The Ubisoft Corporation has struggled financially in 2018 – 19. Losses have reached a boiling point, forcing for the video game publisher to delay upcoming projections until the 2020 – 21 Fiscal Year. All titles mentioned in this article won’t release until April 2020 to March 2021, meaning notable franchises like Assassins Creed or Tom Clancy won’t return until the PlayStation 5 and Xbox X. This announcement came from the chief executive officer with Ubisoft, Yves Guillemot.
This doesn’t mean that supporters of Ubisoft won’t have anything to experience in 2020. Three notable releases are coming over the next twelve months. The 1st is Watch Dogs Legion, which is being designed by Ubisoft Toronto. It’s the third time that Ubisoft is developing an open-world cyber drama, with this location taking players to modern-era London. The specific factor to this game is that consumers can engage with any of the NPC’s throughout the world, making the experience the furthest thing from linear. It was initially planned that this title would launch on March 6th, with that timeframe presumably delayed until the 2020 Holiday Season. This would prompt increased sales for Ubisoft and provide the Toronto location with additional time for development. Unfortunately, no confirmation for an updated release schedule has been submitted.
Tom Clancy & Assassins Creed
Two of the most significant franchise maintained by the Ubisoft corporation include Assassins Creed and Tom Clancy. The Rainbow Six series for Tom Clancy is returning in 2020 with “Six Quarantine”, which is created for three-player teams. Based on co-operation, this tactical shooters will pit players against unworldly threats. Unfortunately, the Six Quarantine title for Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six won’t release until the planned 2020-21 fiscal year. Considering that the next generation of consoles is set to release for the upcoming holiday season, this title will surely be released for the PS5 and Xbox X.
The one title that gamers worldwide are clamouring for with Ubisoft is the next iteration in Assassins Creed. After the prominent sales with Odyssey and Origins, thousands of new enthusiasts wait for the next title in this series. The Ubisoft corporation hasn’t provided any insight regarding this in-development game, which is historically set throughout the Viking Era. Rumours indicate this will be a cross-generational title for previous and upcoming consoles. This means players with a PS4 or PS5 can engage with Assassins Creed: Viking, this extends to the Xbox One and Xbox X. It’s known that the latest entry is currently in development at Ubisoft Montreal.
