Ubisoft are working on a new open-world game and they want to hear player thoughts on what they liked and disliked in the open-world design of their previous games.

Ubisoft have been heavily criticized for their copy-paste open-world design for years but it looks like the publisher want to change their approach and start creating more unique experiences after the Ghost Recon: Breakpoint backlash.

According to earlier reports, Ubisoft re-organised their editorial teams in an effort to differentiate their future games and judging by the latest survey Ubisoft have been sending out to Uplay users, it seems they are looking for feedback on the best and the worst aspects of their open-world design.

In the email , Ubisoft state that they are working on a new open-world game and need players' input. "We would like to know more about your experiences with open-world games," it's written in the email. "Your thoughts and opinions are important to us and will help us make better games."

The survey includes questions about mazes, puzzles, character backstory and favourite open-world games. Additionally, Ubisoft specifically asks what things players liked and disliked most.

Sadly, there is nothing in the survey that would suggest what this new game is but we assume Ubisoft are simply trying to collect some additional data from players so they can tweak games they are working on right now.

Ubisoft currently have several games in the works including Assassin's Creed: Valhalla, Watch Dogs Legion, Gods and Monsters and Rainbow Six Quarantine. Another title that Ubisoft are working on is Far Cry 6, and we should hear more about it on the upcoming Ubisoft Forward.
