Yesterday was a bad day for Ubisoft, as they announced the delay to Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora and a “smaller unannounced” game. Unfortunately the publishing company also confirmed it’s had to cancel four titles as well.
These include the Splinter Cell VR game and Ghost Recon: Frontline, along with two more unannounced titles that Ubisoft did not name.
Although Splinter Cell VR is no longer in the works, fans can still expect a remake of the original game. Ghost Recon: Frontline was meant to be a free-to-play battle royale–which the market is completely flooded with.
Ubisoft did not state the reason for these cancellations, but game development is notorious for game cancellations, especially for games we never hear about. It’s slightly surprising to see a game that had an alpha and a reveal trailer get cancelled, but that’s just the business.
Although Ubisoft has dropped these four games and delayed two more, the company still has a number of big projects on the way, including Mario + Rabbids: Sparks of Hope and Skull and Bones–both of which will be releasing this year.
