The future is cross-play, and Ubisoft wants every multiplayer game it makes to have it. During an investor call, the publisher said cross-play is something it wants for any game it releases that offers PvP.
Speaking on the company’s quarterly earnings call (from Gamesindustry.biz), CEO Yves Guillemot answered a question on Ubisoft’s general perspective toward cross-play, and gave a very positive response. “Our goal is to put cross-play on all the PvP games we have, over time,” Guillemot said. “That’s well on the way.”
So far, Brawlhalla and Just Dance are the only games that offer cross-play in Ubisoft’s stable, but it’s easy to see the feature being integrated into a few of the publisher’s other games. The likes of Rainbow Six Siege, For Honor, and Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 are no-brainers, bringing the respective communities closer together. Guillemot using the term “well on the way” certainly suggests it’s already in the pipeline for a game or two, and the aforementioned would be towards the top of the list if we had to make a prediction.
