During Ubisoft’s financial conference call for investors and analysts, the company’s executives talked about cross-play.
The publisher recently implemented the feature on Brawlhalla, and during the Q&A session it was asked whether the feature will be implemented across its larger franchises.
Chief executive officer Yves Guillemot provided a promising answer.
“Yes, our goal is to put cross-play on all the PvP games that we have at the time, so that’s well underway.”
Chief financial officer Frederick Duguet also added that the feature has just been implemented in Brawlhalla. While the publisher believes that it will increase engagement, it’s too early to draw a conclusion.
That being said, Ubisoft is very happy with the growth of the game in the second quarter of the fiscal year.
While cross-play took a while to finally be accepted by console manufacturers, with Sony finally fully opening to the feature only recently, it appears that more and more developers and publishers are jumping on the bandwagon, which is certainly a good thing.
No further time frame was provided by Ubisoft for the implementation on its major titles, but at least now we know it’s coming.
