This past E3, Ubisoft dropped some bomb shells on us. From giving us a cross continent open world racer in "The Crew" to simply stealing the show with the reveal of their third-person shooter MMO "The Division," Ubisoft often flys under the radar while stealing the show with massive titles.
If there was a disappointment from these two reveals, it was the lack of platforms they were announced for. Although both titles being announced for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One (with The Crew coming to PC) gives incentive to go "next gen," many players would still be alienated from the lack of current generation support.
Perhaps more upsetting was the lack of a PC version of "The Division." So upsetting, in fact, that the news actually inspired a fan driven on-line petition to build support for a PC port, as it's a title best suited for the PC platform.
Well, I have good news today for anyone looking for non-"PSOne" versions of these titles (or bad, depending on how you look at game development); 'The Division' and 'The Crew' will be getting both PC and current generation ports.
This information comes from the source that broke news on 'The Crew' weeks before the actual reveal. Although this information still needs to be classified as rumor, the sources track record is solid.
Still though, none of this information has been officially confirmed by Ubisoft as of yet, so please take everything with a grain of salt. In the mean time, let me know how you feel about both 'The Crew' and 'The Division' possibly getting both current generation and PC ports.
One would argue that developing for current generation hardware will inhibit the scale and scope of these two massive open world titles, so it should be interesting to see how Ubisoft handles the port given truth to this information. Also, as I did try getting clarification, when asked "WiiU?" I was told "I'm not sure, but I seriously doubt it."
