Ubisoft Has Over 15 Projects In Development, But One Of Them Has Been Canceled

Ubisoft is known for copying and pasting its open-world formula across its portfolio of games, and many people are getting tired of said formula, as seen with Ghost Recon: Breakpoint’s sales. However, the company is in no short supply of pumping out more games according to a recent report, which states over 15 games are in development as we speak.

Although it would be nice to see Sam Fisher suit up and Michael Ironside voice the iconic seasoned agent in a new game, sadly, we are in current year, and that means the chances of woke propaganda and anti-consumer practices showing up are more than high.

Some people speculate that the new IGN report on a now-canceled Ubisoft game was related to Splinter Cell, given that one of the devs, Louis de Carufel, had worked on Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell: Conviction, but we’ll never know.

What we do know is that this “unannounced game” for “current-gen consoles” called for 200 people on the development studio and still didn’t cut it. However, Ubisoft is using those 200 people to work on 15 plus games that are currently in development.

Here’s de Carufel talking about the canceled game and the 15 plus titles in development:


Out of those 15 games, we know that Watch Dogs Legion, Rainbow Six Quarantine, Gods and Monsters, Skull and Bones, Beyond Good and Evil 2, The Settlers, Roller Champions, WiLD, and an Avatar game based on James Cameron’s 2009 film are in the works.

Back in October, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot said that the company’s recent triple-A releases have been met with disappointing reception — much like Ghost Recon: Breakpoint.

Guillemot says this is due to live-service games coming too close together, putting the team in a pickle since they can’t update every game properly. This is where the delays come in to play:

“We are tackling these issues head-on and already are implementing significant changes to our production processes. We are confident in our capacity to adapt and evolve, as we have done successfully many times in the past. In this overall context, we have decided to postpone the releases of Gods & Monsters, Rainbow Six Quarantine and Watch Dogs Legion until 2020-21. While each of these games already has a strong identity and high potential, we want our teams to have more development time to ensure that their respective innovations are perfectly implemented so as to deliver optimal experiences for players.”

I wouldn’t hold my breath on Ubisoft bringing forth decent games moving into the year 2020 and beyond, but in the meantime, what do you think of all of this?
