CEO Yves Guillemot Believes Next Gen is the Last Gen for Game Consoles
Ubisoft co-founder and CEO Yves Guillemot believes game consoles have one more generation left before being replaced completely by the ability to stream games on low end hardware and smartphones.
“I think we will see another generation, but there is a good chance that step-by-step we will see less and less hardware,” Guillemot said. “With time, I think streaming will become more accessible to many players and make it not necessary to have big hardware at home.
“There will be one more console generation and then after that, we will be streaming, all of us.”
Nvidia is experimenting with different technologies that allow a person to play high-end games on basic laptops turning them into a high-performance gaming rig. While Valve, recently expanded its Link service to include the ability to stream games to a smartphone.

Guillemot told Variety in a recent interview that he believes that the ability to stream AAA games to more screens was one of the biggest innovations coming in the game industry.
“It is going to help the AAA game industry grow much faster,” he said. “We have to work on the accessibility of those games, to make sure they can be played on any device, but the fact that we will be able to stream those games on mobile phones and television screens without a console is going to change a lot of the industry.”
“There are quite a few people that are working on streaming, like Nvidia,” Guillemot said. “So, we think it’s a trend and that it will continue to evolve. Eventually, the technology will improve dramatically, which will allow us to have a very smooth experience in the big cities of the world.”
