A new Assassin’s Creed, Watch Dogs, and Rainbow Six are amongst the games believed to be on Ubisoft’s schedules for the next 14 months.

2019 will not go down as a classic year for Ubisoft, after disappointing sales for The Division 2 and Ghost Recon Breakpoint led them to admit that many of their games were too samey and not of high enough quality.

To their credit, their response was to delay everything they’re working on and try and make sure their next games do not suffer from the same problems, which means they’ve now got quite the backlog.

In a financial call to investors Ubisoft said they had five triple-A games due for release before April 2021. Three of those will be out this autumn and the other two between January and March next year.

Ubisoft confirmed three of the games in question were Watch Dogs: Legion, Gods & Monsters, and Rainbow Six Quarantine. They didn’t say those were necessarily the ones out this year, but at least one of them will be – most likely Watch Dogs: Legion.

The other two games were not mentioned by name but according to Kotaku news editor Jason Schreier they are the much-rumoured new Assassin’s Creed game and a new Far Cry game.

Assassin’s Creed is traditionally released just before Christmas, so it’s a good bet that’s one of the games for this year. The last three Far Cry games have all been released in February or March, so that in turn is likely to be one of the 2021 titles.

It’s harder to guess which side of the calendar Gods & Monsters and Rainbow Six Quarantine will fall on though, as very little has been seen of either in public.

What’s also interesting about the announcement, and rumours, is the games that were not mentioned. There was no reference to Skull & Bones or Beyond Good And Evil 2, which suggests that the latter in particular is still years away from completion.
