“We are not going to stop those properties. We are going to work on them. The teams are really looking at what we can come [up] with. I think you will really like what you see in the future. It could take some time to make sure we are really delivering what we want." - Yves Guillemot

Of course... continuing to follow Square Enix and Team ICO's route in making their games become the next DNF (pre-Gearbox). In the meantime, more Assassin's Creed and Watch_Dogs.

I really like PoP and hope they get back to it at some point. Feel like they have made some fairly dumb gameplay decisions for the last couple of iterations (primarily concerning combat). Would be nice if they could get it right!

I was really expecting a PoP running on the Ubiart engine at E3, shame.

I don't think there's a need to bet on that one.

No ****. Ubisoft is basically an Assassin's Creed factory at this point.

Same, I want PoP Warrior Within 2, the first one was the bomb.

I actually finished Warrior Within very recently. I think Sands of Time was much better :p

Of course I'm judging these games in 2013-2014 so at the time WW could have seemed like a bigger improvement. To me it seems like they made the game longer than Sands of Time by making you go through the same areas more than twice (once in the past, once in the present and then maybe a third time too)

Next up: The Two Thrones :p

What have they ever shown of the game ? A cgi trailer, that's it.

Not even gameplay. I think Michel Ancel complained to Ubisoft that nothing was done with BGAE2.

I'd rather they take their time and make quality games, or not at all. It's different to Team Ico and Duke Nukem Forever, since Ubisoft continue to make other great games. We aren't waiting for years with nothing from them.

That's bullshit. What about Rayman Origins/Legends? What about Far Cry 3, Blood Dragon and soon 4? What about Child Of Light? What about The Crew? What about The Division? What about Watch Dogs? What about South Park: The Stick of Truth?

BG&E2 has been on hold because of the 2 Rayman games and that with the PS3/360 hardware they couldn't achieve their vision apparently. :/ Active production have been confirmed in around 2012 but with a small team and it's going slowly. Micheal Ancel, the creator, definitely want the game to be made.... it was supposed to be a trilogy but it will depend on Ubisoft decisions and their priorities.

I'm wondering what Ubisolf Montpellier have been working on since Legends has gone gold.

And apparently, they showed new concept art just 2 months ago. Did not know that. Nice!
