Ubisoft Promises to do Better for PC gamers

 

Ubisoft promises to do better for PC gamers, promising will be working hard on making their games run better on a wider range of PC hardware. The PC platform has received a lot of growth in recent years, with Ubisoft reporting that PC now accounts for 15% of their total sales in 2013/14, which was only 11% in the previous year.    

  

"We recognize the importance and needs of PC gamers, and want to continue to improve how we create and support games for PC," 

"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."

 

Ubisoft Promises to do Better for PC gamers  

After the disaster that was 2014, Ubisoft says that they will be a drastically different approach to PC and will deliver games which are in a more optimised and stable state. When games like Assassin's Creed: Unity and Far Cry 4 launched they were plagued with bugs and performance issues, which resulted in months of post launch patches and a lot of dissatisfied PC gamers.   

Ubisoft now say that they have a dedicated team to deliver the PC versions of future Ubisoft titles like Assassin's Creed: Syndicate, Rainbow 6: Siege, Tom Clancey;s The Division and Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Wildlands.  

 

"We've got an internal team that's dedicated to the PC version, and one of the things that I'm happy about is that we're really taking our time with the PC version to really make it shine,"  

"We want the game to really work well on the PC on day one, which is why it's not the same launch [date] as the Xbox One and the PS4 versions. It will come a bit later in the fall, but I think it will be worth the wait."

"We're working really hard on optimizing the game, making it run smoother on a wider range of PCs,"
"We're really dedicating a team to working on this and making sure it shines."

 

Ubisoft have made similar dedications to PC gaming in the past, from which we have seen mixed results, with a removal of Ubisoft's always online DRM on one hand and sub par releases like Watch Dogs and Assassin's Creed Unity on the other. 

Assassin's Creed Syndicate will be releasing on all platforms on October 23rd 2015, so we will only know than if Ubisoft's words hold any real value.

Well at least they're publicly acknowledging the crap we all knew for months, if not years. That's a step in the right direction.Quote

What they mean to say instead of "our PC market share grew, so we must be doing well " is
" the overall PC market grew, and we would have done much better if we hadn't messed up the last few games and tried to screw our customers over again with ridiculously overpriced DLC ".
The next Assassins creed better come with free DLC or a free expansion a few months after launch or I won't even think about buying it. Unity make a bad impression on me so much so that I didn't buy it when it was reduced by 50% in the steam sale, and I have all the other Assassins creed titles.Quote
