Ubisoft Teases Unannounced AAA Game, Coming Early Next Year
Assassin's Creed publisher will announce the game this fall.
As part of Ubisoft's latest earnings report today, the Assassin's Creed publisher teased an unannounced AAA game. Although Ubisoft is not yet sharing specifics about the game, the publisher says the title will be released sometime in the company's current fiscal year. That means it'll be out before April 2016.
This game will be announced sometime this fall, not at E3 next month, a Ubisoft representative told GameSpot.
During an earnings call this afternoon, an analyst asked Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot if the game would be a sequel to an existing franchise or a new IP. The executive said he "can't comment at the moment on that."
Guillemot also confirmed that this new game--whatever it turns out to be--will not be released for last-generation consoles.
If it's a sequel, one possibility is Watch Dogs 2, as Ubisoft has spoken openly before about returning to the franchise. On top of that, the unannounced game was just recently spotted on an employee's resume.
