Ubisoft Developing Ten Project Natal Titles
Ubisoft must like what they see out of the two upcoming motion controller devices for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
During the companys investor call this morning, CEO Yves Guillemot was asked about its upcoming game development on both Microsofts Project Natal and Sonys Motion Wand. He says they have several titles planned for both.
"We have around ten games that will come out for Natal during the first six months of its release," said Guillemot. "And we expect four to five games for Sonys new motion controller.
"Thats the picture at the moment. It can change in the next twelve months," he added.
Guillemot was then asked how many of these titles will be based off new or existing gaming franchises, such as Prince of Persia. He clarified by saying he was speaking about upcoming casual games, and not titles that will have added motion functionality.
"I didnt count the games that are supporting the new functions that those accessories will bring, he said. "I was more speaking about casual games that we are doing on those two machines. We can consider on those games 70 percent new properties."
Microsoft has yet to reveal Project Natals official release date, but many company executives have pointed to a fall 2010 release window. Sonys has scheduled the release of its motion controller this coming spring.
