Ubisoft is gearing up for cross-platform play

French publishing giant Ubisoft is aiming to bring cross-platform functionality to all of its player-vs-player (PVP) games.

During the company’s Q2 earnings call, CEO and co-founder Yves Guillemot (pictured) claimed: “Our goal is to put cross-play on all the PvP games that we have at this time.”

However, he did not indicate when cross-platform play will be implemented.

Ubisoft’s current PVP games consist of For Honor, Ghost Recon Breakpoint - which has failed to meet the company’s expectations, however, it has laid out plans to fix the military shooter.

Further titles include The Division 2 and Rainbow Six Siege - for which the firm is currently suing hackers of the game.

“MAUs for Rainbow Six Siege reached a record high during the quarter and its PRI continued to increase. This game is making its mark in a highly competitive environment, particularly in the esports arena,” said Guillemot in the earnings call.

Due to both of its 2019 shooters - The Division 2 and Ghost Recon: Breakpoint - underperforming, Ubisoft has cut its 2019/20 fiscal financial forecast by 33 per cent.

On top of this, the company has pushed back three games - Watch Dogs Legion, Rainbow Six: Quarantine and its new IP Gods and Monsters - to the 2020/21 fiscal year. All three games were announced at E3 2019.
