Ubisoft's output has slowed over the past year, mostly due to a number of delays for major games. The publisher is now planning to push ahead into a new fiscal year with five games, all due out before the next.
In its earnings report today, Ubisoft confirmed that Assassin's Creed Valhalla, Watch Dogs Legion, Rainbow Six Quarantine, and Gods & Monsters are all part of the publishers' lineup for this fiscal year, which runs April 1, 2020 through March 31, 2021. One more unannounced triple-A title, from one of Ubisoft's "biggest franchises," is also expected.
The latter three games were all delayed out past March 2020 last year. At the time, Ubisoft hoped this would lead to a strong lineup for the coming year. That timing also happens to coincide with the launch of the next generation of console hardware, a window that Ubisoft is already planning around.
What the last game could be is anyone's guess, though one can likely be ruled out. In an earnings call earlier this year, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot confirmed that Beyond Good & Evil 2 is not among the games it's planning for this fiscal year, meaning the anticipated sequel is still a ways off.
Despite the major delays last year, the coming year is looking strong for Ubisoft. These five games, alongside some other lower-key titles like Roller Champions, look to set the foundation for Ubisoft's next-gen presence. We're likely to learn more on July 12, when Ubisoft broadcasts its E3-style digital showcase called Ubisoft Forward.
