Scott Pilgrim Announcement Teased For Later Today By Edgar Wright
Edgar Wright adds fuel to the Scott Pilgrim vs. the World: The Game ahead of today's Ubisoft Forward.
The Scott Pilgrim vs. the World: The Game rumour mill has been spinning wildly over the last few months. The movie’s director Edgar Wright has admitted he’s working on bringing the game back, the game’s composer Anamanaguchi randomly posted a cropped image of the box art and Bryan Lee O’Malley, the creator of Scott Pilgrim, admitted himself that Ubisoft, developers of the game, had in fact reached out to him.
Now, ahead of today’s Ubisoft Forward, Edgar Wright has added more fuel to the fire. Over on Twitter, Wright, who also worked on movies such as Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz tweeted:
“Ahem… Scott Pilgrim fans might want to keep their eyes peeled on @bryanleeomalley’s feed later. I shall say no more!”

While there’s no confirmation this is about the Scott Pilgrim game, the fact that we’re being prompted to keep an eye on O’Malley’s feed on the day of a Ubisoft Forward event definitely raises some questions. Couple that with all the recent rumours and efforts to bring the game back, it feels like fans of the game have a lot to get excited about.
It’s now been over 10 years since the original game released and six since it was unceremoniously pulled from storefronts. The beat ’em up was a well-loved game and the inability to purchase it since December 2014 has left fans rabid for a comeback.
Scott Pilgrim isn’t the only dormant Ubisoft franchise we may see tonight. Alongside the Scott Pilgrim rumours, reports of a Prince of Persia remake have been gaining traction. Over the last few months, a Prince of Persia Twitter account registered with what looks like a Ubisoft email address and a listing on a Guatemalan website have popped up.
While it’s now looking likely that we’re going to see Scott Pilgrim vs. the World: The Game, and potentially Prince of Persia, at the Ubisoft Forward event, one game that won’t be there is Skull & Bones. The development team released a statement saying that although the game is now progressing well, it won’t be featured today.
