Ubisoft officials have confirmed that the company will be creating games for Nintendo’s next generation console, currently codenamed Revolution. UK managing director Rob Cooper has used a British press event to confirm that the company would support the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Revolution fully, according to reports from UK website Eurogamer. He specifically mentioned versions of Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter and King Kong as Xbox 360 launch titles, to appear before the end of this year – but Ubisoft has not yet confirmed specific titles for either of the other two formats. Cooper also reiterated the company’s goal to double its development capacity in time for the next generation formats. Although Cooper may not have realized it at the time, this makes Ubisoft the first Western third-party publisher to formally commit to creating Revolution titles. Even Japanese developers with close links to Nintendo have given only tacit support to the format so far, prompting some to query the current progress of the console and of Nintendo’s attitude towards third party companies. The precise nature of the Revolution hardware and its control devices is still clearly in the shadows, following Games Conference comments by Bernd Fakesch, spokesman and general manager of Nintendo of Europe: “We're all wondering what the Revolution controller will look like." The next opportunity for Nintendo to reveal more Revolution details will be at the Tokyo Game Show, where Nintendo Co. CEO Satoru Iwata is scheduled to present a keynote.
