Ubisoft reveals that its delayed games will be cross gen and release on PS5 and Project Scarlett

In a turn that should not surprise many, Ubisoft has declared in its recent earnings briefing that all of the games they delayed earlier last week--Watch Dogs: Legion, Gods & Monsters, Rainbow Six Quarantine, and two additional unrevealed games--will all be launching on not only the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, but also their next-gen successors. We know for certain that both Xbox and PlayStation's upcoming hardware will release around the Holiday 2020 season, meaning there might be some dramatic delays for games like Watch Dogs: Legion, originally slated for a March 6, 2020 release, which may have been pushed back upwards of nine months, if Ubisoft plans to release both versions of the game at the same time.

Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillmot is confident in the processing power of the Xbox Project Scarlett and "PlayStation 5", claiming that, "The five titles, yes, they will be on this generation and the next generation, and they will take full advantage of all the new features that are coming with the machines, which are actually going to be extremely interesting for players. You will be able to download new content a lot faster, players will experience better framerates, there are lots of very good elements that will come with these new machines".

Nah, if the PS5 is backwards compatible, they lose sales. This way, they can charge people more for the PS5 release at launch with the mentality of 'well it's only X more and I may as well if I'm getting this fancy new console'.

nope, if ps5/x2 are both back compatible this will even spare Ubisoft some money to port them to nextgen console, now all they required to do is release a enhance graphic patch to improve said games on newer HW, and the profit should stay same.

Wow! So Ubisoft actually believes Sony's FUD that the PS5 will launch in time for the 2020 holidays? They now have a lot riding on that.

So, following the trend on releases available on both PS3 and PS4, will they charge 20-50% more on the current gen versions just because?

Persona 5, trails of cold steel, et cetera

No, there's no extra effort. It's just because they can milk some extra, as you proved.
