Ubisoft Will Announce A New AAA Game At E3 2018
What are you hoping to see?
Ubisoft will announce another new AAA game soon. The Assassin's Creed publisher announced today that it will have three AAA games coming in the current fiscal year (which ends on March 31, 2019) including The Crew 2 and The Division 2, as well as an unannounced game.
Ubisoft said it expects the games to combine to sell 19 million units, which compares to to its previous forecast of 23 million unit sales across four AAA games. One of those games, Skull & Bones, has been delayed to the next fiscal year, which explains the downturn in sales projections.
Ubisoft provided no further details on what the "unannounced franchise" is, including whether or not it is a completely brand-new IP or a sequel in an established franchise.
If it is a sequel, there are plenty of possibilities, but one seems more likely than the rest: Splinter Cell. Ubisoft has been teasing a new Splinter Cell for a while now, most recently by adding Sam Fisher to Ghost Recon: Wildlands.
During an earnings call, Ubisoft CFO Alain Martinez said Ubisoft will announce the new game at E3 2018. Ubisoft's E3 2018 briefing is slated for the afternoon of Monday, June 11. What are you hoping that the unannounced franchise is? Let us know in the comments below!
