Bisoft is replacing a central editorial team that orders all of its products, following the partial sale of two Tom Clancy games in which CEO Yves Guillemot blamed the lack of division on the minds of consumers.
Video Games Chronicle reports that Ubisoft's chief creative officer Serge Hascoet will still be managing Ubisoft's planning team, but that he will be given more subordinates and will be given more autonomy, so that he can lead a broader view rather than directing individual projects.
This change aims to provide individual components for Ubisoft, from Honor in Assassin & # 39; s Creed, a separate identity. An anonymous source told VGC that the previous formation meant that the taste and ideas of one or two key people in the editorial team made it to Ubisoft's games, causing many of them to feel the same way.
Ubisoft's focus on open world environments in its AAA offerings and, more recently, live service games with longer lifetimes, contributes to this blur.
In a statement to the VGC, Ubisoft confirmed that it "strengthens our editorial team to be faster and better aligned with our development teams around the world." Asked for comment, a Ubisoft spokesperson referred to the same statement.
Ghost Recon Breakpoint arrived with a turd in October, for inspection and sales. In an interview with investors earlier that month, Guillemot said Discount was "severely deprived of a large portion of the public" and "not of sufficient partition, which prevented the game's outstanding qualities."
At the same conference, investors were told that Watch Dogs: Celebration delayed after its first release date of March 2020. It and two other games, Separation of Clouds Rainbow
"Although each of these games already has a strong identity and great potential, we want our teams to have more time to develop to ensure their best skills are utilized to provide the right players," Guillemot said in a statement at the time. He also added that the company needs to leave more time between launching its live service games so as not to impress the interests of others and audiences.
