Ubisoft Scaling Back on AAA Games

During its post-earnings conference call, Ubisoft reveals changes to its future development strategy. VGC has details on how this will rely less on AAA games and will place a greater emphasis on high-end free-to-play games:
“In line with the evolution of our high-quality line-up that is increasingly diverse, we are moving on from our prior comment regarding releasing 3-4 premium AAAs per year,” said Ubisoft’s chief financial officer Frederick Duguet.

“It is indeed no longer a proper indication of our value creation dynamics. For example, our expectation for Just Dance and Riders Republic are consistent with some of the industry’s AAA performers.

“Additionally, we are building high-end free-to-play games to be trending towards AAA ambitions over the long-term,” he added.

Maybe because the AAA games Ubisoft puts out are all the same thing over and over?
This feels so true. I can't get more than a couple of hours into an Ubisoft game without getting completely bored. Mind you I'm basing some of my experience on their free weekend trials, etc. I did buy games like the Division. It's such a beautiful game that's inviting enough and I wanted to like, but never launched again after a few hours.
