Watch Dogs developed for next-gen consoles first

'Then Ubisoft will see how it can bring the game to PS3 and Xbox 360'

Ubisoft appears to be prioritising development of the PC and next-gen versions of Watch Dogs, which is due for release later this year.


According to a Google translation of an interview the publisher's CEO gave to Dutch site Inside Gamer, Ubisoft has been working on next-gen console titles for "two or three years".

Yves Guillemot said: "Previously, we developed first games on the Xbox 360 and which were then translated into the PS3. It took a lot of time and money to make that port. Now we develop from the PC and which versions are translated into a console like the PlayStation 4."

He added of PS4 launch title Watch Dogs: "At the moment our team is working hard to release the next generation consoles and the PC. Then other teams see how they can bring to the current generation of consoles. Maybe we at E3 two different versions can show."

Guillemot also said Ubisoft is working on unannounced Vita games. "We are still a number of Vita games busy. I can not announce anything, but it's coming. The Vita is not dead for us."
