We've got some huge new details on upcoming plans from Ubisoft courtesy of Tom Henderson at Xfire, who's advised that "a big games showcase event has been in the works for some time", stating that "a total of 20 games are lined up and ready for some form of an announcement in the near future."
The games he's listed include plenty of titles we already knew about, including Skull & Bones, Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora, Assassin's Creed Infinity, Roller Champions, Splinter Cell, Beyond Good and Evil 2, Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, and much more. These all have varying possible release windows (some many years away), but they have the potential of making at least some kind of appearance at the reported showcase event soon.
The particularly interesting part of this article relates to the previously unannounced games that are mentioned. We're apparently getting an Immortals Fenyx Rising 2, with the game currently in pre-production stage, a new 2.5D Prince of Persia game is seemingly in the works and "takes inspiration from Ori", and The Crew 3 is said to have "been in development for some time" and could potentially be announced later in 2022.
The smaller-style Assassin's Creed game that was mentioned earlier this year is also apparently still in the works (known as 'Rift') and was originally intended as DLC for Assassin's Creed Valhalla, but will now be a standalone game.
Lots to chew on there, then! In regards to the showcase itself, Henderson advises that it appears to have been delayed internally for now due to "recent world events", so we may have to wait a little longer until we get an official announcement.
Excited for any of these games? Let us know down in the comments section below.
