Ubisoft has released its latest quarterly earnings report, and with it, has told investors about the company’s upcoming plans. Over the next year, Ubisoft plans to release five new triple-A games, alongside smaller titles. Only three of them have been officially announced, but we can make educated guesses about the other two upcoming PC games. (Sorry, Splinter Cell isn’t one of them.)
“We have evolved our organizational structure in recent months in order to strengthen our focus on high-potential titles,” CEO Yves Guillemot says in a press release, referencing a series of delays after Ghost Recon Breakpoint failed to meet sales and player expectations, “and we are very excited about the idea of releasing five new triple-A games in 2020-21.”
During a conference call, Guillemot confirms that three of the titles will be released in Q3 (between October 1 and December 31, 2020), and the other two will launch in Q4 (January 1 and March 31, 2020). Guillemot also confirms that Beyond Good & Evil 2 is not one of the five titles – so expect it no sooner than April 2021.
The Rainbow Six Quarantine release date, the Watch Dogs Legion release date, and the Gods and Monsters release date are all officially scheduled to hit in the coming fiscal year. That accounts for three of the five titles. While we haven’t heard much about it yet, insiders suggest that the fourth will be a new Far Cry title.
Anyone holding out hope for Splinter Cell is, once again, going to be disappointed. Sorry! (It’s AC and Far Cry.) https://t.co/7hKDV3y5QS

There’s no uncertainty on the other unannounced game, though: it will almost certainly be the next Assassin’s Creed. While the specific ‘Ragnarok’ rumours are extremely shaky, Assassin’s Creed with vikings is by all accounts the next big step for the series.
