Ubisoft has Assassin's Creed, Splinter Cell, and three more unannounced games in the works.

All five projects are currently in development at Ubisoft Toronto, studio boss Jade Raymond says.

Ubisoft Toronto currently has five unannounced projects in development, studio boss Jade Raymond said this weekend at SXSW.

"There are definitely a lot of plates spinning," Raymond said, as reported by The Star. "None of them have been announced."

That's not a lot to go on, but Raymond also said two of these projects are co-developments with other Ubisoft studios, which tallies with what Raymond said last year.

At the time, Raymond confirmed that one of Ubisoft Toronto's collaborative projects is a new entry in the Assassin's Creed series, while the other is for one of Ubisoft's "biggest" franchises. This project remains a mystery, but it's possible that Ubisoft Toronto is working on the all-but-confirmed Far Cry 4.

In addition to the two collaborative titles, Raymond said last year that two additional projects are new IP, while the fifth is related to the Splinter Cell franchise.

She also said that Ubisoft Toronto had completed work on the multiplayer component for the long-dormant Rainbow Six: Patriots.

Ubisoft Toronto's Current Development Pipeline:

  • New Assassin's Creed
  • Two new IP
  • New Splinter Cell game
  • Mystery game based on one of Ubisoft's "biggest" franchises

Also during her talk at SXSW this weekend, Raymond said she hopes to expand Ubisoft's library to include games built specifically for smartphones and tablets.

"A good game on those devices is different from a good game on consoles, so I definitely believe they deserve their own franchises," Raymond said. She went on to say that games with a strong "social" component will become more prominent in the future.

Ubisoft Toronto's most recent title was last summer's Splinter Cell: Blacklist.

I wonder if the two new IP are the IPs that Patrice Desilets's THQ Montreal team was working on before they were absorbed into Ubisoft and Patrice left. That team was working on two games before THQ died. That mystery game has got to be either Prince of Persia or Rainbow Six.

Not a surprise .They've already owned the best spot on the last conference.

 "Mystery game based on one of Ubisoft's "biggest" franchises". Probably another Prince of Persia or Rainbow Six .

Jade Raymond? You mean that girl that worked on AC1(my favorite AC game)? COUNT ME IN!!!!

AC IV might have been a great game but it was NOTHING like an AC game,it was more of a Far Cry 3 sequel disguised as AC and I honestly doubt that "mystery project" is Far Cry 4 as various reports have suggest that Ubisoft Shanghai are working on Far Cry 4..and while I may be wrong I'm keeping my fingers crossed that its a next-gen Prince Of Persia game,the franchise is one of Ubisoft's golden achievements( leaving aside the travesty that was Forgotten Sands).

It earned them a HUGE amount of fame and respect from gamers especially in the PS2/Xbox days...It made them who they are and put them on their glory throne and AC expanded upon that(though shamelessly milked) in the last gen...

I'm glad there will be a new Splinter Cell, because apparently the last one didn't sell very well.

Same with Rayman, I hope they make another too, even if Origins and Legends sold below expectations.

Another Assassin's Creed. Hopefully this one will be good. Seemed like the series lost its touch after brotherhood. I personally liked AC4, but the story was a little on the weak side. They should have involved the ancient alien civilization a little more.

Mystery game can't be anything other than FC4 or PoP. But hopefully it will be PoP

Hopefully it is a new Rainbow Six after a very very very very very very very very very very very very long hiatus. It's been far too damn long Ubisoft, get on it.

It's interesting to see how many of Ubisoft's franchises are being displaced from Montreal to Toronto. A few years back its exactly what I predicted. Once the subsidies dries up one place they move to another. Not satisfied of having more than a billion in revenues they want the public money on top of that.

If there's anyone with illusions about a free market were the bad seed is weeded out by competition, its time to dispel it. These guys are on public welfare, always asking to be helped by the state, living out on public money for a great part. They're living on charity and enjoying that.

I sure hope next Splinter Cell is better than the pile o' crap that was Blacklist. Visually it was great but the story was lame, cheapened Fisher & his team plus he didn't have the usual mature, authoritative voice. Bring back Ironside!

I hope it's a Prince of Persia game, it's been too long now.

I love Assassin's Creed, but ACIV was just so much content. I'm a little AC'ed out at the moment.

I literally just high-fived my controller - come on more Assassin's Creed!!!  :-D

Hmmm, Beyond Good & Evil was definitely not one of the biggest franchises for Ubisoft.  Chessmaster?  Somehow I doubt it.  IL-Sturmovik?  Possible with the Rift coming along to make it awesome but I bet they'll wait for the tech to be "proven" first.  Myst?  Nah, there's nothing left to do there.  Rayman?  Maybe.


I would have to bet Far Cry, though, just like Eddie.  Let's hope they give it a not stupid story this time.

@daikkenaurora12  Was she really the creative director of assassins creed? Looks like she spends more time in front of a mirror than in front of a computer.

@gplayer5  Agreed... I liked AC4 as well- but it didn't feel like an Assassins Creed game, it felt like a pirate game.  It feels like they are losing the plot line a bit and need a REAL writer to come in and set everything in order.  I hope AC5 is much more an AC game.

@ank000  Hopefully maybe an open world PoP or something, the last two weren;t that great.

@hellomello223  It means a totally new game. Like Division and Watch Dogs, except there's 2 new ones now that we have yet to see

@ECH71  Aw man, I  am liking blacklist a lot! Very fun. It's the first splinter cell I've played though. Can you recommend me other good splinter cell games?  Blacklist reminds me of ALPHA PROTOCOL which was an aweeeeesome game.  I love it.

@g1rldraco7

I vote Rainbow Six, games I had a lot of fun with. Been even longer than Prince of Persia.

@Sevenizz  Jade Reymond is executive producer on Watch Dogs and she's very invested in it. It's Watch Dogs 2 mark my words.

@pip3dream @ECH71  Chaos Theory was probably the best Splinter Cell game although plays alot different then Blacklist.

@bouff Yearly installments? I know it hasn't happened yet, but given Assassin's Creed it's a definite possibility.
