To our excitement, Ubisoft has shared details on their plans for their 2020 fiscal year. Five AAA games are being released and they will support next-gen consoles.
So far, Ubisoft announced three of those five games, Watch Dogs Legion, Rainbow Six Quarantine, and Gods & Monsters. They haven’t announced the remaining two, but if we are to believe Kotaku’s Jason Schreier (and we should due to his amazing track record with leaks), those two will be new Assassin’s Creed and Far Cry entries.
All five games will be available on current-gen and next-gen consoles. Three will be released during 2020, the other two will be released by the end of March 2021. It’s safe to say that the new Assassin’s Creed and Far Cry are the ones that will launch in 2021.
Besides the exciting news, Yves Guillemot, Ubisoft CEO, talked about the recent delays and that they did fall away from the spotlight recently, but that all of that is going to change.
"We have evolved our organizational structure in recent months in order to strengthen our focus on high-potential titles, and we are very excited about the idea of releasing five new AAA games in 2020-21," Guillemot said in the report. "Although the competitive environment is looking especially tough, production of these games is progressing well and each of them comes with great features that set them apart."
Ubisoft still has a lot of success with the ongoing support of Rainbow Six Siege and Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, but after a while you really want to see something new.
Unfortunately for fans, there’s still no word on a new Splinter Cell game, but the games that are currently lined up are something worth getting excited for.
