Ubisoft cancels production of several titles

If Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora has been delayed, Ubisoft has also delivered some more bad news. Some games will never see the light of day.

While one of Ubisoft’s major releases scheduled for this fiscal year (which will end in March 2023) has just delivered some very bad news, players are likely to be displeased with yet another piece of bad news, especially if they were expecting a victim. . games.

Spliter Cell VR, Ghost Recon… no longer in the game

Ubisoft, which has just summed up the results of the first quarter of the current fiscal year (22-23), also talked about their projects. As such, the company has informed us of the postponement of Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora and another “smaller unannounced premium game”, as well as the cancellation of four of its games. And if two of those canceled productions aren’t known because Ubisoft didn’t announce it, then that doesn’t apply to the other half.

When it was announced, VR players were probably excited to get closer to an episode of Splinter Cell VR. No luck, this is no longer a reality. Ubisoft has stopped production of the game, which until now has been very discreet. And the same goes for the free-to-play battle royale that was heavily criticized when it was unveiled (under 10,000 likes vs. 30,000 dislikes for the video announcement): Ghost Recon Frontline.

This choice was motivated by a reason: Ubisoft, as we can read, for example, on Kotaku, decided to close projects that it did not consider paramount in order to reallocate the resources allocated to them to higher priorities.

Now that everything is clear on that side, we can’t wait to see what Ubisoft has in store for us, and in particular during the next event scheduled for September, where Assassin’s Creed is expected. Will we see Beyond Good & Evil that still seems to be alive? We will wait.
