Ubisoft Says We Can Expect 4 AAA Titles During the Year

During the fiscal year earnings conference call Ubisoft has mentioned The Division 2 sales, thoughts on cloud gaming and promised strong growth through four new titles.

One of the four new titles has been confirmed to be Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint, with an October 4 release date. The announcement for Ghost Recon Breakpoint has been met with mixed reactions. Gamers are either unhappy or unsure how to feel about things like always online DRM, the lack of AI teammates, the implementation of a social hub in-game. There’s still a lot of time left before the release, we will see how it plays out.

The rest of the games have been announced for Q4 of the fiscal year, which means we can expect them in early 2020. Among the three still unannounced games, it is very likely that Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell is one of them.

Ubisoft CEO, Yves Guillemot, previously said we will see something and that certain people have that IP on their mind. Besides that, Julian Gerighty, the creative director for Ubisoft made a tweet saying that he is working on the new Splinter Cell. This was quickly shut down by Ubisoft PR, but Gerighty later tweeted that he might be in trouble over the original tweet, so hopes are high for a new Splinter Cell game.

The final two games have been rumored to be Watch Dogs 3 and a new Assassin’s Creed. Based on the added alternate ending for Watch Dogs 2, leaks, and less than subtle hints from Ubisoft, a new Watch Dogs is very likely and it is probably going to be set in London.

There were some leaks, later proven fake, about the new Assassin’s Creed being all about Vikings, but it is still hard to say one way or another whether a new Assassin’s Creed game is the fourth still unannounced game.
