In recent weeks, rumours have been flying around Ubisoft about the development of Immortals Fenyx Rising 2.
In December 2020, Immortals Fenyx Rising, Ubisoft’s highly successful action-adventure video game, hit the shelves and attracted a good number of players. This has left many wondering whether the French company will give the okay for a second instalment. We now know that the production studio has been working on an unannounced production since April 2021… will it be a sequel?
Andrée-Anne Boisvert has updated her LinkedIn profile to share her current work status. There are no clues in the publication, but the networks have recalled a report from Tom Henderson, who has been very active in Ubisoft news these weeks, in which he talked about the possible announcement of Immortals Fenyx Rising 2. Of course, the French company has yet to comment.
In the same publication, the journalist also hinted at developing a new 2.5D Prince of Persia, inspired by Moon Studios’ acclaimed Ori series.
Henderson also recently detailed a multiplayer shooter with Hyper Scape elements.
Boisvert is a veteran of Ubisoft, having spent nearly a decade working on significant developments for the French company, including Ubisoft Quebec games Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, Assassin’s Creed Syndicate and Rabbids Invasion.
Going back to Immortals Fenyx Rising, Ubisoft said in 2021 that turning the video game into a franchise is up to the players, making it clear that they are not short of ideas. “When we finished it, we had the opportunity to say, ‘okay, what would you do next if you had to start a game now?’ Explore more Greek mythology, or do something completely different, something more light and stylized, and so on.”
Although the second part of Immortals Fenyx Rising is still in the future, given the success of the first part, it would indeed not be surprising if development is already well underway.
