Insider Tom Henderson has revealed that Ubisoft could be working on a third Ubisoft Forward-style event, where the publisher would be ready to reveal a huge variety of new games.
This event was originally expected in Summer, close to E3, but “recent world events seemingly put those plans on hold”.
Overall, Ubisoft is reported to have “a total of 20 games” that would be “lined up and ready for some form of an announcement in the near future,” among which we’d find an Ori-inspired Prince of Persia 2.5 game and a follow up to Immortals Fenyx Rising.
On top of the already announced Sands of Time Remake, “a second Prince of Persia title is reportedly in the works at Ubisoft, with Ubisoft Montpellier being involved in the project.”
Montpellier studio has recently worked on acclaimed 2D platformers, including Rayman Legends, and is also leading development efforts on the much anticipated Beyond Good and Evil 2 (which, at least officially, is still in the making, despite Michel Ancel leaving the team).
Development is also said to be underway on The Crew 3. The so-called Project Orlando leaked last year and was initially thought to be a The Crew 2 DLC, but is now reportedly a full game.
“It will be a brand new game featuring a new driving engine and other overhauls,” and it could be “announced later this year,” having been “in development for some time” now.
An Immortals Fenyx Rising sequel is also said to be in development, as Ubisoft Quebec’s take on Greek mythology has “apparently pleased” Ubisoft’s executives in terms of commercial performance.
The Canadian developer is working on the upcoming Assassin’s Creed Infinity alongside this new project, but “has been hiring talent for the title”.
At this moment, none of these details have been confirmed, so there are just rumors for now.
Sure enough, Ubisoft seemingly has a quite busy pipeline of games coming over the next couple years and more, so fans should expect announcements shortly.
