Amid all the ups and downs in the gaming industry lately is Ubisoft. It hasn’t had a big release in months, cancelled multiple projects and incurred severe losses. However, there is some hope, as it has Assassin’s Creed Mirage, Skull and Bones, The Crew Motorfest, XDefiant, Avatar Frontiers of Pandora, and a “large” unannounced game releasing before April 2024.
Sources familiar with Ubisoft’s plans spoke to Kotaku’s Ethan Gach and said this game is Ubisoft Massive’s unnamed Star Wars title. Internally known as Project Helix and led by creative director Julian Gerighty of The Division series fame, it reportedly has space travel between planets. Unfortunately, two sources said the project hasn’t been making good progress.
There are reportedly high hopes, with some hoping it could be the first blockbuster for Ubisoft outside Assassin’s Creed. However, releasing it this fiscal year may prove too ambitious, and it could slip into the fiscal year 2025, which starts on April 1st, 2024, and ends on March 31st, 2025. It certainly wouldn’t be the first time a 2025 release date was rumored.
In response, a Ubisoft spokesperson simply said, “We don’t comment on rumors or speculation.” With Ubisoft Forward on June 12th, perhaps we’ll find out if it’s coming this fiscal year and learn the official name. Stay tuned in the meantime.
