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.
