It appears that Ubisoft has started work on an internally-developed role-playing game; According to a LinkedIn profile of one Zhou Min, the French company is working on an “RPG title” for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 platforms. As news pieces originating from LinkedIn profiles usually go, the information stops there, however could this be the Final Fantasy that Ubisoft’s European, Middle East, and Asia/Pacific territories’ executive director Alain Corre spoke of late last year?
“People often say that Japan is packed with hardcore gamers, and it’s important to understand what it is they’re looking for,” he said in December. “Our mission is to create hit games on the same level as Final Fantasy and Dragon Quest. We’d like to see everyone in Japan root for us. Perhaps someday our efforts will result in a major hit on the level of a Dragon Quest.”
