With the end of the year fast approaching, companies are routinely reporting on their performance in the current fiscal year and their hopes for the next. One such company is Ubisoft who recently revealed their plan of action for both the current-gen and next-gen consoles. During a recent earnings announcement, the publisher confirmed that they have five game in development for the PS5 and Xbox’s Project Scarlett.
Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot announced in a Q&A session after the reveal of the publisher’s fiscal earnings for the quarter that Watch Dogs: Legion, Gods & Monsters, and Rainbow Six Quarantine (all of which were recently delayed) would be cross-generation releases, along with two other unannounced games.
He stated, “The five titles will be on this generation and next generation of consoles, and they will take full advantage of all new features that are coming with the machines. Which are actually going to be extremely interesting for players, as you’ll be able to download new content a lot faster.”
Guillemot also highlighted that players will experience better framerates on the new consoles while also being optimistic about launching new titles in the next fiscal year. While we know of three games, there is no news on the two unannounced titles. Presumably, one will be another entry in the Assassin’s Creed franchise, while the other may be a completely new IP or the rumored Splinter Cell title.
While it is still some time before the next generation of consoles will be released, it is exciting to know that there are some games in development for them. Ubisoft has not had the best year, but it is good to know that the publisher is looking toward the future.
