Ubisoft are one of the biggest publishers out there. Their games sell millions and they are pretty much only surpassed by EA and Activision in size and even that is debatable. It is probably not unfair to say their sales percentages are probably, at least, a hinting comparison of the wider market. That’s why these stats… Read more »

One of the most substantial announcements at E3 this year was that Microsoft are making games backwards compatible on Xbox One. Very soon we will be able to whip out old 360 games we own and get them going on the new generation hardware (assuming the game is on a pre-approved list). Ubisoft CEO Yves… Read more »

From Brandon Gerson Of Nerdy Show, for Bleeding Cool, Ubisoft brings the warfare of yore like you’ve never seen it before. Become a samurai, viking, or knight and hack and slash your way through history. The game was revealed at Ubisoft’s E3 conference and offers massive scale medieval combat that defies historical context in favor of… Read more »
By Phil Harris Ubisoft’s events kicked off with South Park: The Fractured But Whole bringing Trey Parker and Matt Stone onto stage to speak to host Aisha Tyler, spending time making jokes about getting into your, “But Whole”, during the new game and complaining about the microphones. Indeed you wonder why anyone lets them on… Read more »
South Park: The Stick of Truth was a monster hit last year, but the production was marred by intense problems. Matt Stone and Trey Parker worked incredibly hard on the game and it took a lot out of them. That’s why I’m shocked that we are getting another from Ubisoft, Obsidian and the South Park… Read more »
Aisha Tyler has more less slayed E3 since she has taken over Ubisoft’s press conference a few years ago. She’s brings a real star power to proceedings and it’s clear she genuinely cares about video games. She’s an excellent spokesperson. Ubisoft have now confirmed that she will be returning as host of this year’s E3… Read more »
Ubisoft are one of the companies who we can rely on for a press conference the day before E3. EA, Microsoft and Sony are the other certs for the day, meaning that a lot of the biggest news comes out of E3 the day before the show actually even happens. Ubisoft are now set once… Read more »
It seems that the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 are really at the end of their life cycle. Up until last year, games were still launching on both new and old gen platforms, but that has definitely slowed down now. A major player has bowed out of the generation completely too. During an investor’s call… Read more »

Ubisoft are one of the best AAA studios bringing ‘indie-like’ games to the market. Last years Child of Light was a prime example and these smaller projects really add diversity and quality to the studio’s portfolio. In that vain, Ubisoft have announced Grow Home, a game where you play as botanically interested droid, BUD as… Read more »

Cap Blackard writes, The Kinect is a powerful tool, and no one knows how to wield it better than Ubisoft. In Shape Up actual fitness routines are transformed into sweat-inducing video game experiences that are both fun games and serious calorie burners. After filming this video we felt the burn!
By Phil Harris Nestled amongst the three console press conferences, Ubisoft and EA, take a chance to show their wares and its always worth picking out some of the highlights from E3. Every year EA Sports wheels out the latest version of all their franchises with enough hyperbole to fill twelve baskets. I’m a fan… Read more »

Its first volume, Desmond, will be created by Eric Corbeyan and Djillali Difali, and published this November in France, Belgium, Holland,… Read more »
I’m particularly interested Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate for one reason (well, besides quite liking Assassin’s Creed): It’s taking place in my backyard. Seeing how Ubisoft translate the city I live in into digital form is going to be fascinating to explore. It seems, they really are making it a beautiful recreation too. You can see that… Read more »
This week we got our first look at how Michael Fassbender will appear in the Assassin’s Creed movie. One of the cool things, I think, is that the movie isn’t a retelling of any of the old titles, but instead is a totally new narrative, that exists in the same universe as the games. On… Read more »
