Ubisoft Has Six Xbox One Games Scheduled for Console’s First Year


Within the first 12 months of the Xbox One’s launch later this year, Ubisoft is planning to flood the next-gen market with at least six games for the fancy (and rather boxy) new Microsoft gaming console, because no new console launch is complete without strong support from Ubisoft. They’re always good for at least half a dozen games.

Like the PlayStation 4, the Xbox One era will begin this holiday season with the releases of Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag and Watch Dogs. As you can see pictured up top, Watch Dogs protagonist Aiden Pearce managed to hack into a Major Nelson text conversation confirming the game’s appearance on Xbox One.

The next-gen lineup, which Ubisoft will be unveiling in greater detail at E3, will include new entries in existing franchises, completely original IPs and smaller digital download titles.

“The next generation of consoles will reinvigorate our industry and make it possible for us to deliver incredible new entertainment to gamers,” said Yves Guillemot, co-founder and chief executive officer, Ubisoft. “Our teams are using the innovations in connectivity, immersion and social gaming included in Xbox One to create original and memorable next-gen gaming experiences.”
