Ubisoft’s latest financial report brings some not-so-pleasant news for fans of the French publisher. For example, one of the company’s most anticipated games – Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora – which was originally expected to be released this year, will be significantly delayed. According to Ubisoft’s estimates, the game has now been pushed back to the 2023-2024 fiscal year and is scheduled for release between April 1, 2023 and March 31, 2024.
Another yet-to-be-announced “smaller premium title” is also benefiting from the same treatment, and its release has been pushed back to the company’s next fiscal year.
Although the Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora game has been delayed, the new film in the series – Avatar: The Way of Water – directed by James Cameron, will be released on time this December.
While the above games have only been postponed, Ubisoft has made the decision to completely cancel no less than four other titles. Among them are two games that have not been announced yet.
Unfortunately, among the canceled games is Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Frontline, the battle royale title that the Ubisoft studio in Bucharest has been working on. The list of cancelations is completed by Splinter Cell VR, the game announced for 2020, which the company now plans to abandon. It’s not about the recently revealed Splinter Cell remake, which is still in development.
Despite rumors that Ubisoft would cancel and withdraw the recently released free-to-play game Roller Champions, the publisher has assured that this title will still be available and functional.
