Ubisoft chief Yves Guillemot believes cloud streaming will be as transformative to gaming in the coming years as Netflix was to TV.
Speaking with the Financial Times, Guillemot looked back on Netflix’s initial foray into streaming and noted the market’s early scepticism. “Their shares fell a lot and they were widely criticised,” he recalled. “Today, we see what they have become.”
Guillemot said he believes the same will eventually ring true for video game streaming as well, but admitted it will likely take some time. “But when it takes off, it will happen very quickly,” he said.
