Ubisoft took a major hit last year as it declared long delays of important releases such as Watch Dogs Legion, Rainbow Six Quarantine, and Gods and Monsters, after the failures of Ghost Recon Breakpoint and, to a lesser extent, The Section 2. CEO Yves Guillemot said in the time that although the waits”will have a very considerable effect on our financial results” for the calendar year,”we want our teams to have more development time to make sure their individual innovations are flawlessly executed in order to deliver optimum experiences for gamers.”
At the moment, all three matches were transferred into the organization’s 2020-21 financial year, which starts on April 1. ) Throughout the Q3 investors predict, Guillemot verified the 3 matches stay on course, and two other unnamed matches: Three”triple A” are now slated to launch in the next quarter of this season –between October 1 and December 31, 2020, the significant holiday season–and 2 are put for the fourth quarter.
“We’re excited by the possibility of the lineup. The competitive environment will be hard, but our generation is progressing nicely, and our games will benefit from powerful differentiation pillars. In addition, we think we have a well rounded launch program planned. It’s not the first time we’ve had several releases in a specific calendar year, together with five triple-As in fiscal year 15,” Guillemot said during the telephone.
“Along with also the year won’t be limited to those five matches, as we shall also release names with profound social layers, such as Roller Champions.” (For much more on what”profound social layer” means, check out Phil’s guide to making friends in the sport.)
Regrettably for anyone trusting that Beyond Good and Evil 2, which was first shown to the world in 2008 (no, not 2018, 2008), may be a part of the lineup, it doesn’t:”About BG&Etwo, we can not offer you more info,” Guillemot said,”except that it is not likely be from the five matches we’ll announce.”
