Ubisoft went through their financial year 2017 and they speak about their plans and letting it boil down to their kind of moving their focus away. Ubisoft have five major releases planned for the financial year 2018 which ends on March 31st 2018. And these includes Assassins Creed, Far Cry 5 which just got announced earlier but no actual real details. Assuming we are going to know that at E3.
The Crew 2 and South Park: The Fractured But Whole but they only have 4 major releases for 2019 which goes from April 1st 2018 through to March the following year. Now one of these is actually a brand new IP which is pretty interesting. It’s good to see them kind of pulling back a little bit because this focus on more on quality rather that quantity and obviously they definitely learned from the lessons of the last few years as we saw with them puling back from Assassins Creed for a couple of years. Hopefully t he new one will be good and at the time away will have done the developers good. It’ll be feel like a breath of fresh year to be honest it is a very stagnant series. For instance Syndicate was a good game in general and a lot of gamers want to see some life again in the series.
It’s still unknown what this new IP is, it could be anything if they are publishing Steep then the options are literally limitless as to what the new IP could be. But more people are going to be interested in Far Cry 5 but as iv’e mentioned before we are going to wait E3 for that.
My guess is that Ubisoft is going to release the next Assassins Creed in October/November time this year as they have mentioned already on their Twitter account that says:

And then early next year we’ll get Far Cry 5. Also South Park may also release this year as well considering how heavily that’s been delayed.
Let me know your thoughts on this in the comment section below, we’d love to hear from you as always.
