Ubisoft Is Working On An Unannounced AAA Game, Planned For An Early 2016 Release
Ubisoft, the creator of Far Cry, Assassin’s Creed and plenty of other amazing games, is currently working on a new AAA game that is yet to be announced. The news was confirmed as part of the company’s latest earnings report.
Ubisoft hasn’t shared anything about game apart from its existence, but the publisher said it will release this “AAA” title during its current fiscal year. This suggest that Ubisoft plans to release this title before April 2016.
The company also confirmed that they don’t have any plans to release the title on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. According to a Ubisoft rep, they won’t be announcing the game E3 next month but expect news this fall.
Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot was asked if the game in question is a new IP or a sequel? Guillemot refused to comment on the matter for the time being.
If we were to speculate, the first game that comes to mind is Watch Dogs 2. Ubisoft has been blunt about its return at some point and some recent events suggest that the title is indeed in the works.
Senior Gameplay Programmer Julien Risse, mentioned Watch Dogs 2 on his LinkedIn profile. He said that he worked on Watch Dogs 2, Watch Dogs and Bad Blood DLC.
This was the first time the title was referred to as Watch Dogs 2.
Ubisoft has some exciting content planned for us in the next year or so. They announced Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate earlier, but delayed The Division to 2016.
Come this fall, we’ll know what Ubisoft’s new AAA game is.
