I'm sure I could ask anywhere here on this site about what they think of how Ubisoft treats PC gamers, and I doubt I'd get super happy and pleased responses. The company has vowed at Gamescom to do more for PC gamers, and they insist that PC gaming is becoming more important in their business.
“We recognize the importance and needs of PC gamers, and want to continue to improve how we create and support games for PC,” Ubisoft European head Alain Corre told MCV. “As a percentage of our business, PC grew last year, from 11 per cent in 2012/13 to 15 per cent in 2013/14, which is an indication of the progress we’re making.
“We listen to feedback from players and continue to adapt accordingly; for instance, we switched to a simple, one- time activation for our PC games – a standard practice in the industry. We’re also doing our best to bring our games to PC at the same time as the console versions. Assassin’s Creed Unity and Far Cry 4, for example, will be released simultaneously on console and PC, and this will continue to be the goal for all our major titles.
“Finally, we are committed to improving the optimisation of our games for each platform on which they’re released – including PC.”
Too little too late? Or will you as a PC gamer welcome Ubisoft back with open arms?
