Assassin’s Creed Odyssey developer Ubisoft has revealed its next-gen wishlist.
The PS5 and Xbox Scarlett release dates remain a mystery, but that hasn’t stopped various studios from revealing what they want from the next wave of consoles.
Some developers have called for more power to create better visuals, as well improved physics for blockbuster game releases.
But Assassin’s Creed Odyssey narrative director Melissa MacCoubrey wants something completely different from the new PlayStation and Xbox.
Speaking exclusively to the Express, MacCoubrey said that the ability to quickly release new updates would be a welcome addition.
Asked what she wants from the new generation, MacCoubrey replied: “The ability to iterate more quickly on published works would be nice – in terms of updating graphics and submitting updates.”
WWE 2K19 executive producer Mark Little also had a surprise request for Sony and Microsoft regarding the next-gen.
Little said that he wants the PS5 and Xbox Scarlett to launch with better media.
“Literally, having blu-rays as our media is challenging, because the advent of 4K gaming means everything is getting better and bigger and bigger, and we try to add more content every year,” he said.
“One of the challenges we have every year is how do we try to fit everything on to a blu-ray, and then how do you load it fast enough, because you’re literally talking 50GBs of data.
“It seems like a funny problem to have, but it is one of those challenges we face, and we talk to the hardware guys about it and they’re like, ‘yeah, that’s hard’.”
Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is out now on PS4, Xbox One and PC.
The latest entry in the long-running series features new role-playing elements, as well as player choice.
Ubisoft celebrated the release of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey in a bizarre way, offering free Spartan-inspired haircuts in the build up to launch.
