Ubisoft cloud streaming might not be far off, according to the CEO of Massive Entertainment. In a Q&A with Official PlayStation Magazine (H/T WCCFTech), Massive CEO David Polfeldt remarked that Ubisoft is “well positioned with the IP portfolio” for shifting towards cloud streaming. This suggests we could see Ubisoft’s popular games series, including Assassin’s Creed, Far Cry, and The Division, playable on mobile devices via cloud streaming in the next decade. As consoles move towards cloud streaming, with Xbox’s next generation cloud-based console reportedly in the works, it makes sense that major publishers would be planning for a cloud streaming future.

But at this stage Ubisoft is not commenting "on rumours or … [Read more...] about The Division studio Massive is reportedly working on a battle royale title

Now reports are cropping up that Massive Entertainment - the Ubisoft-owned studio behind The Division - may be working on one of their own. Check out the biggest upcoming PC games. The rumour comes via Gamereactor, who cite an anonymous source in saying that Massive are doing the battle royale dance. They say Ubisoft commissioned the studio to look into the game type back in January, and Massive reported back that “they could cook up something fun in a pretty short amount of time,” especially building off of what they have with The Division. It’s not clear whether that means a new mode for the Tom Clancy shooter, or an entirely new game. It’s not the first time we’d heard about the game type in connection with The Division. The Survival DLC which … [Read more...] about Division developers Massive are reportedly working on a battle royale
