Aside from its casual Just Dance rhythm series, no future Ubisoft games will be released for the PS3 and Xbox 360.

At an earnings call with investors yesterday, publisher Ubisoft announced that it was dropping support for "last-gen" consoles - the Xbox 360 and PS3. With the exception of casual dancing simulator Just Dance, no future Ubisoft titles will appear on the dated platforms.

It explained that it wanted to shift its focus to the "current generation" of consoles, namely, the PS4, Xbox One, and PC, although it did not specifically mention the Wii U, leaving its fate up-in-the-air. Ubisoft previously stated that Watch_Dogs would be the last mature game for Wii U, but did confirm that just like the Xbox 360 and PS3, Nintendo's console would still get future iterations of Just Dance.

Last year Ubisoft released two completely separate Assassin's Creed games: Rogue for PS3 and Xbox 360, plus Unity for PS4, Xbox One and PC. This year, it looks like it's just Syndicate, for the PS4, Xbox One and PC.

Far Cry 4, also released last year, was Ubisoft's last full cross-platform release, coming out on PC, PS4, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PS4.
