Yves Guillemot, the CEO and co-founder of Ubisoft, has reiterated that it will be difficult to support current generation technology once the next Xbox and PlayStation 4 have found their footing. Guillemot says that once you push the next generation towards its limits, the more you will have difficulty in adapting to the older generation consoles. Guillemot also says he isn’t entirely satisfied with current Wii U sales and says that they’re monitoring the situation closely.
You will then continue to feed two generations of consoles at the same time with the same games?
“We won’t be able to do it on the long term. More you push the next generation towards its limits, the more you will have difficulty in adapting to the “old gen”. So we are going, little by little, to migrate to the new generation of consoles. I think that by 2015 we will have completed this transition.”
To rephrase: you have nothing to say about the current sales of the Wii U?
“We can not say we’re satisfied with the sales of the Wii U. They were good in the United States in November / December, but did not go well in January 2013. We’re waiting to see the evolution of things, we look at this closely.”
