Ubisoft to move away from PS3 and Xbox 360 development after 2015

Ubisoft is planning to move away from PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 development after 2015, according to CEO Yves Guillemot.

Guillemot told Game Informer in a recent interview that due to how quickly next-generation hardware is selling it will be hard for Ubisoft to continue making games for last-gen platforms. “What we see is that this year is still fine for the PS3 and 360, but next year because they are selling very quickly, we’ll move to the new hardware,” he said.

“After 2015, it will be hard for us to create games for those systems,” he added.

Ubisoft currently has Assassin’s Creed: Rogue in development for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, but based on the above comments, this may be one of the final Assassin’s Creed titles that owners of those platforms get.

Sony recently announced at Gamescom that the PlayStation 4 has now passed the 10 million units sold mark.
