Cross-Play Is On Its Way, Likely For Rainbow Six Siege And For Honor

Ubisoft fans rejoice because cross-play is seemingly on the horizon for some of the company’s biggest and best PvP games.

As confirmed by Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot, crossplay is definitely being worked on at the moment, meaning it’s hopefully coming sooner rather than later.

During a recent investor call, Guillemot announced [via]: “Our goal is to put crossplay on all the PvP games we have, over time. That’s well on the way.”

Unfortunately for us, Guillemot didn’t offer up anything more on the matter, so we don’t actually know which games Ubisoft is hoping to get cross-play live on first.

However, taking a look through Ubisoft’s back-catalogue of PvP games, it’s looking like a safe bet that Rainbow Six Siege and For Honor are going to be amongst the first.

Although lots of people embrace the way that cross-play can unite players regardless of their chosen platform, others criticise the idea as it can unbalance a game.

It’s widely accepted that players who choose to game with a keyboard and mouse have more control than those who choose to play the same game on a console controller. This can mean that PC gamers could have the edge in a lot of multiplayer titles, unless developers can put in a fix to help with balance.

In other Ubisoft news, it’s been announced via The Hollywood Reporter that a Far Cry television series is in the works, as well as a series based on Watch Dogs.

In an interview with Ubisoft Film & Television managing director Helene Juguet, a “cybermystery series aimed at tweens” has been confirmed for Watch Dogs. It’s expected to therefore be a lot more teen-friendly for the younger audiences.

Juguet also announced that Ubisoft Film and Television has partnered with Netflix’s Castlevania producer Adi Shankar for a new series based on Far Cry Blood Dragon, the DLC for FC 3.

Reportedly entitled Captain Laserhawk: A Blood Dragon Vibe, the show will also be aimed at young-adults, and will form a multiverse with other Ubisoft IPs.
