Ubisoft: New Ghost Recon Must Be Better Than MW2
Ubisoft is expecting to have a big year but they also know that in order to emerge victorious, they must wow the crowd.
A highlight in Ubisoft's third-quarter 2009 financial update, Ubisoft says their "next big game" for 2010 is the new Ghost Recon; Ubisoft France CEO Geoffroy Sardin spoke about it during an interview with GameKult. He says the company expects the anticipated title to be a "blockbuster" but in light of recent releases, he knows it must compete on a high level. Said Sardin:
"The technological advances and competition are pushing us to do better. When you look at the excellent Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 in terms of content, multi and buzz, it needs to be level, if not much better. We therefore take the time to refine that title. But we have seen, played and it's just crazy."
Slightly broken translation there, but you get the gist. We're still not even sure what this game is called - it could be Ghost Recon: Predator - but we do know that titles like Advanced Warfighter have done very well in the past. It's odd that Sardin compares it to Modern Warfare 2, though, as Ghost Recon is always a third-person shooter. Perhaps it's more of a comparison to the military setting and an overall striving for high quality on Ubisoft's part; we just hope they'll make an official announcement some time soon. Feel free to read the rest of the interview because Sardin talks about a great many subjects within the industry.
