Ubisoft Shakeup to Improve Gaming Experience

A statement on VGC from Ubisoft announces a shakeup to the company's editorial team to create more varied gameplay experiences. They tie this back to last year's news that the publisher/developer was delaying three games to rethink their approach after disappointment in the response to Ghost Recon Breakpoint and The Division 2. VGC says: "It’s believed that by spreading editorial’s responsibilities across a group of leaders, the team can help bring a more distinct identity to their respective games. VGC was also told that simply expanding the group’s resources and giving it some presence outside of Paris could have just as much of a positive impact." They offer this quote from an anonymous source: "In the previous system that editorial had, there were often the ideas of just one or two people getting put into every game. That’s why you tended to see such similarity, because it’s the same taste and opinion being replicated." Here's the short statement on the topic from Ubisoft:
“We are reinforcing our editorial team to be more agile and better accompany our development teams around the world as they create the best gaming experiences for players.”

I used to enjoy the Far Cry series, but then I played Sniper Elite 3 and 4, plus Metal Gear Solid V which showed me enemy AI that was way more evolved than what you would find in Far Cry. Once you put in enough hours in an Ubisoft game you can anticipate just about every enemy AI move at which point the game replay ability tanks.

Ubisoft's enemies seem notoriously brain dead to me like the Serious Sam, Duke Nukem and old school Doom style, with the only surprises coming from clever hiding/ambush set ups and "I don't believe that many just spawned and keep spawning" type scenarios.

I won't be buying any more Ubisoft games until I see they have put some resources into enemy AI that is better than old school first era FPS mobs.
