Ubisoft Has Two Unannounced AAA Games Coming Next Fiscal Year

Two games are "from our biggest franchises."

12 Comments

Ubisoft delayed three of its upcoming games, pushing them into the fiscal year 2020-2021. That window is getting increasingly chock full of Ubisoft games, though, as they will share the space with two more unannounced games from the company's biggest franchises.

In an investor call, the company announced that two AAA games "from our biggest franchises" are also set for the fiscal period between April 2020 and March 31, 2021. Those two will join Watch Dogs Legion, Gods and Monsters, and Rainbow Six Quarantine, which were given new release windows in the same time frame. And that's on top of Roller Champions, which was already slated for then.

Ubisoft declined to comment on which franchises these unannounced games belong to, but the mention of the company's franchises may offer a clue. One is likely the next Assassin's Creed, which hasn't had a new entry since 2018's Assassin's Creed Odyssey. The next game is rumored to take place in the Viking age.

Assassin's Creed has recently undergone a transformation into a live game, with loads of post-launch DLC and a regular stream of new events and challenges in Odyssey. One of Ubisoft's reasons for delaying the trio of games was that its live games are coming too close together and are not well-differentiated from each other.

Are they actually new games? Or just more Ubisoft games?

They just delayed all their games and you expect us to believe 2 unannounced games are coming out next year?

Yeah right.

Well, if the next AC game doesn't come out for another year, maybe I'll have finally finished Odyssey by the time it launches.

That game is large.

@olddadgamer: I blacked out, and when I came to I'd bought the Odyssey season pass. Now there's even MORE content in that game!

@mogan: Dude....no. Save yourself!

I let my kid buy the season pass, but that's only cuz a) he paid for it and b) this'll mean he'll leave me alone about getting new games for a very, very long time.

But you, dude, are an adult! SAVE YOURSELF!

@mogan: It took me around 120 hours to complete everything substantial (say, all achievements from base game and DLC content)... Let's just say I now no longer thirst for anything Assassin related for more than a year lol

"not well-differentiated from each other." That could be because you put the same mechanics into every game. Try to stop doing that...
