Despite Ubisoft’s history of cancelling projects, the gaming community remains concerned about the status of several titles. Gamers are uncertain whether these projects are still alive and in active development, or if they should brace themselves for potential disappointing news.
Ubisoft cancels anticipated sequel, The Crew 3, and Prince of Persia The Lost Crown.
Last year, insider Tom Henderson unveiled a list of ongoing Ubisoft projects, which included The Crew 3 and the highly anticipated new title, Prince of Persia The Lost Crown. Henderson demonstrated an accurate knowledge of these two titles. However, among the listed projects was also a sequel to a beloved franchise. Unfortunately, fans will be disheartened to learn that Ubisoft has decided to abandon all these projects altogether.
Far Cry 7: A Long-Awaited Sequel
The disappointment of players has turned into excitement as reassuring news about the Far Cry franchise emerges. Despite initial doubts, the much-anticipated projects of Far Cry 7 and the enigmatic spin-off titled “Project Maverick” are indeed alive. Players express their joy on social media, demonstrating their strong attachment to the series, resulting in a rising Metacritic score ranging from 7.5 to 7.7/10.
Far Cry 7: A Fresh and Promising Episode
In addition to maintaining the ongoing success of Assassin’s Creed, Ubisoft is going all out on the Far Cry saga with two projects already well into development. Among them is “Project Maverick,” a multiplayer spin-off featuring “extraction” gameplay, reminiscent of Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2’s DMZ modes and Battlefield 2042’s Hazard Zone. This initiative is already generating excitement among fans, who are eager to embark on new intense adventures.
Splinter Cell Remake: Shrouded in Anticipation
Despite the buzz surrounding Far Cry, the much-awaited announcement of the Splinter Cell remake is still pending. Following a disappointing tease, fans are eagerly seeking any signs of information from Ubisoft. However, the publisher seems to favor a more restrained communication approach. Players hope that this silence will be compensated with thrilling announcements after the releases of Star Wars Outlaws in 2024 and Avatar Frontiers of Pandora, scheduled for December 7, 2023. Ubisoft assures that their priority is to deliver a remake that lives up to expectations, aiming to establish a solid foundation for the franchise’s future.
Ubisoft cancels three projects due to handling too many simultaneous developments. CEO Yves Guillemot aims to launch several games by 2024. A leak reveals plans for around 11 titles in 2023-24, including Assassin’s Creed Mirage and Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora. Employee concerns over working conditions and low pay remain, with Ubisoft Paris studio holding a strike. Internal issues need resolution before further game publishing.
