Game News Mario + The Rabbids 2, Avatar, Skull & Bones… Good news for Ubisoft projects!
After Activision, Sony and Electronic Arts, it’s Ubisoft’s turn to share its financial results, and in addition to some interesting figures, the French publisher says more about its next games… Good news, Mario + The Rabbids: Sparks of Hope, Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora and Skull & Bones are on track.
Three AAA for the end of 2022, beginning of 2023!
Even if Ubisoft remains somewhat mysterious about Mario + Rabbids: Sparks of Hope and Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora, since their respective announcements, the French firm confessed in its last balance sheet that the two titles will indeed be released during this fiscal year (which began on April 1 and will end on March 31, 2023). We imagine then that Mario + The Rabbids: Sparks of Hope will be available on Nintendo Switch during November or December so as not to miss the end of year celebrations and that the release of Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora on PC, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S will match that of Avatar 2: The Way of the Water, which is expected in theaters on December 14.
Same observation for the Skull & Bones project which, however, had had a more than difficult development. Indeed, in the financial statement, Ubisoft also indicates that the pirate game will land on our favorite media before March 31, 2023.
For 2022-23, we are looking to return to significant sales growth. It will primarily be driven by a diverse lineup of premium games, including Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora, Mario + Rabbids: Sparks of Hope, and Skull & Bones, as well as other exciting titles. This growth will also benefit from our Free-to-Play releases, especially those based on our largest IPs. Extract from the financial statement
Regarding free-to-play experiences, we obviously think of XDefiant, an FPS which opposes the different factions of the Tom Clancy games (Splinter Cell, Ghost Recon, The Division…), or even Roller Champions which is normally expected for the late spring 2022.
And Prince of Persia in all this?
We’ve gone through the latest financial statement down to the smallest detail, and unfortunately we haven’t found any trace of the Prince of Persia license, which means that the remake of the game Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time released in 2003 will not see the light of day this year and we will still have to wait.
Normally expected for January 21, 2021, then for March of the same year, Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake has seen its release date postponed to an indefinite date. Since this announcement, the title has been hiding in the shadows… However, according to the latest news, the action-adventure game has changed hands. Formerly at Ubisoft Pune and Ubisoft Mumbai, Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake is now under the direction of Ubisoft Montreal, the developers behind the license reboot.
Development of Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake will now be led by Ubisoft Montreal, birthplace of the epic The Sands of Time trilogy. This decision is an important step and the team, building on the work done by Ubisoft Pune and Ubisoft Mumbai, will now take the necessary time to regroup on the scope of the game to give you the best experience for this remake. of an all-time classic when it’s ready. Statement of May 3
