Ubisoft's latest financial call has revealed the French video game giant will be releasing a total of five triple-A games before April next year. Three will arrive in the third quarter of its next financial year (October through to December 2020), and the other two will be released in the fourth quarter (January to March).
At the moment, only three of these games are known. They include Watch Dogs Legion, the Switch bound release Gods & Monsters, and Rainbow Six Quarantine. All of these titles were delayed last October to increase the development time.
So, what are the other two? Apparently, they'll be based on Ubisoft's "biggest" franchises. Kotaku's news editor Jason Schreier seems to think one is a Viking-themed Assassin's Creed title and that the other is a new Far Cry game.
Would you like to see Ubisoft release more triple-A games on the Switch? How about another project with Nintendo? Leave a comment below.
Until they get delayed again.....
Gods & Monsters is on my radar but Ubisoft games are usually hit or miss to me.
I am very interested to find out what Gods and Monsters gameplay is like, E3 did not show us anything about that game other than the art style
Honestly there's not much from Ubisoft's AAA library that interests me personally.
Although I was curious about Watchdogs, I've heard quite mixed things about the series. Some very good, some very bad.
I find Assassin's Creed to be an interesting series but not one I can get into as a game. I'd be more interested to read novels based on the general story ideas, but without the weird reliving the memories of your ancestors or whatever that stuff is.
Assassin's Creed: Ragnarok and Beyond Good and Evil 2.
I don't want AAA from Ubisoft.
I want Petz & Imagine series from Ubisoft.
Hopefully Gods and Monsters lives up to its potential. The concept and early footage sounds like a nice blend of Kid Icarus and Zelda, could be great.
Really hope Mario+Rabbids 2 is in the works as well.
More Rayman plz
I'd like to see the Red Steel series (Red Steel 2 specifically was good. The first one was meh) return or another Brothers In Arms game. Both were super fun back on the Wii but I don't think it's happening...
Rainbow Six and Watch Dogs would be neat for the Switch. Just please no more Assassin's Creed
Assassin’s Creed for sure. Kass was one of my fav characters in the series in years. Left at Black Flag, back for Origin. Odyssey made me a fan again
I played FarCry New Dawn because of FC5 ending. Was ok nothing special. I’ll need to see more.
WatchDog/R6 not for me. Beyond Good and Evil 2 is what I really want.
A new RayMan on Switch be nice... but probably just get more JustDance 🤦♂️
I assume at least 1 means 1.
Lmao 1... and it’ll be later on
Ubisoft games make you do the same thing three times then something else three times before a small cutscene and then one small variation on the first thing three times, until I'm so bored I turn it off. That was starlink, assassins creed, and even in some rayman games. It feels like the player time/developer effort ratio is well off in Ubisoft games.
Gods and monsters!! Man please dont make that game S#ck.
Lol im kinda hyped about that game eventho lil is known about it.
You mean "at max"...
@Agramonte Syndicate is pretty good, but you should be glad you missed Unity lol
If they ever, ever brought back GRAW, give me a call, but for nearly the past decade about the only thing they've been known for is pumping out sequels and then delaying them...
I do hope this Viking game is real
Vikings theme would be awesome. I'll be in my boat ramming foes.
No Wii release? Why UbiSoft?
Most excited for Gods & Monsters. Hopefully the delay will result in a brilliant game and not a cancellation.
All 5 are gonna be horrible. Let’s not kid ourselves. If gods and monsters had any hope, we would have at least seen some gameplay footage by now.
And all the others likely being sequels to their already played-out franchises (1 watch dog was enough) isn’t gonna be impressive...
(((Ubisoft))) is no longer a good gaming company. Everything they make caters towards casual gamers. They have abandoned their original hardcore fanbase of gamers. If you need an example, well just compare splinter cell 1, 2, and 3 (chaos theory) to the casual and watered down trash that was splinter cell blacklist. And assassins creed is garbage also. The fast paced and unrealistic stealth which is Assassins creed doesn't hold a candle when compared to the original splinter cell games. Rainbow six has also become nothing more than a call of duty clone. [Removed]
Come one Gods & Monsters!!
I can't wait for Ubi's next Trials or Mario+Rabbids game.
I wonder when they’ll do anything with Rayman. A new one was rumoured a while ago and I’m surprised they haven’t done a collection, a la Crash and Spyro. That new Watchdogs looks interesting, but they can keep Assassin’s Creed.
@Liam_Doolan You say "Three will arrive in the third quarter of its next financial year (October through to December 2020)". Do you mean this year or 2021? (forgive me if I dont know financial business speak)
Aren't ubisoft making a pirate game? I think it was pushed until this year, although I assume not on the switch. Did they bin it, or is that not classed as major release for them?
Beyond Good and Evil Remaster and 2 would be great ^^
Oh and Prince of Persia Sands of TIme. (Gah, that's 3!)
@GrailUK I would indeed love an "HD" version of Beyond Good and Evil 1 on the Switch. And gods and monsters looks promising, but I won't get my hopes up high. It's Ubisoft afterall.
@Anti-Matter a man of culture I see. Not GOOD culture, but still.
Because i only have interest with Petz and Imagine series from Ubisoft.
I want more Pet Simulation and Girlie games on Nintendo Switch.
I'm more interested in Rayman and Mario + Rabbids 2. Not sure if those qualify as "AAA" but that's what from Ubi.
Meh, I like Ubisoft but their games are becoming too similar to each other. Gods and Monsters look cool, just hope it doesn''t get in the middle of silly alphabet people politics. like with Odyssey.
How about some classic ubi games get re released on the switch? Like the ezio collection
@Anti-Matter Nothing wrong wanting girlie games.
@AG_Awesome Splinter Cell!!!!
I want a new Mario and Rabbids. Not interestes in any other UBI IP.
no suprise Nintendo is only getting one out of the five new Ubisoft games because it's all about next gen consoles
I'd be very happy if Nintendo let the Starlink team make a full-on Star Fox game. They already have a great game engine, just reduce the repetitive base capturing/collectathon bits, focus on a tight story campaign and it could be the perfect Star Fox game.
I wonder how many of these will be classified as “Ubisoft Games”. I just hope they learnt from the Ghost Recon Breakpoint debacle. Looking back I think the last Ubi game I bought was Ghost Recon Future Soldier, which was dull as dishwater compared to the 2 Advanced Warfighter games that found the perfect middle ground between exciting combat and the need for at least some tactical thought and planning.
Almost forgot I had Gods & Monsters on my radar. Also Legion could be fun...could be...
So we can get the witcher on switch but there's just no way in hell to get Assassins creed odyssey on there in any kind of physical form right ubisoft? 😒
So Gods & Monsters isn't due until April at earliest? The pricier portion of the March release calendar on my wishlist sure got unloaded quick. All the more odds of affording Langrisser out the gate, then.
I wish for Rayman 4 but Michel Ancel said he'd like to work on that AFTER the relase of Beyond Good & Evil 2 so I guess that rules it out.
What I'd really like to see Ubisoft do, is experiment with smaller games again, such as they did with Child of Light.
Smaller development costs wouldn't make them that much of a risk for a company like Ubi, and they would make perfect games for the Switch.
I wonder if we're getting AC1 Remastered (maybe next gen gets new AC and current gen gets AC1 Remastered?), especially after that Smash tease of Altair as a Mii costume. Wouldn't it have made more sense to put Ezio as a Mii costume if nothing was being done with AC1 as he's the more iconic assassin.
I'll take any Rainbow Six game form Switch, thank you!
I know this most likely won't be coming to the switch but whatever happened to skull and bones?
Mario + Rabbids 2, please and thank you!
I’m still playing AC Odyssey on my Xbox One X and it’s my favorite Ubisoft game yet. It’s soooo beautiful and huge.
I hope that they do bring back Splinter Cell though.
I love the way they use terms like "AAA" like they're going to be the best thing since sliced bread...
@ObeliskDrakon hahaha... good to know.
They gave AC: Unity on uPlay for Free when the Notre-Dame fire. So in my library, But never downloaded it.
I can't wait to hear more about Beyond Good and Evil 2, but that's most likely going to be a PS5/XBSX game and rightly so given the potential scope. They'll probably need the extra horse power to fully realise their dream/vision and the 8th generation consoles will only hold back that vision from what it could/should be.
I am also looking forward to Watchdogs 3 given how good Watchdogs 2 was/is, and I don't have a problem with Ubisoft delaying their big games because I'd much rather have a polished, complete game instead of a broken game that requires multiple 50gb patches to fix it.
Some gamers are so self entitled. They moan (rightly so) when games release broken, unfinished etc, but they also complain when studios delay a game so as to make sure we're getting what we are paying for, but also as they intended the game to be.
Ubisoft know they messed up with latest Ghost Recon (The Division 2 was pretty good imo) and they admitted as much which is why they have delayed those big releases.
Say what you want about the big three publishers ie Activision, EA and Ubisoft, but atleast Ubisoft have taken ownership of their mistakes over the past few years.
Clearly they have a ways to go, and don't get me started on the MTX, but they aren't as bad as the above mentioned pubs.
I think some gamers believe triple A games are really easy to make, but also £60/$60 is expensive too.
Games are cheaper these days then they were back in the 1990's and yet the cost of development has increased tenfold since then, but some gamers believe they should be cheaper.
Off topic there, but I am sick of reading comments from people that have unrealistic expectations, but are also self entitled.
Let's play games guys and not fanboy wars.
Keep the classics coming to the Switch. I’m not feeling any of these new titles. Plus, GTA is scared of the Saints, Watch Dogs don’t want none of the Gat. Haha. 😆
AAA game= big budget and no gameplay idea
I’m really hoping Gods & Monsters is like a stylized AC game. Not so much in gameplay, but in scope. I need another sprawling, open-world game in my life. I’m hoping it will deliver, but I‘m not expecting it to.
Didn't AAA used to mean a score rating for the best of the best of all time? Like grade A was fantastic but AAA was the best of the fantastic?
Move along. Not coming to Switch.
trailer was pointless...
Prince of Persia please!
Assassins Creed is one of the few series I would prefer to play on my XBoneX. Would be cool to see odyssey or Origin get the Witcher 3 treatment, but not sure I would go it them. It does not help Ubisoft won’t release the full games on cart and demands downloads.
@tendonerd nah, in the gaming industry Triple A usually just means “super high budget.” Just like Hollywood likes to call movies with 200 million dollar budgets “blockbuster films” even if they flop.
I hope it's Ubisoft pod racing sequel.
For the longest time, I was super excited for Skull & Bones (or for a pirate game based on AC IV b4 Skull & Bones was even announced). But now? I dunno, they put so much emphasis on the multiplayer, and it has been sooo long, almost 7 years, and my enthusiasm has ... damped.
They should bring The Division to switch it's a great game just finished 1 and starting 2.
I would love Watch Dogs on Switch
Give us quality, that’s all what matters.
That greek themed gamen is just botw with a wahmen protagonist. How original
Just waiting on gods and monsters.
And wishing they’d port or remake AC 1. I miss the original vision for the story.
@Woomy_NNYes Financial Year (FY) 2020 is from April 2020 to March 2021. We are still in FY2019. So Q3 of the next FY is the fourth quarter of the current Calendar Year (CY). Once we hit April, then things saying next FY will refer to the next CY as well.
@link3710 AHH!!! See, I was ignorant Thanks @link3710!! Mucho helpful. U r Smrt, I tHiNk.
@Ryu_Niiyama I'll be very psyched if Gods & Monsters ends up being a good title.
@Tharsman ah ok. I just remember when Gamespot I think it was would give grades up to and including AA and AAA
