Ubisoft to stop releasing Assassin’s Creed games on last-gen after Rogue

According to Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot, the company will stop developing games for last-gen consoles (Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3) after they will release Assassin’s Creed Rogue. The reason behind this decision is that next-gen is selling very fast, and considering that only PlayStation 4 sold over 10 million units, Ubisoft seems to think that they already have a strong enough install base.

Such move is natural, and it also happened in the past with other generations like PlayStation 2 and the original Xbox.

“What we see is that this year is still fine for the PS3 and 360,” he told GameInformer. “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.”

You can expect for EA’s sports games to be release for a couple more years, but triple-A titles will be soon vanishing from those consoles.
