During Ubisoft’s financial conference call for analysts and investors, CFO Alain Martinez talked about a new IP scheduled to release in fiscal year 2018/2019.

The new IP was originally scheduled for the current fiscal year, but has been delayed to a release between April 1st, 2018 and March 31st, 2019 alongside three unannounced AAA games belonging to established franchises.

According to Martinez, the new IP will be “a multiplayer game with strong live operations.” More information on it will come at a later date.

Interestingly, CEO Yves Guillemot also mentioned that we’ll see a new Ghost Recon game earlier than a new Rainbow Six game.

He also added later in the call that the “connected machines,” which are PS4 and Xbox One, really gave Ubisoft an opportunity to create new service-type IPs.

Today Ubisoft also released its financial results for Fiscal Year 2016/2017, and you can read them here.  The publisher also confirmed that this year we’ll get a new Assassin’s Creed, Far Cry 5 and The Crew 2.
