Ubisoft wants to improve its relationship with PC gamers

Stephanie Perotti, director of Uplay, has stated that Ubisoft wants to improve its relationship with PC gamers.

Ubisoft has been working to attempt to balance its love between both console gamers and PC gamers.

EA Games president, Frank Gibeau, said at the time that "the days of licensed-based, 75-rated games copies are dead like the dinosaur."
