Ubisoft Is Reportedly Releasing Five AAA Titles Between October 2020 Through March 2021

We know a few of the big games coming down the pipeline from Ubisoft but it looks like the team is a bit busier than we thought because Ubisoft is expected to release five AAA titles between October 2020 through March 2021.

Known video game analyst Daniel Ahmad reports that Ubisoft has a very busy quarter planned per a recent earnings call, though we do know about three of the five games already. The confirmed games we know so far include Watch Dogs: Legion, Gods and Monsters, and Rainbow Six Quarantine. Additionally, we think that the new Assassin’s Creed may be included in that line up as well given all oft he in-depth leaks, rumors, and even video footage. 

2019 didn’t see a new Assassin’s Creed game, though 2018’s Odyssey received a plethora of fully fleshed out expansions that almost felt like an entirely new game. Since the team over at Ubisoft decided to pump the breaks a bit on annual releases, though the studio has been working on a new Assassin’s Creed, a 2020/2021 launch for a new release only makes sense. 

According to numerous leaks, the next Assassin’s Creed franchise will be centered around Vikings with Assassin’s Creed: Ragnarok. While not confirmed, the leaks are a little too universal and intricate to be made up, especially when looking at the extensive retail “oopsies” that have occurred as well. 

Watch Dogs Legion was supposed to release on March 6, 2020 but Ghost Recon Breakpoint’s poor reception inspired Ubisoft to take another step back and slow down the pace a little bit. The same decision was made for the Assassin’s Creed franchise and the result ended with Odyssey being one of the top-rated games in the franchise and an entry many called the revival they were hoping for. 

Ubisoft has confirmed that they will have more to reveal in mid-May and, of course, we’ll also be seeing them once more during E3 in June.
