Last week, Ubisoft announced the delay of its upcoming big productions (Watch Dogs: Legion, Gods & Monsters, Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Quarantine and two more unannounced titles). Due to weak sales of Tom Clancy's The Division 2 and Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Breakpoint and the reduction of annual financial targets, they were carried over to the next fiscal year (from April 2020 to the end of March 2021). At that time, we didn't know whether these productions would be released on the current console generation, or on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Scarlett.
However, according to Game Informer, during yesterday's teleconference the CEO of Ubisoft - Yves Guillemot - revealed that the planned titles will appear on devices of both generations (including those not yet announced).
"The five titles, yes, they will be on this generation and the next generation, and they will take full advantage all the new features that are coming with the machines, which are actually going to be extremely interesting for players."
Both consoles, both from Sony and Microsoft, are to appear on store shelves during the winter holiday period in 2020. It is quite possible that one of the delayed Ubisoft productions will be released in a similar time and at will become a launch title for PlayStation 5 or Xbox Scarlett. However, we will still have to wait for specific information. First, the French company has to account for the poor year in order to be able to serve the players a solid production next year.
