Earlier this year, Ubisoft teased it would have five major AAA games set to be released in its next fiscal year. And as part of its most recent earnings call, the publisher underlined that commitment while also confirming four of those games and teasing one in an unannounced franchise will be the fifth game.
In its 2019-2020 report, Ubisoft confirmed that Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, Watch Dogs Legion, Gods & Monsters, and Rainbow Six Quarantine are four of its five previously teased AAA games coming the 2020-2021 fiscal year. However, the fifth game is from “a yet to be announced franchise,” seemingly indicating it is part of a known property in the Ubisoft portfolio.
Ubisoft did not explain further at this time, and so it remains to be seen whether that game could be a new Splinter Cell, a new Far Cry, a new Prince of Persia, or perhaps a new For Honor, or even The Crew 3 – if you feel like disappointment will suit you best.
Ubisoft does have Beyond Good & Evil 2 in the oven, but during that previous earnings report Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot said at the time the long-awaited sequel was not one of these five games.
Ubisoft’s fiscal years typically end on March 31 of that year, so it’s highly likely that we will see whatever this title is before that date in 2021.
