Ubisoft is a true video game giant and owns some of the most successful franchises around, but not all Ubisoft projects actually see the light of day.
Some of these projects could even be a couple of fairly large game series that have been on hold at Ubisoft for years. The reason why we are actually talking about this is a few tweets from Ubisoft developer Louis de Carufel. He reports of a game he has been working on for three years that has been discontinued by Ubisoft.
The tweets have now been deleted, here is a screenshot with the most important information:
Over 200 people worked on the unknown game, all of which have now been distributed to 15 other Ubisoft projects. Such a number of people probably did not experiment with new ideas, but worked on a full game. Some of these 15 projects are likely to be Watch Dogs: Legion and the new Assassin’s Creed part, but apparently Ubisoft has a lot more iron in the fire.
Unfortunately there is no information about the canceled game. When considering which larger rows could get another game but have not heard anything for years, we quickly end up at Splinter Cell or Prince of Persia. There have been rumors about a new Splinter Cell and Prince of Persia has not had anything on the home consoles or PC since 2010.
Perhaps one of the games is also behind one of the 15 projects mentioned. At least we will find out in the future.
What would you think of a sequel to Splinter Cell or Prince of Persia?
