Ubisoft's support for PS3 and Xbox 360 to taper off after 2015

Strong last-gen sales helping to keep Ubisoft's interest

Yves Guillemot, CEO of Ubisoft has spoken about when they plan to scale down their support for the PS3 and Xbox 360.

This year they have continued to fully support the last-gen consoles with Watch Dogs, Far Cry 4, the upcoming last-gen only Assassin's Creed: Rogue and even an Xbox 360 version of Ivory Tower's next-gen racing MMO The Crew.

However Guillemot does see a point where it will unfeasible to continue to support the older consoles and that looks like the end of next year. Ubisoft's support for PS3 and Xbox 360 to taper off after 2015

He stated, “What we see is that this year is still fine for the PS3 and 360, but next year because they are selling very quickly, we’ll move to the new hardware. After 2015, it will be hard for us to create games for those systems.”
