It is possible that this tease is referencing Child of Light, the all-new game from Ubisoft creative director Patrick Plourde set to be discussed at GDC Europe in the days before Gamescom.

Gamescom takes place August 21-25 in Cologne, Germany. In addition to the all-new game, Ubisoft's lineup for the show includes Watch Dogs, Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, Rayman Legends, and Splinter Cell: Blacklist.

Ubisoft is not the only major publisher making announcements for Gamescom. Blizzard Entertainment will make a "special announcement" during the show, while 2K Games plans to show off all-new XCOM content at the event.
