Of these games, the company has also promised that Far Cry 6 and Rainbow Six Quarentine will arrive by September this year. It is worth mentioning that Skull and Bones, a pirate game, has been postponed and that is why it is not on the list. Now, according to the new plans released, it may be that the game will only be released in 2023.
Ubisoft will focus more on free to play
The company also explains how it plans to shift its focus from AAA games to free titles to play in the coming years. According to Ubisoft’s chief financial officer, Frederick Duguet, the studio no longer believes that the release of three or four triple-A games per year has a direct relationship to value creation.
Even with the change in strategy, Duguet ensures that his future free-to-play games arrive as an addition to existing franchises. The financial director comments that this strategy will focus on high quality games for all platforms and highlights that this should still take a long time to be done in an assertive manner.
