Watch_Dogs Developed for Next Generation Consoles First

Posted on February 26, 2013 AT 05:55am

Ubisoft is prioritizing development of the PC and next generation versions of Watch_Dogs ahead of the current generation, according to CEO Yves Guillemot.

Guillemot revealed during an interview with Inside Gamer that the company has been working on next generation console titles for the last “two or three years.”

“Previously, we developed first games on the Xbox 360 and which were then translated into the PS3. It took a lot of time and money to make that port. Now we develop from the PC and which versions are translated into a console like the PlayStation 4,” he said. In regards to Watch_Dogs he added, “At the moment our team is working hard to release the next generation consoles and the PC. Then other teams see how they can bring to the current generation of consoles. Maybe we at E3 two different versions can show.”

Watch_Dogs has been confirmed as a launch title for the PlayStation 4.
