CEO of Ubisoft Yves Guillemot was in a recent interview with CVG where they discussed the fate of the video game industry. It is getting harder for companies to keep consumers interested, because so much has already happened, but its not over yet.
Guillemot still has high hopes for video games, because they are becoming easier to make and publish. Check out the CEO’s statement below.
“I still think it is not the last generation, because the manufacturers want a way to control their platform and the machine is the best way to have a specific access to that. What I’m happy with is, because we’ve been waiting for a long time, if we really come with high quality games then the public will come very quickly to buy them. So we will see a big increase in the market increase in the market.”
“I think that the cloud is going to change a few things. Now with cloud and the increase of bandwidth we should have the possibility to increase the quality of games a lot over the next few years. But I think five years is the right timing for it. If we can take advantage of the quality those machines bring, and if we can spend money, then I think we can make the business grow very fast.”
