Ubisoft has three or four triple-A games set to launch within the year.
There’s a little over a month left in the current fiscal year, which ends on March 31st, but Ubisoft is already announcing plans for next year. During a recent financial earnings call, Ubisoft discussed its plans for content that will come out between April 1st, 2019, and March 31st, 2020, and revealed that there are three or four major games on the way.
While Ubisoft didn’t reveal what these games might be, we can make a few guesses. Ubisoft has previously announced there will be no new Assassin’s Creed game this year, so that’s off the list. One game is a fairly safe bet, however: Skull & Bones, the open-world pirate game that was originally supposed to launch in 2018. That game now has a vague 2019 release date, and is almost certain to be one Ubisoft is counting.
The remaining games are much more unknown, but fans are guessing that they could be anything from Watch Dogs 3 to a new Splinter Cell game to Ubisoft’s take on battle royale. Since Ubisoft wasn’t sure whether there would be three or four big games, it seems likely that one of these projects is earlier on in development, and may or may not make the cutoff to fall in the 2019 fiscal year.
We’re likely to see several of these reveals at E3. Although the gaming conference is still several months off, Ubisoft usually saves a few big reveals for the show. We’ll keep an eye out for any new reports that may pop up in the meantime, however.
