Here’s an interesting one: Ubisoft has revealed that there are three unannounced games in its production pipeline currently, on top of the recently-revealed Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Breakpoint. This news stems from an earnings presentation from the French company that has found its way online.
In the presentation, which you can view at this link if you so desire, Ubisoft’s final slide promises that it has “3 unannounced titles” coming to market in “fiscal Q4.” If Ubisoft’s understanding of a financial year works the same as ours, this suggests that we’ll see this trio of games released by April 2020.
The presentation doesn’t make it clear what these games will be, but there is a slide that describes Ubisoft’s intention to “enter into new gaming genres, segments, and business models” while also creating “new IPs and new experiences.” The company also plans to “drive audience and engagement through bigger games and post-launch content” as well as planning to “bring [its] established PC and consoles franchises to mobile and to a much wider audience.”
So, what do we think these three mysterious unannounced projects will be? Well, it sounds like some of them will be new intellectual properties, which might aim at a big crowd of people by launching on mobile devices. However, it would seem a bit weird if one or more of these games didn’t fall within Ubisoft’s established stable of franchises.
The next Assassin’s Creed game hasn’t yet been formally announced, for one thing, although the clues point towards it being a Vikings-focused adventure. The next Watch Dogs game hasn’t been revealed either, with rumors suggesting that it could have a London setting. Ubisoft also has Far Cry, Rainbow Six, and For Honor under its roof, any of which could feasibly have a sequel in the offing. And let’s not forget an oft-requested Splinter Cell sequel.
