Having pushed several of their major releases back, Ubisoft have had a bit of reshuffling to do, but at least something good came of it as Watch Dogs: Legion, Rainbow Six Quarantine and Gods and monsters are confirmed for PS5 and Scarlett.
In their latest earnings call, Ubisoft announced that all three of the aforementioned games will be launched later than intended, rather than in the first half of 2020. While it hurt their fiscal projections, there's still a silver lining here - cross-gen availability.
Ubisoft's CEO Yves Guillemot said, "The five titles will be on this generation and next generation of consoles, and they will take full advantage of all the new features that are coming with the machines. Which are actually going to be extremely interesting for players, as you’ll be able to download new content a lot faster."
Guillemot is talking about five games here, obviously, and he's referring to two titles that are yet to be announced. They should launch in the same fiscal year and both are confirmed to be AAA titles, but that's about all we know at the moment.
Ubisoft acknowledged that Ghost Recon: Breakpoint was a disappointment and have a few key takeaways, the first of which being that live service game sequels aren't really all the rage. In other words, it requires a different strategy than just doing the same thing and adding a number.
Moving several launch events and announcements from the first half of 2020 means Ubisoft should come to E3 locked and loaded.
While answering questions, Guillemot was asked whether he is interested in more of their games getting cross-play. It turns out that Ubisoft is gunning for cross-play in all the PvP games they have, which is pretty good news.
