PC Gamers are still wary about Ubisoft. After years of iffy PC ports, as well as extremely restrictive DRM, it is understandable why players are a bit skeptical. Sadly Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag producer, Sylvain Trottier, has shot the company in the foot a tad.
Speaking to Edge, but reported by Videogamer, Trottier stated:
“It’s always a question of compromise about the effect, how it looks, and the performance it takes from the system. On PC, usually you don’t really care about the performance, because the idea is that if it’s not [running] fast enough, you buy a bigger GPU. Once you get on console, you can’t have this approach.”
This follows reports that Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag is running rather poorly on even high-end systems. Can this comment be used to suggest that Ubisoft does not care for optimizing games for PC, or that some of them don’t even understand how PC gamers operate? Sure, but that doesn’t mean that is how it really is. Either way, it is a rather poorly constructed comment that hits a nerve with a sensitive part of the gaming community.
What do you think? Can Ubisoft make it up to PC gamers they have snubbed in the past? Let us know in the comments.
