A trickle of Ubisoft news turned into a downpour today as the publisher took to Twitter to officially announce the development of three major franchise sequels.
Today, Ubisoft’s Twitter account sent out the following tweets which confirm the imminent arrival of Far Cry 5, The Crew 2, and a new Assassin’s Creed game:
Elsewhere, Ubisoft confirmed that South Park: The Fractured But Whole is indeed going to come out at some point.
As for the rest of these games, the additional information provided by Ubisoft via the company’s official forums confirms that each of these titles are scheduled to release sometime before March 2018.
The shock of these announcements range from largely unexpected (The Crew 2) to essentially inevitable (Assassin’s Creed). Somewhere in the middle is Far Cry 5 which has been churning the rumour mill this month with ‘reports’ that the game will come out sometime in 2017 and will be set in the old west. These rumours seem to have been shot down by conflicting sources who state that Far Cry 5 may actually cast players into the role of a cop in a more modern setting. The blue and red siren-esque colour scheme used in the game’s title font does lend these rumors a degree of credibility.
