Ubisoft Promises to Improve PC Games
Filed under: UBISOFT

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?

I am still haunted by their crappy PC ports like Rainbow 6 Vegas 1 & 2, Hawx, Ghost Recon FS, AC3....

I'm tired of empty promises of publishers pretending to give a shit about PCs. FUCK Y'ALL!

Exec 1 "Our company is becoming synonymous with shit ported console games for the PC."
Exec 2 "That's serious. We better do something!"
Exec 1 "Already handled. I put out a press release saying we won't be such massive douchebags anymore."
Exec 2 "Crisis resolved! Now back to snorting coke off of interns."
if you have to put out a press release that says you're going to stop a policy of dumping crap products on the market, your good will is called into question

I will believe this 'promise' when it comes true.
  barasawa: Agreed. Ubi has been pretty PC abusive for years now.

really ?

is that why the upcoming PC ports will be made by a subsidiary of Ubisoft and not the main devs....because the main devs will be too busy making the console games ?

excuse me while i put on a hazmat suit to protect me from your fucking bullshit.

Wait a minute here. You said Ubisoft right? Correct me if I'm wrong but isn't this the same Ubisoft that accused us PC gamers of pirating the majority of our games just a year or so back?

If Destiny was on PC:

I'd buy it.
I'd try it.
I'd tell it to toss off and then go to bed with me gently.
