With the announcement of Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed Syndicate a few years way back, we also got news that the AAA developer was dropping development for games on the previous platforms. So the question is, isn’t it time to let the past gen go?
This means from now on they were focusing their efforts solely on the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. There has been some outcry from this announcement, but why? Let’s take a look at why it’s time to say goodbye to the past generation of consoles.
If, for example, you want to play Der Eisendrache and find the Void Bow Skull locations, or where the Dragons are, the old consoles will be no good.
Let’s get to the most obvious case for this argument: graphics. We all know that as long as a developer is making sure a game runs well on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, it simply will not look as good as it possibly can.
