After being delayed, Ubisoft confirmed that Watch_Dogs Legion, Gods & Monsters and Rainbow Six Quarantine are coming to the current-gen of consoles and the PS5 and Xbox Scarlett.
This isn’t the first time that Ubisoft has made a game, only to remake it for next-gen. Assassin’s Creed: Black Flag also saw the same treatment as it was released on the PS3 and Xbox 360, and then onto the PS4 and Xbox One.
However, in addition to three games, there will also be another two titles releasing in the same year. No further information on the two projects has been shared at the moment.
What are the other two projects?
It could be that the next Assassin’s Creed is one of those two, especially since the game has been hinted at for a while now.
Splinter Cell fans are hoping that the other title is an entry into the series but that seems unlikely considering Ubisoft’s CEO Yves Guillemot’s recent comment that he made when interviewed by IGN.
When you create a game, you have to make sure you will come with something that will be different enough from what you did before. We had lots of pressure from all the fans saying, ‘Don’t change it; don’t do this; don’t do that.’ So some of the teams were more anxious to work on the brand.Yves Guillemot
It makes sense that a ‘Splinter Cell’ sequel could be daunting, especially since those games have acquired a large fan-base.
How will these games benefit from the new technology?
On the topic of the five titles coming to the PS5 and Xbox Scarlett, 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. Players will experience better framerate, so there are lots of very good elements that will come with those new machines”
While none of these games have a set release date, it’s more than likely that they’ll launch mid to late 2020.
