It looks like we’re going to get some interesting releases from Ubisoft this year, including a new instalment for both Far Cry and Assassin’s Creed, but it seems like Beyond Good and Evil 2 has again dropped from the radar.
Speaking about the AAA titles on the way during a financial call, Ubisoft suggested that three major titles would be dropping between October and December 2020 and two more will then release between January and March 2021.
We’ve also had three of these games confirmed as Gods & Monsters, Rainbow Six: Quarantine and Watch Dogs: Legion.
Jason Schreier has also been able to discern the other two, suggesting that they will be Far Cry and Assassin’s Creed, which means we’re not about to see a new Splinter Cell or Beyond Good and Evil 2 just yet.
The news is pretty depressing for many still waiting for news of the promised Beyond Good and Evil 2 that we saw the trailer for way back in 2017 and 2018, with the CEO of Ubisoft Yves Guillemot merely stating that the game was “not going to be in the five games we announce”.
Whilst we’ve been promised quite a few interesting titles, it’s also important to ask whether this is a good idea, with so many AAA titles pushed into such a small space of time, will the company be able to support and fully assist when it comes to patching issues and providing high-quality experiences rather than just releasing multiple games at a fast rate.
I’d happily see the company release two or three AAA titles instead if they were the quality of Far Cry 3 or Assassin’s Creed 2, rather than something similar to New Dawn, for example.
What do you think about the news?
