Jason Schreier from Kotaku is known, among other things, for occassionally revealing various industry-related information from behind the scenes. In the latest podcast from the Kotaku Splitscreen series he said that Ubisoft will announce at this year's E3 fair two brand new IPs: an action adventure game called Orpheus, and a co-op shooter that uses Anvil, the technology powering Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege.
As far as the first of the aforementioned titles is concerned, apart from the code-named name Schreier revealed only that the main source of inspiration for its authors is the best-selling sandbox action game The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. The second position, however, is to be what the Pioneer project evolved into, initially planned as a peaceful game about exploration of space. As we reported in January, in the course of production, the title was transformed into a cooperative shooter.
At the Ubisoft conference, which will start at 10 June at 1pm (PDT) / 4pm (EDT), we will certainly hear about Watch Dogs Legion and Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Breakpoint. Besides, we already know that the French publisher will bring neither Beyond Good & Evil 2 nor Skull & Bones to Los Angeles. It is also worth noting that on the occasion of the upcoming "Gamers' Holiday" the company launched a sale, in which selected items from its portfolio were overpriced by up to 90%.
