Ubisoft Announces Gods & Monsters, Watch Dogs Legion, and Rainbow Six Quarantine For Next Gen Consoles
Players can expect to have a handful of new Ubisoft games to play once the next generation of consoles release late next year.
Earlier today, Ubisoft announced during their recurring financial report that Watch Dogs Legion, Rainbow Six Quarantine, and Gods & Monsters are being delayed to the latter half of next year. According to VGC, during a conference call that took place following the company’s announcement chief financial officer, Frédérick Duguet stated that the three games will be next-gen titles.
“Gods & Monsters, Rainbow Six Quarantine and Watch Dogs Legion will be released between Q2 and Q3 of next fiscal year [July-December 2020] and will be optimised for the next generation of consoles,” said Duguet.
While the news is welcoming I’m not particularly surprised that the titles are coming to next-gen hardware. Ubisoft is normally very open to engaging with new and updated tech, most recently with Google Stadia where they have already confirmed that several titles in their catalogue including Assassin’s Creed Odyssey and Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 will be making their way to the platform.
These will be three of the five AAA titles that the company stated will release during their next fiscal year. Currently, there are no new release dates for any of the titles, but regardless of that delays are never a bad thing. It is cool to know about more games that we can expect to play once the new generation of Xbox and PlayStation release near the end of next year.
With two additional AAA titles releasing in 2020 along with those delayed today it is looking like it’s going to be a good holiday season for Ubisoft when the time comes especially if Beyond Good and Evil 2 and the heavily rumored Assassin’s Creed Kingdom are a part of that group. With these delays in mind, I don’t expect a lot of new updates until we near E3 next year.
