Ubisoft CEO, Yves Guillemot, has reassured gamers that the company has learned from the mistakes they made with Watch Dogs. No doubt if you were on image boards and internet forums then you will be aware of the visual downgrade the game received at launch, compared to the debut footage we were shown at E3. The game looked nothing like the one that was showcased at E3 2012 and Ubisoft CEO, Yves Guillemot, says this is something that will never happen again.
With E3 2015 we said, OK, let’s make sure the games are playable, that they’re running on the target machines. When we show something, we ask the team, make sure it’s playable, make sure gamers can immediately see exactly what it is. That’s what we learned from the Watch Dogs experience – if it can’t be played on the target machine, it can be a risk.”
