*rolls eyes*

This marketing speak is running thin. Cloud or no, that game world isn't going to look any different than what we can already do. You're just increasing data usage, IMHO.

***make bigger and more complex game worlds than ever before, that can be updated in real time and be populated by a giant number of players, creating new social experiences.***

Pipe dreams on creativity that won't go anywhere we haven't seen because we all know how many of those social experiences will involve phallic or patented creations that will lead straight to limiting creativity to prevent it. Let alone most creations will just be things Ubisoft will sell you and not what you create with them. And we already have games that allow hundreds of people in worlds where they can build and create within limited capacities. It's standard in most 3D survival games now.

Yup I mean you can make a game today and expand the game world through a patch, update, expansion etc. You didn't need the cloud for that and haven't for the last 30 years

Palitera858d ago

Ubisoft is a few years late to the future that never came.

John_McClane858d ago

I would have to agree with your assessment.

«Power of the Cloud» marketing fluff is back, huh?

I'm afraid of this, though - «The game is always running and it’s always possible to update pieces of that game». Judging by Ubisoft quality standarts, when you visit "updated area", all you'll see is «Loading new terrain, 0kb / 5gb». And it also might lead to some areas being marked as "currently in development" on release. Don't see any positive things from this tech yet. You already have MMOs and updates-on-the-fly and that didn't cause any increase in quality or broke any new grounds.

Ah s**t here we go again Ubisoft worst pocket milkers in the game.

Nft = fail
Milking Tom Clancy = fail
Sequel after sequel = fail.

Let's see this bomb spectacularly

I wish Ubisoft would just return to making (SP) games instead of jumping on every new bandwagon (MT’s, GAAS, cloud, NFTs, etc etc)

Imagine growing up where your dream is to create fantastic new games for a new generation, you get hired by a big organisation like Ubisoft, and then the suits in charge decide that instead of having you create those great games, they’re far more interested in how many MT’s they can make you shove into whatever you’re making, and now they want to force you to work on cloud-based stuff, which means you’ll have to make creative concessions in terms of ambition, most users won’t be able to enjoy your creation in a flawless fluid manner (stuttering, pop-in, lag, etc), and instead of you creating your world once, as great as possible, instead it is destined to be altered and changed by whichever new developer they hire for that job right after you …

Or you could just get a decent PC, then you own the actual hardware.

Ubisoft Not Worried About GTA 6: Other Games Out During GTA's Past Releases Do Really Well

Ubisoft's Yves Guillemot isn't worried about about GTA 6 and states that from their experience, games available during a GTA launch do well.

Hofstaderman10h ago(Edited 10h ago)

Brave words.... GTA V has done well since 2013 to date. 11 years, Yves.

RiseNShine9h ago

Old man, now that it's even trendy, it's time to step down, Ubisoft is looking worse than ever.

You've not had to worry about a GTA game being released for over a decade bro. There are games bigger than what Ubi shites out that avoid releasing around the time of GTA, that's how massive GTA is.

Demetrius2h ago(Edited 2h ago)

I if I were other devs I wouldn't worry neither, especially since down the line rockstar will abandon offline support and fully focus on online only bs. Hopefully Gta 6 is made with plenty of depth and not just gorgeous graphics, come on rockstar come back and show how open world games should be.

Interesting. Then where the fk are the new moster hunter games , physically in north America. Hell I'd even import but the 2nd game is a digital code. What's up capcom?

VersusDMC3h ago

Obviously they don't mean 100% of their games are going to be physical.

And considering 90% of their sales were digital last year you're lucky they are still releasing physical at all.


Cacabunga3h ago

I will support them going forward! No physical no buy

CobraKai2h ago

They got my continued support for sure

QuantumMechanic11h ago(Edited 11h ago)

Great news! I'd also like to see their PS VR2 experiences released on physical media.
