The lights are on
Ubisoft will unveil another new property for next-gen consoles at the upcoming game convention in Germany.The company has also said that it will be revealing a new, smaller scale IP called Child of Light (created by Ubisoft Montreal creative director Patrick Plourde) at the European GDC conference, which takes place before Gamescom.It's not clear whether or not this next-gen IP to be revealed at Gamescom is Child of Light or another, unknown game. According to Ubisoft's most recent financial earnings report, this game will not be out in the current fiscal year, which ends on March 31, 2014. This puts the new game out between April 2014 and March 2015.
[Source: CVG]Our TakeUbisoft has always had a good commitment to trying to create new franchises, with this fall's upcoming Watch Dogs as a good example. Child of Light sounds intriguing, but we do know that it's conceived as a more modest game made by a small team. A brand new triple-A surprise announcement at Gamescom would be exciting indeed. Here's to hoping.

Cool, I've always enjoyed what Ubisoft makes so I hope this is no different.
It could be a more casual game as well, Ubi kind of let their big guns go with Watch Dogs and The Division.
Awesome,i can't wait to see what it is.
Well bring it on Ubisoft. I can't wait to see what you guys have in store for us.
I have always loved Ubisoft, so this has got me pumped!!
Remember folks, Ubisoft is no longer going with the one hitters, nope, all they want is franchises. So regardless of what or how this game turns out, I'm waiting until news of a second, and ratings of it to see whether it'll even be worth getting into.
I would like to see Ubisoft come with another new IP, this is exciting. I just hope it isn't an FPS
i can't wait to find out what it is.
and i also can't wait for an official announcement of far cry 4.
I just finished far cry blood dragon and I would really like to see a full next gen game based on that over the top 80's VHS vibe. Man I loved the dlc and would buy a full game version right now.
Where's my Rainbow Six?! It's been way to long since V2!
