Even after the recent world premiere of Ubisoft Paris’ Ghost Recon Breakpoint just this past week, it seems that more is on the way from the publisher as three unannounced titles are said to be announced the coming year.
This was revealed in the company’s latest earnings call where it shares that alongside the October-set title, three other titles are expected to be announced and launch before the end of Q4 2019.
“A strong growth for new releases, with four AAA titles, including Ghost Recon® Breakpoint and three other titles that will be revealed later and released in the fourth fiscal quarter.”
Following the reveal of the few unnamed titles, the report also reconfirms that the 2017 announced Skull & Bones have been delayed once again as reported the same day.
From recent speculation that have surfaced just this week alone, there is some idea of what could possibly be revealed later this year and potentially even this approaching June. The now debunked Splinter Cell title is one culprit following the recent tweet from Ubisoft Creative Director Julian Gerighty this past Tuesday allegedly announcing the development of the unannounced Tom Clancy title.
Despite Ubisoft jumping on the noise that surfaced from Gerighty’s tweet, many fans aren’t convinced that this was simply a drunken joke from the Ubisoft Summit. And countless fans will be holding their hopes close to their chest leading up to the Los Angeles-held event next month.
Another potential title announcement this coming year is the third installment for the Watch Dogs series. With more tangible evidence as the game’s UK account recently surfaced on Twitter, there’s a hefty implication we will see a reveal in the coming weeks. Especially as the location for the title has been hinted previously, this couldn’t just be a coincidence.
As for the best assumption pointing towards the third announcement, it’s best to keep it safe and guess we will see Just Dance 2020 being revealed later this year. As the annual title has yet to break it’s cycle since being announced back in 2010, it is hard to believe Ubisoft will skip a 2019 announcement.
Looking at the report, regardless of the titles being announced at E3 or even later, this doesn’t mean the titles will be available in 2019 particularly. As the expected time frame leads to the end of the fourth quarter for the fiscal year, we could expect a game release as late as March 2020.
What do you think could possibly be announced within the year?
