Ubisoft isn't afraid of mobile gaming, sees a bright future in Wii U and Oculus Rift

Ubisoft's Alain Corre

Ubisoft’s Alain Corre isn’t worried about the rise in mobile gaming. On the contrary, Corre, who heads up the company’s overseas operations, seems to welcome the uptick in iOS and Android gamers and not resignedly, either. “What we like in mobile gaming is that it’s bringing a lot of new people to games,” he told us. “Which for us is very good because it’s a teaching thing and… at one point, some of them will feel a bit limited with the scope of mobile games and they’ll want to experience something different in gaming.” Whether it’s the limitations of the casual genre or outright boredom, Corre’s confident a chunk of these new gaming converts will seek out home console or PC experiences. Something more along the lines of a Watch Dogs or Assassin’s Creed, perhaps. And with the advent of the next-gen, the timing for this gaming initiation couldn’t be better for Ubisoft.
