Ubisoft Revealing A 2018 Tentpole Title At E3

During Ubisoft's financial call today, the French publisher teased information about the rest of its year for major games.

With the news that their pirate combat game Skull & Bones is getting delayed to next year, Ubisoft explained that they still expect to release three more major AAA titles this year even without Skull & Bones. Two of the titles are already known, The Crew 2 to be released next month and The Division 2 which will be unveiled at E3 and released this Fall.

The third game, Ubisoft explained, is going to be revealed at E3 and be a major part of Ubisoft's release schedule this financial year. The Wal-Mart Canada leak, which the retailer has claimed was based purely on speculation, suggested that an Assassin's Creed title is on the way, but there have also been rumors of a new Watch Dogs in development. What do you think Ubisoft has in store this year? Let us know below in the comments.

 

Our Take
I feel like the retailer leak was more or less proven by Rage 2 getting announced later, as it is extremely unlikely anyone was speculating about that. Ubisoft might be back to a yearly cycle for Assassin's Creed.
