Ubisoft Has an Unannounced AAA Game In a Big Franchise Due Out Soon

Ubisoft Has an Unannounced AAA Game In a Big Franchise Due Out Soon

Matt Lorrigan

Ubisoft has revealed the existence of one more unannounced triple-A game due out before the end of the fiscal year in the company's latest financial report.

When listing the slate of games due out before 31st March 2021, including Assassin's Creed Valhalla, Watch Dogs Legion, Rainbow Six Quarantine and Gods & Monsters, Ubisoft also listed one other "unannounced AAA title", described to be coming from one of Ubisoft's "biggest franchises". We don't know what it is yet, but we do have a good idea of what it won't be - with Watch Dogs, Assassin's Creed and Rainbow Six all accounted for, we can probably rule new titles in those franchises out.

If we're looking to Ubisoft's remaining big franchises, this could maybe be Rayman, although the limbless hero's recent outings aren't exactly AAA. Prince of Persia would be lovely, but I'm not convinced that Ubisoft would want a PoP game competing against Assassin's Creed. The most likely is a new Far Cry game following 2019's Far Cry New Dawn, or maybe a new Ghost Recon game, but the most exciting prospect is a new Splinter Cell game. We haven't seen a new title in the stealth series since Blacklist in 2013, and despite Sam Fisher popping up in Ghost Recon: Wildlands, we've heard nothing on the franchise for a long time. Whatever this AAA title is, we assume it will be unveiled during Ubisoft's recently announced, fully digital "Ubisoft Forward" event in July.

  • Prince of Persia? One can hope, right?
  • Would really love to finally have a release date for Beyond Good & Evil 2.
  • Surely prince of Persia
  • Though would love a splinter cell remaster
  • I'm desperatly hoping for a new Prince of Persia but the chances are slim, so I expect a new Far Cry here.
  • Ubi don’t care about it’s own beloved franchises... I wish to believe that it would be new Prince of Persia or Splinter cell but I’m guessing that it would be next Farcry...
  • It's definitely Far Cry. But I'd love a new Splinter Cell. Never played Prince of Persia but I'd try it.
  • I've given up hope on a new Splinter Cell but I'll take another Far Cry.
  • Hopefully not Far Cry. Yeah, the games are fun but there's so little done from one game to the next in terms of varying up the gameplay, that every time I see a new one is being released I ask myself, "what's the point?"
  • My wish list: - Steep 2 - The Crew EU
  • Most wanted Ubisoft game: Splinter Cell and Prince of Persia Game that we will get which bring the most profit, MTX, Booster pack, minimal effort, huge empty world with boring fetch quests and repetitive encounter: Far Cry 6
  • You can never top Far Cry 3, so why try? If it is FC6
  • It's gpoing to disappoint most of you, because it a new Raving Rabbids game. INstead of going the Cam route this time, it is going to go more towards the TV Series & along with that, they'll be announcing a return of the series with new episodes.
  • Again, there's no Prince of Persia...
  • But we've got Valhalla, worth it ✌
  • I figure it will be Splinter Cell but I'd like to see a 3D Platformer game in the Rayman universe.
  • It's one of those dumb bike games they always release during E3. Like they launch it after they would show the trailer. They call it AAA since one of them tied into Blood Dragon. Don't expect a real AAA game. It might also be a shitty Just Dance game, they also consider those AAA.
