Ubisoft Will Reportedly Release New ASSASSIN'S CREED and FAR CRY Games by March 2021
During today's Q3 2020 earnings call, Ubisoft revealed some of its plans for the future, with five big-budget video games set to hit stores by March 2021 — and two of these mysterious titles will reportedly be new Assassin's Creed and Far Cry games.
Officially, the studio is planning to release five big productions between April 2020 and March 2021: Watch Dogs: Legion, Gods & Monsters, Tom Clancy's Rainbow 6: Quarantine, and two yet-to-be-announced games.
According to Kotaku's Jason Schreier, fans of Splinter Cell and Prince of Persia can forget about playing new entries in either series anytime soon, as the team at Ubisoft is allegedly slowly getting ready to reveal new Assassin's Creed and Far Cry games. As a reminder, the last major AC video game, AC: Odyssey, was published in October 2018, while we haven't had a new Far Cry project since 2019's Far Cry: New Dawn.
Sadly, there's no chance that Beyond Good & Evil 2 and Skull & Bones will be released before March 2021.
Rumour has it that the next Assassin's Creed will embrace the history and mythology of the Viking era, while we know literally nothing about any possible sequels to Far Cry 5. Given that Ubisoft is currently working on seven major titles and a plethora of smaller ones — like Roller Champions and The Settlers — it's safe to say that the company will start sharing new details on its upcoming games in the very near future.
RIP Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell (2002-2013).
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— Jason Schreier (@jasonschreier) February 6, 2020
