In a recent earning’s call, Ubisoft’s CEO Yves Guillemot revealed that Ubisoft is interested in bringing cross-play in all of its multiplayer titles going forward.
Guillemot’s latest comments came after he was asked about Ubisoft’s perspective towards cross-play. He replied, “Our goal is to put cross-play on all the PvP games we have, over time. That’s well on the way.”
As of now, Brawlhalla and Just Dance are the only titles that come with cross-play feature. However, as cross-play is set to become popular going forward, multiplayer titles such as Rainbow Six Siege, For Honor, and Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 will certainly be on top of Ubisoft’s priority list to bring cross-play. Given Guillemot has said that cross-play is on the way, it isn’t farfetched to think that some of the most popular titles will get the feature in the coming years.
Ubisoft’s interest in bringing the technology isn’t particularly surprising. Although majority of the studios over the years refused to bring the feature to gamers, more studios are offering the service to their customers. For instance, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare launched with the feature after a successful beta period. As a result, we might be getting cross-play from Ubisoft in a timely manner.
