In their latest financial reports, Ubisoft once again listed an unannounced triple-A game that's due in this fiscal year, and most signs are pointing at Far Cry 6.

Ubisoft's lineup for the current fiscal year, which ends on March 31 2021, hasn't changed from what they announced in February 2020.

At the time, the company listed five titles coming in this time frame -  Watch Dogs: Legion, Gods & Monsters, Rainbow 6: Quarantine and two games which were yet to be revealed. 

Since then we've learned that one of those is Assassin's Creed: Valhalla, which has been quite a hot topic as of late. Ubisoft were delighted with the response to Valhalla, clocking in 100 million trailer views in 10 days and increased engagement in Assassin's Creed: Odyssey and Origins. 

For what it's worth, several industry sources predicted at the time that the two unannounced games are new Assassin's Creed and Far Cry instalments. 

Unfortunately for the fans who were hoping for Prince of Persia or Splinter Cell announcements, you'll have to wait a bit longer, or more like keep waiting.

According to Ubisoft's report, one of these five games may be delayed into the next fiscal year depending on the ongoing health situation across the globe. 

We expect to learn more on their Ubisoft Forward event where they promised exclusive news and reveals.

As for the rest of Ubisoft's lineup, the company reported a strong comeback for Division 2 and the game is said to be performing on par with Assassin's Creed: Odyssey. 

They also announced that 10 of their titles in this console generation sold upwards of 10 million - Assassin's Creed: Unity, Origins and Odyssey, The Division 1 and 2, Far Cry 4 and 5, Ghost Recon: Wildlands, Rainbow Six: Siege, Watch Dogs 1 and 2.
