The head of Ubisoft, Yves Guillot, during a report to investors, said that future generations of Microsoft and Sony consoles will be able to launch almost all old games. And this, in turn, will only help the growth of the gaming industry with the release of the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5.
– On these consoles it will be possible to launch almost the entire catalog of games from previous generations. It will be something new in the industry, it will help old games continue to be big consoles in the market in the coming years. This will really help grow the market significantly.
The new Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 consoles will hit the market closer to the end of 2020. So far, official prices have not been announced. There are timid hopes that the new generation will not overtake the old, and Sony and Microsoft will not focus on revenue from the sale of hardware, but on the development of the ecosystem around them.
