Ubisoft cancels four games, postpones one of its biggest titles – Geeko

The French game publisher Ubisoft announced during the presentation of its quarterly results the cancellation of four projects.

Nothing is going well for Ubisoft, the publisher of WatchDogs, Assassin’s Creed and Far Cry. Faced with the fiasco of several projects, the publisher has chosen to clean up. During the presentation of its quarterly results, Ubisoft announced that it had canceled four projects. Two of them were known: Splinter Cell VR, a new installment in the franchise that was designed specifically for Facebook VR headsets, and Ghost Recon Frontline, a free-to-play FPS that was supposed to give a new twist to the Tom Clancy franchise and should logically have arrived this year on PC and consoles.

The cancellation of Ghost Recon Frontline is probably the most surprising since a beta was supposed to take place in October and the project already seemed very well advanced. It is likely that the quality of the title did not live up to expectations. And casually, four Ubisoft studios were working on this project.

The two canceled projects are not known.

Another major announcement: the postponement of the game Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora, which was supposed to be released in 2022 and will finally be released between April 2023 and March 2024. The title is developed by the creators of The Division and was supposed to be one of the biggest Ubisoft titles to be released this year.
