Watch Dogs: Legion, Rainbow Six Quarantine, and Gods & Monsters will be on PS5

Ubisoft has announced that all of its games next year will be cross-gen, as the company reorganises in the wake of Breakpoint’s failure.

One of the many questions yet to be answered about the next generation of consoles is how they’re going to handle games that have only just come out in the current gen.

Previously, those games would be remastered or released simultaneously on all formats, but the recently increased focus on backwards compatibility has led some to wonder whether things will be different this time.

But it seems not, at least for Ubisoft. Not only will Watch Dogs Legion, Rainbow Six Quarantine, and Gods & Monsters be cross-gen but so too will two currently unannounced games next year.

That means it’s very likely that one or more will be launch titles for the PlayStation 5 and Microsoft’s next gen console.

Whether other publishers will follow suit is unknown though, with the biggest question mark hanging over Sony titles – since games such as The Last Of Us Part 2 and Ghost Of Tsushima will be out just months before the PlayStation 5 launch.

That means it’s very likely that one or more will be launch titles for the PlayStation 5 and Microsoft’s next gen console.

Especially as Ubisoft has already said that it plans to bring Rainbow Six Siege to PlayStation 5 and Project Scarlett.

The news was revealed as part of Ubisoft’s recent financial results, where they admitted that sales of The Division 2 have been disappointing and that Ghost Recon Breakpoint has fared even worse.

Speaking on podcast Splitscreen, Kotaku journalist Jason Schreier claimed that these failures have led to Ubisoft ‘changing their mentality big time’ and that developers are now being told to pitch ideas with the emphasis on them having a unique aspect or selling point – something their last few games have lacked.

How long that attitude lasts, and what new games it might result in, we’ll have to wait and see but the immediate result has been that all next year’s games have been delayed in order to add extra polish.
