Thanks to technology and the way games are headed, it is common to see more developers start creating open-world games on a more regular basis. Titles such as Grand Theft Auto 5, Assassin’s Creed, and Skyrim come to mind, and it looks like Ubisoft has decided that open-world titles are indeed the way to go and have revealed their plans to start releasing more open-world type games on a regular basis. According to Ubisoft’s CEO, Yves Guillemot, he believes that open-world is the new direction in which games evolve, and that in the past seven year, Ubisoft has helped released nine such titles, two of them in 2013 alone.
Guillemot believes that the rate at which Ubisoft churns out open-world titles is an “unmatched performance”, and that the company is in a position where they are able to do this thanks to their strong collaborations with gaming studios. Ubisoft is hoping that by releasing more open-world titles, they are able to broaden the market and engage players further. Personally, open-world titles are expansive and fun, but not every game has to be that way, but what do you guys think? Are open-world titles the future of gaming?
