Ubisoft Predicts Big Things From The Next-Gen Consoles
Things could really pick up in the next generation, if Ubisoft's predictions come true.
The publisher revealed their plans for E3 and as part of that announcement, CEO Yves Guillemot stated his high expectations for the future. In fact, he believes that it will be a "pivotal moment for the video game industry," and next-gen hardware sales could really surge.
Based on past market trends and their own internal estimations, Ubisoft believes that within two years, the next-gen console user base could be double that of the current generation (in the same amount of time). The publisher wants to capitalize on this by utilizing "cross-studio collaboration." We have no idea how many units the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One will sell, but it seems possible that both could sell relatively well in the first couple of years. Well, provided Microsoft somehow picks up the pieces of their unveiling event last week. They need to fix things first.
We'd also need to see a serious uptick in Wii U sales, wouldn't we?
