Insider Tom Henderson has revealed that Ubisoft may be working on a third Ubisoft Forward-style event, where the publisher will be ready to reveal a wide variety of new games.
This event was originally planned for the summer, close to E3, but “recent world events have apparently put those plans on hold.”
Overall, Ubisoft would have “a total of 20 games” that would be “lined up and ready for some form of announcement in the near future”, among which we would find a Or I-inspired Prince of Persia 2.5 game and a sequel to Immortals Fenyx Rising.
In addition to what has already been announced Sands of Time Remake“a second Prince of Persia The title would be in preparation at Ubisoft, Ubisoft Montpellier being involved in the project.
The Montpellier studio has recently worked on acclaimed 2D platforms including Legends of Raymanand also leads development efforts on the highly anticipated Beyond Good and Evil 2 (which, at least officially, is still in the making, despite the departure of Michel Ancel from the team).
Development is also reportedly underway on The crew 3. the said Orlando Project fled last year and was first considered a The crew 2 DLC, but would now be a full game.
“It will be an all-new game with a new driving engine and other overhauls,” and it could be “announced later this year,” having been “in development for a while” now.
A Immortals Fenyx Rising A sequel is also reportedly in development, as Ubisoft Quebec’s take on Greek mythology has “apparently pleased” Ubisoft executives in terms of business performance.
The Canadian developer is working on the next Assassin’s Creed Infinity alongside this new project, but “has hired talent for the title”.
As of now, none of these details have been confirmed, so there are only rumors for now.
Sure enough, Ubisoft apparently has a pretty busy pipeline of games coming over the next two-plus years, so fans should expect some announcements shortly.
