Two significant upcoming games from Ubisoft (which had been promising that they would be there if there were an E3 and then announced that they wouldn’t…) could be delayed…
Someone leaked Assassin’s Creed: Mirage before others, and the same person has spoken out again, so it’s worth considering what he’s talking about. He said that the next installment of the Assassin’s Creed franchise and Orlando are “likely delayed.” Also, he mentioned that Assassin’s Creed: Mirage is still running on the engine the franchise has long used (Anvil), namely, the 2019 version. He added that Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora uses the Snowdrop engine, while Orlando was the internal codename for The Crew Motorfest.
With Assassin’s Creed: Mirage due in the second quarter of next spring (2024), Avatar would be the main Ubisoft game this year. According to the leaker, we will hear about these three games at Ubisoft Forward. The French publisher will show all three, as there will be one instead of an E3 presence. Before that, the same person claimed pre-orders for Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora would start soon, and the game will be playable exclusively in first person.
As for the new Assassin’s Creed, we don’t know yet if it will be released in 2024 and not this year, as we previously reported rumors that suggested a 2023 launch. Until the French publisher spills the beans on what the situation is, we can only speculate. The same idea can be applied to the Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time remake, the Splinter Cell reboot, or even Beyond Good & Evil 2, not to mention Skull & Bones…
The state of Ubisoft from the outside looking in seems decidedly chaotic. Even if these rumors are not based on factual information, the continued delays of the Prince of Persia project alone make us look askance at the publisher.
