Ubisoft has plans to launch five major games before April 2022 according to a recent conference call including Far Cry 6 and the Prince of Persia remake — but Skull & Bones won’t be one of them.
2021 and 2022 are shaping up to be especially busy years for Ubisoft. It announced a major expansion to The Division universe less than one week ago; now, a recent conference call has shared some more details about what we can expect for the future.
Ubisoft Has Big Plans for 2021–2022
As Niki Partners Senior Analyst Daniel “ZhugeEX” Ahmad reports, it’s been a pretty good year for Ubisoft. There are 141 million unique players for its games across all platforms, a 20% increase year-over-year. The Assassin’s Creed franchise, too, has done pretty well with a 50% increase in revenue as compared to last year.
Those are some great numbers, but we’re just getting started — here’s what we can look forward to launching in the time between now and March 31, 2022:
Far Cry 6
Far Cry 6 was first revealed last summer and was supposed to launch earlier this year. Unfortunately, it ended up being delayed for an unspecified period of time. We still don’t have a firm date, but it looks like there won’t be any additional delays for now.
Rainbow Six Quarantine
As with Far Cry 6, Rainbow Six Quarantine also announced a delay late last year. This game is still on track for a release, although we don’t yet know what its new name is going to be. (And no, it’s not Rainbow Six Parasite — at least, not yet.)
Riders Republic is a game that’s all about extreme sports. In what is probably not a surprise to you by now, this game was also delayed earlier this year. Thankfully, there aren’t any additional delay announcements just yet.
The Division Heartland
The Division Heartland is a brand-new game in the Tom Clancy universe that should be launching sometime in the next 10 months or so. You might not have to wait too long to play it, though — you can sign up to test the game on your platform of choice.
First revealed at E3 2019, Roller Champions is a high-speed roller derby game made for the modern age. This game missed its initial launch date, too, but at least it hasn’t been delayed again; hopefully, we can expect to see it launch sometime this year.
Each and every one of the above games has a shot at doing something cool, but this isn’t everything that Ubisoft has on the way; it’s also working on an unspecified number of games including “premium and F2P titles.” There is, however, one upcoming game that won’t launch before April 1, 2022.
When it comes to delayed Ubisoft games, there’s one title that holds the unfortunate crown: Skull & Bones. First revealed at E3 2017, we didn’t hear much about the game for several years until rumors surfaced of a complete and total reboot. Then, the game’s Managing Director Hugues Ricour was removed from his position at Ubisoft Singapore. Now, it’s been revealed that the Skull & Bones release date has been delayed yet again.
“Skull and Bones will now be released in 2022–2023,” read Daniel Ahmad’s report on the Ubisoft conference call.
Despite the wait for Skull & Bones, there are still plenty of Ubisoft titles coming out throughout this fiscal year. Hopefully, you’ll get to play all of these games (and more!) before March 31, 2022.
