see before putting up lots of money to make big games. New IP's are risky. SP games are risky if they're new, but even established IP's aren't as likely to see success. MP really isn't that much better in this regard, but when a MP game hits it big, it goes really big, and the return makes up for a lot of failures. These publishers are still investor and stock holder driven. Even many games they produce don't use their own funds to produce them, but have outside investors who aren't always shareholders. After all, why spend your own money when you can spend someone else's? Anyhow, there were quite a few new IP's this gen. Not as many as the last two, but most of those new IP's weren't SP games.
I am with you on that but it seems developes want the next big thing. Instead of creating smaller but fun games.if anything F2P games have shown they don't need to be the best looking just fun to play. Even family games have been missing this gen. Luckily Nintendo tend to cover this but when the switch has been poor on new ips.
They day of Ubisoft forward? Seems awkward lol. I wonder what corporate tokenism we will see today. Which plight they will pretend to stand behind.
oh so only when their dirty laundry gets aired out that's when we see some sort of action being took....lol wow... typical
Would be kind of weird to look for predators in all places. I mean you should have a certain level of trust to your collegues. It seems that most people feard coming forward and with the way they are handling it now people are starting to come forward, so, see the positive in this not the negative.
There's hundreds of these cases and tons of people knew. HR knew. Nobody who could do anything about it did anything about it.
You cant take action until you know the laundry is dirty.
Good the company is garbage!
Ubisoft is definitely on the decline, they refuse to bring back some of their best franchises, Rayman, Splinter Cell, Prince of Persia, smh.
Hm. This may just be confirmation that Ubisoft's swirl design is indeed a toilet bowl.
Must be something big if the rats are fleeing
