Here's Why The New Tom Clancy Game Looks Like Call of Duty
It's not a coincidence Ubisoft's FPS game looks like Call of Duty.
Yesterday, Ubisoft made the surprise announcement that a new Tom Clancy game will be getting revealed today.
The surprise reveal states that the game will be revealed today at 11.15 AM PT, with additional coverage coming from gaming media outlets and content creators.
Short teasers of gameplay from the game were posted by a variety of different accounts to hype us up for the reveal, but many people online could not stop themselves comparing the gameplay similar to that of Call of Duty.
Well, there’s a reason for that.
Ubisoft’s New FPS Director and his Call of Duty Links
The new FPS title by Ubisoft is directed by Mark Rubin, who was previously the executive producer at Infinity Ward.
Rubin is mostly known in the Call of Duty community for his time as executive producer during the development and release of Call of Duty: Ghosts, where he would commonly appear in the game’s trailers and promotional events.
Rubin recently confirmed on Twitter that the new FPS title by Ubisoft will be his first big game since working on the Call of Duty franchise, and just by looking at the gameplay snippets, you can see where he took a lot of inspiration.
What is Ubisoft’s new FPS?
It’s unclear what exactly the new title is, but rumours are already beginning to circulate that the title could be free to play.
The title looks to be heavily inspired by Call of Duty and Ubisoft seems to think so too, as they’ve already approached several large Call of Duty creators to help promote the new game.
PrestigeIsKey, who has been a large content creator in the Call of Duty community for over a decade, recently took to Twitter to say he’ll have more details on the game later today.
New snippets of gameplay released by Ubisoft so far seem to show an objective-based game mode, rather than a Battle Royale. This doesn’t necessarily prove that a BR won’t be coming to the game, but it’s nice to see the focus right now is on more of a traditional FPS-type mode.
Although this does not confirm nor deny the new title will have a Battle Royale, it is refreshing to see a new FPS title being pushed without the Battle Royale narrative.
