Following the multiplayer shooter's recent delay, Ubisoft has confirmed that it's still due out this fiscal year.
There is currently no confirmed release window for Ubisoft's upcoming free-to-play competitive shooter XDefiant.
XDefiant is a free-to-play competitive shooter that will feature characters from Ubisoft's other action-oriented franchise.
Executive producer Mark Rubin says that depending on how the multiplayer shooter's submission process goes in the coming days, it could launch anywhere between mid-September and mid-October.
Executive producer confirms the multiplayer shooter is currently "in the process of getting approved by first parties."
Based on feedback for the recent Open Session, Ubisoft has announced that XDefiant won't be available on last-gen consoles at launch.
Servers and parties have faced issues, which Ubisoft continues to investigate. Currently, "brief" match disconnects are expected.
Executive producer Mark Rubin also confirmed that Year 1 of the launch would include four new factions and 12 new weapons and maps.
In addition to Assassin's Creed Mirage, Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora, The Crew Motorfest, Skull and Bones, and more.
"Something that’s really important is the fact that this isn’t just a one and done title," says Ubisoft's Patrick Price.
Here's what you can expect in the form of post-launch content support from XDefiant's future seasons.
Ubisoft has released a host of new trailers for its multiplayer shooter XDefiant, showing off various aspects of the game.
Closed beta starts on April 13th and includes four playable factions, four modes, 13 maps, an exclusive reward track and Ranked Mode.
Cancelled projects, delayed games, big-budget titles in limbo, losses and falling stock prices are only the tip of the iceberg.
While Casual matchmaking is ping-based, they'll be balanced after lobbies are made based on hidden MMR to ensure "a fair chance to win."
Ubisoft's upcoming free-to-play titles will also "benefit" the company and are in the "final stages of development" with tests currently ongoing.
The Wolves have also been renamed to the Phantoms and the Outcasts from The Division 2 have been temporarily removed, as per insider Tom Henderson.
Known insider Tom Henderson claims Ubisoft is planning announcements and updates for as many as 20 games, and many of these could possibly arrive in a single big event.
Invitations for a new set of tests have been sent to "select registrants" on PC who will go hands-on with features that are still in development.
The free-to-play mutiplayer shooter received plenty of backlash upon announcement for not fitting with the "Tom Clancy" branding.
