“A lot more multiplayer” to feature in Far Cry 4

Far Cry 4 will be much more multiplayer-heavy than its predecessor, according to Ubisoft boss Yves Guillemot.

The CEO of the mammoth French publisher confirmed the news in today’s company financial call. Gamespot reports Guillemot said:

“We are working on launching games that will be played for a longer time. This will allow us to do more DLC [and] item-based sales in those games.”

Following yesterday’s earnings report – which showed record growth in digital sales, now accounting for nigh on 20% of Ubisoft‘s total sales – this is perhaps unsurprising. CFO Alain Martinez concurred with this push towards digital content:

“We are moving to make games that are extended over longer periods, so in those games, we not only want to sell more [units], but we want to sell more items, more content.”

Are you happy for games to have a pre-planned focus on multiplayer DLC, if it means you have a longer lasting experience? Let us know in the comments below.
