Ubisoft Dropping PS3 and 360 in 2015

Assassins Creed Rogue

It looks like the PS3 and Xbox 360’s days are numbered at Ubisoft.

Speaking with Game Informer, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot revealed that they will probably stop releasing games for the last-gen systems in 2015. He says they’re sticking with the PS3 and 360 this year with games like Assassin’s Creed Rogue because they’re still in demand, but thanks to the rapid sales of the PS4 and Xbox One, all of their studios will make the switch next year. Other publishers have made similar plans, so gamers everywhere will need to upgrade their hardware soon if they haven’t already.

As for the Wii U, Guillemot has confirmed that both of this year’s new Assassin’s Creed games will not be coming to the Nintendo console. He says that the previous games didn’t sell well enough on the system, but unlike some other publishers, they’re not going to abandon it. Ubisoft plans to release more party-style games like Just Dance 2015 on the Wii U, because Guillemot says that those kind of game’s are most popular on the console. He also says that the Wii U version of Watch Dogs is still on the way, despite rumours of its cancellation.
