Why is Ubisoft Cutting Resources?

Ubsioft is doing this to give their team a chance to give a better experience to players who are currently playing their newer released games. If you look closely, you'll see that these are all games on the PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360, a generation of console's we've long since passed.

So, if you're a fan of any newer games you'll likely not have to worry until 10-years time when Assassin's Creed Valhalla is outdated.
