During their annual earnings report today Ubisoft revealed some pretty big news, confirming that there will be four new big games from the publisher over the next year.
These new games will include new versions of Assassin’s Creed, Far Cry, The Crew, and South Park.
You may notice that South Park is on that list but has already been announced as South Park: The Fractured But Whole, well that’s because it’s original December of last year release was recently delayed until 2017.
Alongside that, Ubisoft will be releasing a new Assassin’s Creed that will be set in ancient Egypt, as well as Far Cry 5, which is rumoured to be set in Montana and follow on from Far Cry Primal, and finally, The Crew 2.
Ubisoft boss Yves Guillemot said the following about the news:
“Over the last three fiscal years, Ubisoft has – with remarkable success – created numerous new brands and rebooted Rainbow Six and Ghost Recon... In 2017-18 we will see the exciting returns of Assassin’s Creed, Far Cry, The Crew and South Park. In 2018-19 we intend to pursue our digital transformation and consolidate our new business model, which is much more recurring and more profitable and is now significantly less exposed to new releases.”
We expect to see and hear more about these games during E3 2017, which Ubisoft also confirmed that they will be attending and hosting a press event for on Monday, June 12th at 1 PM PT.
