Gamescom 2012: Anno, Silent Hunter, Might & Magic To Move To Browsers
Ubisoft is shifting some much loved, classic IPs online.
Anno, Silent Hunter, and Might & Magic will soon become free to play browser-based games.
“We’re really targeting new audiences,” said Benedikt Grindel to PC Gamer. He pointed out several regions that he felt were untapped with “great potential”: South America, Brazil, and Asia.
However, don’t expect the games to be direct ports.
“There have to be some changes when we adapt games to the business model – but the browser itself is just a platform,” Benedikt explained.
Check out the game trailers, revealed at Gamescom, below.
