Playstation 3, Xbox 360 Won’t Get New Assassin’s Creed Games
Ubisoft has announced on Tuesday that it will stop releasing several games for the Xbox 360 and the Playstation 3. Some of these games are the Assassin’s Creed games, Rainbow Six, The Division and another unannounced franchise.
According to CNET, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot said on Tuesday, “On Just Dance, we will continue to bring old-gen console versions.” He added, “But on the other products like Assassin’s Creed, Rainbow Six, The Division, and the unannounced franchise, we will not have old-gen versions.”
The market for Playstation 4 and Xbox One is quite prominent these days, and as it continues to grow, Ubisoft has plans to keep major games exclusive to both consoles. This will somehow make players upgrade their consoles, which will be beneficial for the companies.
Ubisoft’s unannounced game is set to launch before April 2016, while Assassin’s Creed Syndicate and Rainbow Six: Siege will be in the market at the end of the current year. Gamers can expect The Division to release early next year. There will be more games that will be having their PC versions as well.
Amidst confirmation of Ubisoft leaving the PS3 and Xbox 360 for some of its franchises, Assassin’s Creed Syndicate has released its trailer, dipping into the characters, setting and combat.
Assassin’s Creed Unity was released last year for the PC, PS4 and Xbox One while Assassin Creed Rogue was released for the Xbox 360 and PS3.
The recent fiscal year ending March 31 showed 52% of all sales coming from Xbox One and PS4 compared to 15% in the previous year. The company must be focusing on these two platforms to generate more sales.
