During a statement from Ubisoft's Consumer and Marketing Director, Sandrine Caloiaro said: "PC gamers are important to Ubisoft, and we're committed to better understanding and addressing their needs and to continually improving our relationship with them. By joining the OGA, we're able to glean gamer insights from their research, learn from best practices in our industry, and contribute to the group's upcoming initiatives".

DSO Gaming asked Ubisoft if it would be interested in doing more tech interviews for its games, to which Ubisoft said: "We'll be doing fewer and more selective interviews this year". And of course they are, especially surrounding games like The Division due out in early 2016, they don't want to be prodded on questions about the PC version of the game.
