Ubisoft: 50% of games to be 3D-enabled in two years

Ubisoft said in its fiscal year financial call last night that it reckons over half of the games line-up due out in 2012 will be 3D-enabled.

For now at least, the firm expects 15-20 percent of games that will be released next year will support the tech.

“The 3D games are going to come more and more with the TV screens that are available,” firm CEO Yves Guillemot said in the call last night.

“I think next year we should maybe see 15-20 per cent of games that will be 3D on next-generation consoles. And then the following year it will be 50 per cent.”

It comes on the back of Nintendo announcing a 3D-enabled DS SKU back in March, with more details to come at E3 in three weeks, while Sony is expected to fully implement support for the technology into PlayStation 3 by June.

Ubi also gave support to the 3D platform by implementing support into Avatar: The Game at its release last year.
