In the last few days, we have had several rumors and ‘leaks’ talking about everything Ubisoft has been saying about new generation consoles, especially on the theme of backwards compatibility. It seems that many people assumed that the French studio confirmed the capabilities of both new generation consoles … When in fact it was not quite what happened.
It's a lie! Ubisoft has not confirmed the backward compatibility of PS5
So, as I mentioned above, there have been many headlines stating that Ubisoft has even confirmed that new generation consoles like the PS5 would be able to support games from previous generations, such as the PS1, PS2 and PS3 games. However, this is not quite true!
- Nintendo is not in the least concerned about the PS5 and the new Xbox!
Guillemot of Ubisoft said that the new consoles will support the games of the current generation, which will give a new life to the old hardware. In other words, the studio's CEO never spoke about the support of games from platforms older than the PS4 or Xbox One. Now read:
“What will be new in the industry is the fact that the new consoles are able to run the entire console game catalog from the past. Something that will be a first for the market. ”
Yes, it is true that these lines can be understood as Retro-Compatibility for everyone. But … It is very likely that the mention is the consoles launched immediately before the PS5 and Xbox Series X, not least because there are several versions of PS4 and Xbox One.
In short, no … Ubisoft has not confirmed anything! And there it is, even if that is what the CEO meant, it would be readily contradicted. The best thing is to wait for the PS5 reveal event that shouldn't be long. (If CoronaVirus allows …)
