Ubisoft cutting down on FPS games

Posted on March 17, 2008 by (@NE_Brian) in News, Wii


Are hardcore FPS titles going out of style? According to Ubisoft, yes. Phil Therien of Ubisoft made a comment that first-person shooting games do not provide enough revenue to warrant the development process of these games. Moreover, Therien noted that the market is “too narrow” to continue to develop as many FPS titles as the company has done in the past. Arguably, this is due to the overwhelming success of casual games. Will more companies follow in the steps of Ubisoft?
