No that's not what he's implying.
And you know
You can read anything into anything if you try hard enough.
Sure... And Ubisoft marketing can do a lot of CYA through implicit statement, and has in the past...
Yes, you are being paranoid jumping to that conclusion just from that...
I have made no conclusion to 'jump to
', only considered a possibility
in the context of some of Ubisoft's GR:FS PC related activity, and statements -- I'm only paranoid if I'm wrong, and that's still TBD...
FS simply cant be a "Dedicated product" (the key point of what he said) because there will be console versions of it - so GR:O is separate and "dedicated to PC" in that respect (the Wii-u is a separate "unique" version build)
Sure it can, but Theo explicitly refers to ports, and GRAW by way of example was not a port but a dedicated engine and even developer for the same IP, though content was
ported and he may also have been referring to that.
The pharase that caught my eye though was "...rather than just ported multiplatform content.
" which is language that sounds like it's right out of an Ubisoft focus group meeting about GR IP, suggests exclusivity, and the possible
implication (...'rather than just ported multiplatform content'...)
that the path to the PC via ports, even where it's just content, may now be regarded as less viable then more focused and conspicously lucertative dedicated product; ala GR:O...
Soon enough we'll know for a fact, but in the mean time, GR:FS PC isn't exactly getting much in the way of an open treatment, other then an explicit no comment policy...
