Ubisoft fans have been hitting it hard, with games such as Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege, For Honor, and Just Dance 2020 hitting home for the french video games publisher and developer. Here’s the scoop as we learn at least five games are planned for 2021.
With our year already getting off to a wild start of game delays, game releases, and news, we’re already beginning to start honing in on what could be one of the biggest years as the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One begin to wind things down as their lifecycles prepare to come to a – albeit slow – halt when their successors launch this holiday season.
Ubisoft, among many developers and publishers, is already preparing to gear things up for the next generation of consoles as they’ve outlined that they are expecting to release five triple-A games by March 2021. Three of which are expected to arrive before the end of December 2020, and it seems that each and every title will support the PlayStation 5’s ecosystem in one way or another.
The games we already expect to launch and have confirmed the release of Watch Dogs Legion, Gods & Monsters, and Rainbow Six: Quarantine as three of the assured titles to launch before the end of the year. There’s already been massive hints that the next Assassin’s Creed has already been in steady development soon as development for Assassin’s Creed Odyssey concluded. If rumors are true, we could see Assassin’s Creed: Ragnarok (rumored title) get a release later this year.
There are already reports from senior analyst Daniel Ahmad on Twitter stating that Ubisoft is expected to support PlayStation 5 with patches for its line-up of titles, almost confirming that the games will be backwards compatible with the console, something Sony has been tiptoing around for quite some time.
Other titles could include launch-day titles for PlayStation 5 and Xbox One including unannounced Far Cry and the long-awaited Skull and Bones, which has been seemingly shelved since early 2019 after an unexpected delay had been announced.
