Earlier this summer, Ubisoft confirmed its upcoming action-adventure game Gods & Monsters will have a different name by the time it hits shelves. Thanks to the Taiwan Digital Game Rating Committee, we know that Gods & Monsters will probably be called Immortals: Fenyx Rising.
Gematsu noted the rating and the name change, and reported on it earlier today. It's likely Ubisoft will make the change official at its next Ubisoft Forward digital event, which is coming in September.
We first learned the game's working title, Gods & Monsters, wasn't going to stick around when a Google Stadia leak in July revealed Gods & Monsters is being developed under the code name Orpheus. Ubisoft came forward to acknowledge neither name was destined to stick. "Our vision for the game formerly known as Gods & Monsters has evolved in surprising ways, which is common when developing exciting new worlds," executive producer Marc-Alexis Cote told Kotaku.
Fenyx Rising was revealed at E3 2019. It's a new game from the Assassin's Creed Odyssey team, who seemingly wanted to wallow in the land of Greek gods and monsters for a little while longer. The art style for Fenyx Rising is much more cartoony than Odyssey, and therefore its content might be more appropriate for younger players. What I mean is, I don't think anyone's going to stick a Cyclops's eye up the butt of a wandering goat. By all means, Ubisoft, prove me wrong.
Fenyx Rising was originally supposed to come out in February 2020, but it was met with delays. It's currently still scheduled to come out during Ubisoft's current fiscal year, which ends in April 2021. If Ubisoft does indeed confirm the title for Immortals: Fenyx Rising at its September Ubisoft Forward presentation, there's a chance we'll learn the game's new release date, too.
