Posted by Andy Green
Yves Guillemot is confident it will live up to the hype
Interest in Ubisoft's upcoming multi-generational Watch_Dogs title seems to be growing by the day. The game will be released on Wii U, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PC and the yet to be launched PlayStation 4.
It turns out Ubisoft really stepped it up a notch after announcing the game at last year's E3, sending a large amount of resources to the development team in Montreal to ensure they had everything they needed to create the game being promised.
In a recent interview with MCV, Ubisoft President Yves Guillemot said he was confident the developers would make the game a success with the additional resources.
E3 was a great revelation for Watch Dogs. It gave us a chance to increase the whole project, giving the studio the chance to have bigger teams to help them achieve this goal they have. You always have great ideas, but you need enough people to bring it to life.
After E3, we really made sure they had all the teams they needed and all the capacity they wanted to fulfill their dream. It’s an open world, that is well-adapted to what people want to play today. So there’s good potential for success.
Guillemot also said in the interview that his company is still committed to bringing games to Wii U, though he is concerned about sales.
We think Wii U is a great machine. But it just has to sell more.
Recently Guillemot said he is confident the Wii U would begin to gain momentum once more games are released.
