Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot has said that the move from PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 to PlayStation 4 and the next-gen Xbox is happening a lot sooner than expected.

In an interview with Gama, Guillemot said that the unveil of Wii U at E3 has seen Sony and Microsoft getting ready quicker than expected.

“I think it’s sending the message that the new transition is going to happen – and we’re going to have new machines coming soon,” he said.

Ubisoft will continue to be a publisher that will be there for hardware launches like Wii U – having been a launch partner for all of the current-gen systems such as 360, PS3 and Wii – according to Gulliemot.

“We’re going to continue to take this approach,” he said. “We feel this console is coming with very innovative features that will change the video game industry and we want to be a part of that.”
