In an earnings call this week, Ubisoft has finally announced its first games for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Scarlett. Recently, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot interacted with the news channels and in one of the statements confirmed that the company will launch five games in Fiscal Year 2021. These games will be released on both current-generation Xbox and the next-generation console codenamed as Project Scarlet.
Guillemot, during the interaction with the media also shared the names of the games that the company is currently working upon. The CEO said the five games will include Watch Dogs: Legion, Rainbow Six Quarantine, and Gods & Monsters. There are two other titles that Ubisoft will release for the new console but as of now, the CEO did not share anything regarding those games. The 2021 fiscal year of Ubisoft will run from 1 April 2020 to 31 March 2021 and both Micorosft and Sony are scheduled to release Scarlet and PS5 in Holiday 2020.
“The five titles will be on the consoles of this generation and next-generation, taking full advantage of all the new features that come with the machines,” Guillemot said, as reported by IGN. “This will be extremely interesting for players, as they will be able to download new content much more quickly. Players will also experience better framerate, so there are lots of very good elements that will come with those new machines.”
We may see even more cross-generation games from Ubisoft and other publishers with the PS5 and Scarlett coming in Holiday 2020. Cross-gen titles included Watch Dogs and Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag from Ubisoft, as well as high-profile shooters Battlefield 4 and Call of Duty: Ghosts during the last major transition from PS3 to PS4 and Xbox 360 to Xbox One.
