A Ubisoft Forward could be coming soon, which could fill out the French publisher’s currently incomplete release schedule.
According to Tom Henderson, a reliable insider writing on Xfire these days, Yves Guillemot’s company has been preparing for a big show for a long time. Still, after Russia launched a war against Ukraine, their plans are not entirely set in stone. Other world events have also thrown a spanner in the works for the French publisher. Whatever the case, Henderson claims that Ubisoft has close to 20 games in the pipeline to be announced in one form or another.
Several unannounced games have also been mentioned. Ubisoft Quebec is working on a sequel to Immortals Fenyx Rising; the Montpeiller-based studio is working on a new 2.5D Prince of Persia; and Ivory Tower is making The Crew 3. One of the DLCs planned for Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla may become a standalone game (Assassin’s Creed: Rift, reportedly due out in early 2023). Assassin’s Creed: Infinity, a game using the live service model, is still in its early stages, so the Ubisoft Montreal+Quebec duo has until at least 2024, 2025, to get it ready.
Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora is already in testing for release in FY2023 (so between April this year and the end of March 2023), and two free-to-play games, The Division Heartland and XDefiant (which no longer bears Tom Clancy’s name), are also on track for release soon. It is perhaps not the case with Ghost Recon Frontline, which has had a staggeringly negative reception, to say the least (and as it is supposed to be NFT-centric, even more so; Ubisoft‘s Quartz was not very well received by the public either).
Henderson doesn’t know much about Skull & Bones, Beyond Good & Evil 2 and Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake, but that’s more than nothing. It should be pointed out here, however, that none of this is official, so it shouldn’t be 100% believed.
