From a mixture of conjecture and some insight from legitimate games industry mates, I truly believe that a barebones team is handling this stuff.
R6, even with microtransactions, simply doesn’t make Ubi enough money to exist as a self-established title.
Their upkeep of the game is an attempt to emulate Steam’s early days by keeping a core set of heavily trafficed but under-monetised games in their focus until they’ve got their perpetual-revenue machine running.
Only problem is, Ubi still have a very ‘console’ mindset about everything, including thier PC footprint.
My several cents on the matter.
I’ll keep playing because I love you guys, but much more of this and all love will be lost with R6 for me.
