There have been quite a few whispers this week about Ubisoft being up for acquisition, though neither Sony nor Microsoft has expressed full interest just yet. However, it appears that the company is gearing up for the move, as it’s reportedly fallen behind on development of some of its major games.
A report from Kotaku indicates that while there are sequels planned for Assassin’s Creed, Far Cry and Ghost Recon, they appear to be much further out than projected. This is mainly due to key departures from the company over the past couple of years, as well as other issues – which may explain why the company might be available for purchase.
This comes on the heels of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla getting its latest expansion, along with Far Cry 6 finishing up its ambitious DLC and Ghost Recon Breakpoint reaching the end of the road on its development. The teams are hard at work, but it’ll probably be a while before we see the fruits of their labor.
The company has also been busy launching development on a new Splinter Cell, as well as a sequel to Immortals Fenyx Rising, which has been a big hit for fans. And don’t forget Beyond Good and Evil 2 is still cycling about somewhere, along with the long-awaited multiplayer pirate opus Skull & Bones.
Ubisoft reportedly has a big presentation coming up in June, where it’ll show what’s coming in the next year ahead. It’ll be interesting to see what’s on their plate.
