Verified insider Tom Henderson citing his own sources told about Ubisoft’s plans to host a massive showcase showcasing both highly anticipated and unannounced games.
The latter include the sequel Immortals Fenyx Rising (pre-production, possibly Ubisoft Quebec), the new Prince of Persia (2.5D, Ori style, Ubisoft Montpellier) and The Crew 3 / Project Orlando (announced 2022, Ubisoft Ivory Tower).
As for Assassin’s Creed, the release of the relatively modest Rift is expected in the first half of 2023, while with the launch of the rumored Infinity, Henderson advises not to wait until 2024-2025.
Henderson also addressed the already confirmed Ubisoft games:
- Roller Champions (Late Spring 2022) – ready for release;
- The Division Heartland (expected mid-2022) – almost ready for release;
- Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope (2022) – Development going well;
- Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora (until April 2023) – new trailer is ready, more details in the coming months;
- Skull & Bones (until April 2023) – Ubisoft has finally figured out what it wants from the game;
- XDefiant (not before the end of 2022) – has undergone significant changes compared to the announcement;
- The Division Mobile (near future) – expected release after Heartland, two more mobile games (one of which may be based on Assassin’s Creed) in development;
- a remake of Splinter Cell (2024–2025) – still in early development;
- Ghost Recon Frontline (unknown) – Ubisoft’s main NFT playground;
- Prince of Persia: Sands of Time Remake (unknown) – still in active development;
- Beyond Good & Evil 2 (unknown) – Ubisoft spent too much money on the game to abandon it. Don’t expect any news any time soon.
According to Henderson, the Ubisoft presentation should take place before E3 2022, but due to recent events, it could be postponed. In total, the publisher will show 20 games in the near future (announcements, news, release dates, trailers).
