Yves Guillemot explains that new engine introduced with last year's title will be refined for future installments

Unity troubles will benefit the next Assassin’s Creed

Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot has said that the pains experienced in building a new game engine for last year’s Assassin’s Creed: Unity will benefit this year’s instalment.

“Each time there’s a new transition of consoles, we try to create engines that take full advantage of the capacity of those consoles,” the executive told investors, as reported by Kotaku. “In the case of Unity, we had to redo 100 per cent of the engine.

“When you do that, it’s painful for all the group… and everything has to be recalibrated. With this game, a few things were not perfect when the game was launched. But the engine has been created, and it’s going to help the brands to shine in the future.”
