Ubisoft have officially confirmed that Watch Dogs Legion, Rainbow Six Quarantine and Gods and Monsters will launch on next-generation consoles once they release in 2020.
During their financial report, Ubisoft have officially confirmed that three of their upcoming titles will launch on next-generation consoles - PlayStation 5 and Xbox Project Scarlett. Watch Dogs Legion, Rainbow Six Quarantine and Gods & Monsters are currently scheduled to release on current-gen consoles and PC but Ubisoft plan to re-launch enhanced versions of these games once the new consoles arrive in 2020.
"Gods & Monsters, Rainbow Six Quarantine and Watch Dogs Legion will be released between Q2 and Q3 of next fiscal year [July-December 2020] and will be optimised for the next generation of consoles," said chief financial officer, Frederick Duguet.
Of course, it's not surprising that Ubisoft want to take advantage of the powerful new hardware, especially since their new titles are initially launching so close to the release date of the new consoles. Ubisoft also confirmed that they have five new titles scheduled for release in the next fiscal year.
Three of these are the already mentioned Watch Dogs Legion, Rainbow Six Quarantine and Gods & Monsters and it's possible that these will be joined by the next Assassin's Creed title. Beyond Good and Evil 2 could be the title to complete Ubisoft's releases in 2020.
Ubisoft are yet to announce the next Assassin's Creed game and Beyond Good and Evil 2 is yet to get a release window so all of this is just pure guesswork at the moment.
Hopefully, we won't have to wait for too long for more details on these titles but we doubt that the company will reveal anything major before the world's biggest gaming expo - E3.
