If they're losin' money, they're doing it wrong.

I mean, hell, don't they hire specialists for this kind of crap? Cut off some salaries, reuse engines, give smaller budgets- it's not THAT hard.

Then again, with such a big company as Ubisoft, I can see why they wouldn't do it- among other things.

what? you want them to reuse engines and have smaller budgets for games?

So then you can bash Ubisoft for reusing engines and not putting more money into their games?

Neckbear2984d ago (Edited 2984d ago )

Actually, I don't mind reused engines for smaller projects, since I believe that artstyle always overcomes technical limitations. (See: Wind Waker, it still looks better than most of the games out there.)

If they gave smaller games a try (Not talking about downloadable games, but games with smaller budget) most of the problems over high-cost development would be forgotten, and they wouldn't bleed money horribly.

Just saying, though.
