Ubisoft’s most recent earnings call has filled in some of the blanks left over from their previous call. You might remember how Ubisoft was forced to delay some upcoming titles – including Watch Dogs: Legion – due to poor sales reception of Ghost Recon: Breakpoint.
To fire back, Ubisoft has noted how, between October 2020 and March 2021, they will launch five major AAA titles. Three of these are planned to release before the end of 2020.
We already know of three of these titles – Watch Dogs: Legion, Gods & Monsters, and Rainbow Six: Quarantine.
A brief moment of speculation had a possible Assassin’s Creed title as one of the remaining two. Thanks to Kotaku’s Jason Schreier, we can all but confirm Assassin’s Creed will be one of the two games. The latest Far Cry rounds out the set.
The good news for Ubisoft (and it’s fans) doesn’t stop there, however. According to Senior Analyst Daniel Ahmad, Ubisoft will expect to support the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X with HD patches for its line-up of titles.
It isn’t 100% clear on whether this will mean native next-gen versions of the games, or rather current-gen ‘ports’ played through backwards compatibility. Regardless, the news is good for anyone looking forward to any of Ubisoft’s biggest franchises.
Ubisoft should have another announcement in May ahead of E3. Stay tuned to Any Button Gaming for more news on this story as it happens.
