On May 12, Ubisoft announced, during a financial call with its investors, that it will no longer be developing titles for the Xbox 360 and PS3 consoles with the exception of the music/rhythm series Just Dance.
For the foreseeable future, the publisher/developer will be focusing development on the current generation of consoles and PC.
This news follows last year’s release of Assassin’s Creed:Rogue which launched exclusively for Xbox 360 and PS3, alongside Assassin’s Creed:Unity which was only available on Xbox One, PS4, and PC. The recent release of Far Cry 4 was available on PC alongside all current and previous generation platforms.
However,this year’s Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate, set in London, will only be available on PC, PS4 and Xbox One.Syndicate will mark the third main-series Assassin’s Creed title, after Black Flag and Unity, to launch on current generation platforms in the last two years. This is not even counting the downloadable spin-off series, Assassin’s Creed: Chronicles which features assassins from China, Russia, and India.
Ubisoft did not elaborate on any future development plans for Wii U during this announcement. The company previously confirmed that Watch Dogs was the last mature rated title that the studio plans to launch for Nintendo’s current platform. Just Dance support is expected to continue as usual but it is unclear if future Just Dance titles will make their way to Wii U.
