      Ubisoft said today that it is seeking to take Windows PC gaming way more seriously, as the platform continues to make gains against rivals.

      With a notorious anti-piracy system in its past, and a habit of releasing PC versions of games after console versions, Ubisoft has faced its share of criticism from PC gamers. But the company said today it is seeking to focus more on the needs of PC gamers, through simplified DRM activation and a greater commitment to multi-platform releases.

      “We listen to feedback from players and continue to adapt accordingly,” said European boss Alain Corre in an interview with MCV. “For instance, we switched to a simple, one-time activation for our PC games; a standard practice in the industry. We’re also doing our best to bring our games to PC at the same time as the console versions.”

      Assassin’s Creed Unity and Far Cry 4 (pictured) will be released simultaneously on console and PC, on Oct. 28 and Nov. 18 respectively. Although PC versions of big Ubisoft games have been released alongside console versions in the past, they have tended to trail weeks and even months behind.

      Corre said that Windows PC gaming had increased its share of the company’s revenues, growing from 11 percent in 2013 to 15 percent this year.

      “We recognise the importance and needs of PC gamers, and want to continue to improve how we create and support games for PC,” he said. “We are committed to improving the optimisation of our games for each platform on which they’re released, including PC.”

      MCV @ GAMESCOM: Ubisoft vows to improve its PC games

      MCV @ GAMESCOM: Ubisoft vows to improve its PC games
      Assassin’s Creed publisher Ubisoft says it is making strides in its attempts to win over dissatisfied PC gamers.

      The firm has come under fire from PC fans in the past for its DRM system and for releasing PC SKUs of games long after their console counterparts.

      But European boss Alain Corre tells MCV @ Gamescom the firm is changing its ways, and that PC gaming has become a more important part of the company’s business.

      “We recognise the importance and needs of PC gamers, and want to continue to improve how we create and support games for PC,” he says.

      “As a percentage of our business, PC grew last year, from 11 per cent in 2012/13 to 15 per cent in 2013/14, which is an indication of the progress we’re making.

      “We listen to feedback from players and continue to adapt accordingly; for instance, we switched to a simple, one- time activation for our PC games – a standard practice in the industry. We’re also doing our best to bring our games to PC at the same time as the console versions. Assassin’s Creed Unity and

      Far Cry 4, for example, will be released simultaneously on console and PC, and this will continue to be the goal for all our major titles.

      “Finally, we are committed to improving the optimisation of our games for each platform on which they’re released – including PC.”

      Ubisoft has also insisted that it is trying to be more open with players, allowing them to influence development of future titles.

      D’ailleurs depuis le temps que je le dis.

      JE suis d’ailleurs en train de préparer un article qui montre comment la croissance du PC a été un facteur important de la hausse annuel du CA d’UBI depuis 3 ans…

      J’approuve 🙂 je suis peu à peu passé exclusivement sur PC et en dématerialisé (Steam et/ou UPlay). Je possédais quasi toutes les consoles old-gen mais je n’ai toujours pas franchi le pas pour les new gen … Et je ne suis pas sur de le faire avant quelques temps (à part peut être la PS4 mais bon j’attends LE jeu en exclu probablement qui me fera changer d’avis).
      Peut être qu’en effet les versions ne sont pas toujours bien optimisées. Pour l’instant je me retrouve souvent à mettre la qualité au mini (par ex sur WD et il n’y a pas tant de différence que ca) sinon ca fait carburer les ventilos hehe et je n’aime pas quand ca chauffe trop -> durée de vie du PC qui baisse.

        Oui watch dogs n’est pas un exemple d’optimisation réussie.

        D’ailleurs je crois que seul Far Cry 4 était un petit bijou en la matière.
        Par contre Black Flag, même si c’est pas trop bien optimisé, c’est très beau et fluide 🙂
