Ubisoft will release five AAA games in the 2021 financial year, the company revealed in a financial report on Thursday. Three games will be released in October-December 2020, and two more games will launch in January-March 2021.
“Production of these games is progressing well and each of them comes with great features that set them apart. We also will be releasing other very innovative titles that have a particular focus on social interaction,” Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot said.
Three of the games have been confirmed: Watch Dogs Legion, Gods & Monsters, and Rainbow Six Quarantine. The two other games should be new Far Cry and Assassin’s Creed installments, according to insider Jason Schreier on Twitter.
Unfortunately, there’s no news about a new Splinter Cell game or Beyond Good & Evil 2. It seems like all Ubisoft is interested in now are its regular and well-promoted franchises. But anyway, there will be much more concrete information later this year. Let’s hope that E3 will reveal something about Beyond Good & Evil.
Here are some other tidbits revealed in Ubisoft’s financial report:
The amount of registered Rainbow Six Siege players has exceeded 55 million. The game set a record in December 2019 for Monthly Active Users.
Assassin’s Creed Odyssey sellthroughs have increased by 50% and daily engagement by 60% in comparison with Assassin’s Creed Origins.
Ubisoft’s overall revenue is not doing that well. The company’s net bookings for the last nine months of 2019 amounted to $1.23 billion, which is 17% less than the year before.
Despite that, Uplay revenue rose 73% in the first nine months of 2019. The store is the fourth-leading digital platform for the company, comprising 40% of its income on the PC market.
