Some of Ubisoft’s games are being delayed and while they are still coming out for the current generation of consoles, it has been confirmed that delayed games, such as Watch Dogs Legion will also be released on the Xbox Scarlett and PS5.
CEO of Ubisoft Yves Guillemot confirmed that games like Watch Dogs Legion, Rainbow Six Quarantine, and Gods & Monsters will be cross-generation and will take advantage of the performance that the PS5 and Xbox Scarlett has to offer. Here is what he had to say regarding the matter:
The five titles will be on this generation and next generation of consoles, and they will take full advantage of all the new features that are coming with the machines. Which are actually going to be extremely interesting for players, as you’ll be able to download new content a lot faster.
There is not much that we know about these upcoming new consoles but we can be sure that they will offer reduced loading times, better FPS and higher resolutions. These upcoming consoles will be able to deliver 8K 120 FPS and it will be up to the developer to decide whether to go with a higher resolution or frame rate.
Guillemot seemed confident that these upcoming games will take advantage of the hardware upgrades that the next generation of consoles has to offer. Here is what he had to say regarding the matter:
Players will experience better framerate, so there are lots of very good elements that will come with those new machines.
One of the major selling points of Watch Dogs Legion is that the player can pick any character. Any character that you see or encounter in the game can be recruited and you can play as that character. The downside is that if a character dies then he or she will remain dead. There is no respawn mechanic in the game.
The developers have already talked about the potential replayability of the game but that is something that we will learn more about when the game comes out.
