Ubisoft Wants To Pursue Initiatives Similar To Child Of Light
Ubisoft has some seriously huge IPs in their stable.
But that doesn't mean they intend to ignore the smaller, more unique titles. For instance, they're quite pleased with the critically acclaimed Child of Light, and they'd like to produce similar gems in the future.
During a new CVG interview, Ubisoft Montreal Creative vice-president Lionel Raynaud said they were very pleased with the game in question:
"We are super happy with Child of Light. The team did a good job and the game had a great reception. We were proud to deliver something new and unique—a lot of people were surprised that Montreal was delivering this kind of game."
Raynaud added that the developers learned a lot about role-playing systems during the creation of Child of Light, and the people involved want to work together again. Unfortunately, creative director Patrick Plourde has left to work on a new project, but that doesn't mean the future isn't bright. Added Raynaud:
"So yes, we will encourage other initiatives like Child of Light and there's a chance that we will have many more games like that in the future. I already have many different projects that are in the pitch stage."
Child of Light is a beautiful accomplishment and well worth your time, if you haven't tried it already. And we'd love a sequel!
