Ubisoft Massive’s Star Wars games can be cross-gen

Recent reports claim this Ubisoft Star Wars game is some distance away from the release, but new job opportunities released by Massive Entertainment suggest the developer is looking at a launch across generations. A quick look at Massive’s career section reveals that it seeks to fill several roles for its Star Wars project, and at least one of them specifically mentions the PS4 and Xbox One.

The Ubisoft Star Wars project is not expected to be launched until 2025

According to well-known insider Tom Henderson, Ubisoft has “many” games under development and is planning a “massive” showcase to reveal some of them. Unfortunately, Star Wars is not one of them, because it’s unlikely to see the light of day before 2025. In light of this, a cross-gen release is curious, especially since it does not appear that Massive is reusing an old job description. . The role in question is the role of senior sound designer specifically for the Star Wars project. Candidates are expected to have an understanding of “PS4, Xbox One and PC audio functionality, capabilities and limitations.”

This, of course, does not confirm or deny a cross-gene release, but it is nonetheless remarkable. As for the project itself, not much is known about it, but according to the aforementioned ad, Ubisoft wants to “do justice to a game and a story that brings both new and lifelong fans on an immersive and unique journey that will stay with them for years to come. . “

Meaning: Hopefully, Ubisoft’s Star Wars is not cross-cutting

Zarmena writes … I understand the attraction of cross-generational releases given the ongoing shortage and installation base of last generation vs. current generation consoles, but a game that is reportedly years away from release on a PS4 does not sound like a good idea. Time and time again, developers have acknowledged the pressure of having to release ambitious, demanding games on outdated platforms along with new hardware, but publishers continue to prefer releases across generations for financial reasons. Here, we hope that Ubisoft does not force development across generations here.
