During Ubisoft’s financial conference call for the first quarter of the fiscal year 2016-2017, CEO Yves Guillemot talked about the company’s stance on the upcoming Nintendo NX, also mentioning potential casual appeal.

“On the NX, what we have seen is really great, so we think having a new machine coming is going to help the industry to continue to grow and to take lots more casual players back in the industry.”

Guillemot also mentioned that Ubisoft is “Really Excited” ¬†about the Xbox One S, as it’s going to continue to boost the market, enabling the industry to provide better graphics and Ubisoft to grant better immersion for gamers.

Considering the contents of the answer, it’s very likely that Guillemot actually meant Project Scorpio, since the Xbox One S does not improve graphics besides the addition of HDR.
