Ubisoft promises increased focus on open-world gaming

Yves Guillemot has said that his company must increase its open-world gaming output as it looks to capitalise on the upcoming arrival of the next-generation.

"We have put to the market nine open-world games over the last seven years, including two in 2013,” the CEO told investors, as reported by Joystiq.

Through those years, we have developed technologies, we have grown the experience of our teams, we have put in place pre-sized processes to ensure efficient collaboration between multiple studios working simultaneously on the same massive maps. This gives us a unique opportunity in the industry to bring open-world on a regular basis."

The publisher currently has two open-world projects in developments – Watch Dogs and Assassin’s Creed 4. Guillemot added that the pair both sit amongst the top five pre-ordered next-gen titles.
