Ubisoft Explains Why Far Cry 4 Is Not A PS4/Xbox One Exclusive
It was a tough decision.
Unlike Assassin’s Creed Unity, Far Cry 4 will be hitting across two generations of consoles. The game is scheduled to release on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and of course the PC later this year. Given that the new consoles have already sold above 15 million units between them, why did Ubisoft went with a multi-generation approach with Far Cry 4?
“With the great reception Far Cry 3 received, we knew right from the early stages of Far Cry 4 production that we wanted to offer it on both generations of console,” Game Director Patrik Méthé said to GamingBolt. “The truth is, even though the team is very proud of what we achieved on FC3, we also had to make tough decisions toward the end and with the opportunity to come up with an even more ambitious title with FC4, we wanted all of our fans to have the chance to embark on this new adventure, whether they own PS3, Xbox 360, PS4, Xbox One or PC.”
It will be interesting to see how Far Cry 4 will push the barriers on the old consoles as well as take advantage of the new consoles’s processing power. For more on the game check out our wiki here and stay tuned for more coverage on Far Cry 4 in the coming days.
