Ubisoft recently closed an unannounced project that a development team has worked on for more than three years. The makers have not yet announced a reason for the end. So far, details about the game are also missing. The employees concerned are now assigned to other projects.
A Ubisoft employee announced on Twitter a few days ago that the company had surprisingly abandoned a previously unannounced project after a development period of over three years. The employee was Louis de Carufel, who has previously worked on Watch Dogs and Watch Dogs 2 with this development team. No details of the game itself were revealed, but it appears to have been a major project at Ubisoft that had over 200 employees working on in the past three years.
The release of the title by Ubisoft Montreal was still planned for the current generation. It is also not yet known why those responsible chose the hiring. However, there is good news for all developers who were involved in the project. None of the employees will lose their job at Ubisoft and will be assigned to a different team in the coming days. According to Louis de Carufel, employees were even allowed to set preferences as to which project they would like to work on in the future. A total of 15 games are currently in development at Ubisoft. Not all names of these games are known yet.
The development studio is currently busy with the completion of Watch Dogs Legion, Gods & Monsters and Rainbow Six Quarantine, which were only postponed to the second half of next year in October. Other projects such as Beyond Good & Evil 2, Skull & Bones or Roller Champions have also been in development at Ubisoft for a long time.
