Ubisoft postponed the premiere of two games today and canceled four productions. The company has to face internal issues and is looking for its own big success – which is why Avatar has been given extra time, and we will have to wait longer for one story from the Assassin’s Creed series.
Kotaku Editors She published an interesting report about Ubisoft – according to Ethan Gach, the French company is looking for its next big success and that is why today it was decided to announce long delays and the cancellation of several games.
The journalist confirms that Probably the “smaller, unannounced premium game” is Assassin’s Creed Rift, part of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, mentioned by Jason Schreyer last year. The game was supposed to fill a hole in the premiere calendar, but according to Kotaku: Two sources familiar with Ubisoft’s plans said production “despite the rush to complete” it faces “new challenges”.
Ethan Gatch also stated that “Assassin’s Creed remains one of the few bright spots for the company” and that the French company will be working on Assassin’s Creed Red (the working title).
According to editor Kotaku and Jason Schreier of Bloomberg – The title will be part of Assassin’s Creed Infinity (a great hub for all the stories from this IP) and “according to two sources familiar with its development, it will be set in Asia.” However, Gach couldn’t confirm that it would actually be Japan (as Jeff Group recently mentioned).
Kotaku mentions additional problems – apparently even Ubisoft employees do not believe in the success of Skull & Bones, and “smaller increases, job cuts and various frozen budgets” are badly affecting the company, which is set to leave more major developers.
