The next year looks like it could be one of the biggest ones for Ubisoft yet. While it has kicked off with a big start this year with "For Honor" and "Ghost Recon: Wildlands," the game developer is showing no signs of slowing down anytime soon. In 2018, fans will get to see new entries from the "Assassin's Creed" and "Far Cry" franchises. It is also reportedly looking at a sequel to the open world racing game "The Crew."

New Games Announced

In 2017 to 2018, everyone will see "Far Cry," "Assassin's Creed," "The Crew" and "South Park" return. Of those four, only "South Park: The Fractured But Whole" had been announced before. Later on, the developer would confirm the development of "Far Cry 5" on its official Twitter account as well as "The Crew 2."

An installment was not released for "Assassin's Creed" in 2016, so Ubisoft will be taking it back with something big. This upcoming version, reportedly called "Assassin's Creed: Origins," will take players to ancient Egypt. It is said to feature naval navigating sequences such as those in "Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag."

IGN reports that the official Twitter account of "Assassin's Creed" debuted a new artwork that showed the logo of the franchise while announcing that the next chapter will debut at E3. In the game's UK account, the artwork was also shown with a text saying "A new era begins." This means that this installment will not revisit elements and settings that have been featured before.

Much More to Come

Ubisoft fans might already be raving about those games that are set to come out, but what is even more exciting is that there are also unannounced ones to be released. It is worth noting that the "Splinter Cell" series has not had a new installment since 2013. Meanwhile, "Rayman" fans have been waiting for a sequel to "Rayman Legends" for quite some time already. There have also been prior rumors about a sequel to "The Division" or a continuation of the classic shooter "Rainbow Six."

As for 2018 to 2019, Ubisoft also revealed its plans to debut another four major AAA releases. This is while pursuing its digital transformation goals and consolidating its new business model. The company claims that this is much more recurring and even more profitable, but there still has been no mention of what those 2018 to 2019 releases will be.
