'Far Cry 5,' 'The Crew 2,' New 'Assassin's Creed' Game Confirmed By Ubisoft
After a few weeks of speculations, reports have finally confirmed that Ubisoft is prepared to release several top-shelf games this financial year. According to the developer's most recent earnings call with its investors, it was verified that "Far Cry 5", "The Crew 2", "South Park: The Fractured But Whole," and a new "Assassin's Creed" game are slated to be released soon. Previously, rumors claimed the developer only had sequels for "Far Cry" and "The Crew" set for release soon.
Daniel Ahmad, an analyst at Niko Partners, reports that Ubisoft has indeed confirmed previous speculations that it has three more AAA titles scheduled to launch this year. These games were going to follow after the release of "Ghost Recon: Wildlands" and "For Honor." Game Rant explains that since "South Park: A Fractured But Whole" is not necessarily considered as an AAA title by Ubisoft, that leaves "Far Cy 5", "The Crew 2", and the new "Assassin's Creed" game as the contenders.

Gamers suspect that Ubisoft will officially announce "Far Cry 5", the new "Assassin's Creed" game, and "The Crew 2" during its E3 2017 press conference. Rumors have circulated that gamers are experiencing a series fatigue with the "Assassin's Creed" franchise. Some Sources even shared speculations that the developer will not publish a new game from the series anytime soon.
However, it seems that the French video game publisher debunked those rumors with its social media post hinting a new entry for the series, as reported by Polygon. Ubisoft actually surprised fans of the "Far Cry" franchise when it shared an image on its official Facebook page. Fans immediately started to wonder if the next game would be a prequel or sequel to "Far Cry 3." However, as of now, there are no clues as to what "Far Cry 5" will have to offer. "The Crew 2" was confirmed after a community manager for the game confirmed the name and shared a logo in the official forums. Meanwhile, several rumors have claimed that the next "Assassin's Creed" game will be set in Egypt.
Even though there are reports of a hostile takeover from Vivendi, it looks like Ubisoft is strongly on track to deliver new entries like "The Crew 2", an "Assassin's Creed" game, and "Far Cry 5." The successful launches of its other games this year further confirms its commitment to delivering great games to the fans.
