Seriously though, I was disappointed with their show outside of Fenyx Rising. Their over-reliance on GaaS games puts most of their games under a similar template and I’m hoping for something new. A Splinter Cell announcement would go a long way to earning excitement.
You are half not right there. Towards the end of this gen their games followed a very similar template and almost felt like the game came off a production line lol. They do need to start differentiating their games, but they won’t because they have gone down the GaaS route.
To be fair I have not played one since unity, but just assasination missions and loot collecting are really boring to me.
I like open world games like RDR2 where every mission has a purpose that is real.
When you list out every major Ubisoft release in the next six months it’s pretty crazy (because Watch Dogs Legion and Immortals Fenyx Rising are releasing later than planned), even without including smaller stuff like Scott Pilgrim and Roller Champions.
Agreed. I have 4 Ubisoft games in the next 4 months.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla (November)
Far Cry 6 (February)
Immortals Fenyx Rising (December)
Watch Dogs Legion (November)
Ubisoft also has Beyond Good and Evil 2 down the line as well as Avatar from Massive. As for Skull & Bones, please no, I don’t want it to be Sea of Thieves. It looked great a few years ago. Just needs to be the pirate version of Black Flag. Give me my fucking pirate game you assholes!!! The blueprint is right there!!! SMH.
(cries) because I know im not getting the pirate game that I want (cries)
maybe after the whole open world cancer dies down at their company. The only reason PoP is back is it’s just a remake, they probably had to sit down and cry about how it’s going against their open world ethos to bring back one of their games from a time not ridden by their current approach to every IP.
