Ubisoft hints at backwards compatibility for some titles

It looks like Ubisoft is starting to think about backwards compatibility for some of its back catalog. They’ve already got the Rainbow Six: Vegas games coming alongside the release of Rainbow Six: Siege in December, so it was likely only a matter of time.

They haven’t announced anything yet, but they’re starting to gauge interest. On Ubisoft’s official Facebook page for its Mexican branch, the company posted an informal poll asking which titles people would like to see brought forward for play on Xbox One, accompanied by the image above.

As one would expect with an informal poll, the responses are all over the map. In addition to calls for an Assassin’s Creed “Ezio Auditore Collection” there were a surprising amount of people demanding that current-gen games be rebuilt for the Xbox 360, which isn’t terribly likely. Regardless, the concept is clearly on Ubisoft’s map, and they seem to be more reticent than other companies to go the remake route. Compared to other companies like Square Enix and Capcom, who seem to be dealing in remakes as often as new games lately, Ubisoft hasn’t announced any that I can think of.

With as many franchises as Ubisoft has – Assassin’s Creed, Splinter Cell, Far Cry, Prince of Persia, etc. –  their back catalog is ripe for the picking. What Ubisoft game would you like to see made backwards compatible for Xbox One?
