Ubisoft to develop games for iPhone
Ubisoft, the publisher of game series such as Rainbow Six, Splinter Cell, Ghost Recon, and Prince of Persia, is reportedly very interested in developing games for the iPhone and iPod Touch. Pauline Jacquey, Executive Producer of Ubisoft's "Games for Everyone" recently said,
"At the minute, we’re only showing DS and Wii games, but we'll be working on all other platforms. We'll be making games not only on PC, PS3 and 360, but on iPhone and iPod touch as well."
Hopefully, the iPhone will start with "Games for Everyone" and then extend to deeper, more immersive games such as the aforementioned Rainbow Six or Prince of Persia series. Because currently the "Games for Everyone" lineup is well, uhm, how would you say it, lacks pizzazz?
Ubisoft may be waiting to see how well EA and Sega develop real games for the iPhone and what kind of market there will be for iPhone gaming before jumping in. But no worries Ubisoft, as we stated on TiPb many times before, we love iPhone gaming. And none of us ever want to go back to that mobile version junk.
