Ubisoft delayed three of its upcoming games, pushing them into the fiscal year 2020-2021. That window is getting increasingly chock full of Ubisoft games, though, as they will share the space with two more unannounced games from the company’s biggest franchises.
In an investor call, the company announced that two AAA games “from our biggest franchises” are also set for the fiscal period between April 2020 and March 31, 2021. Those two will join Watch Dogs Legion, Gods and Monsters, and Rainbow Six Quarantine, which were given new release windows in the same time frame. And that’s on top of Roller Champions, which was already slated for then.
Ubisoft declined to comment on which franchises these unannounced games belong to, but the mention of the company’s franchises may offer a clue. One is likely the next Assassin’s Creed, which hasn’t had a new entry since 2018’s Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. The next game is rumored to take place in the Viking age.
Assassin’s Creed has recently undergone a transformation into a live game, with loads of post-launch DLC and a regular stream of new events and challenges in Odyssey. One of Ubisoft’s reasons for delaying the trio of games was that its live games are coming too close together and are not well-differentiated from each other.
