As part of the latest Ubisoftfinancial report the publisher announced three major games it plans to release before the end of its fiscal year ending March 31, 2023. With these being the long-in-development Skull & Bones, the open-world Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora, and the Nintendo collaboration Mario + Rabbids: Sparks of Hope.
Which means at least one of these will probably be out this year. There's more games coming too, with Ubisoft hinting that a few major free-to-play titles are in the final stages of development.
2022-23 will see the first benefits from this strategy as we look to significantly grow our topline. The biggest driver of our topline growth will be our diverse line-up of premium games, including Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora, Mario + Rabbids: Sparks of Hope and Skull & Bones, as well as other exciting titles. Our growth will also benefit from our Free-to-Play releases, based notably on our biggest IPs. Some of these titles have been undergoing internal and external test phases and are in final stages of development.
On that front there's that The Division spin-off and the Tom Clancy-verse arena shooter (with a somewhat terrible name) XDefiant.
Of the games we do know that are coming, certainly Skull & Bones will be an interesting one to see in action as the last time it was shown in full was back at E3 2018. Where from there it was rebooted in 2020. Also Massive's Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora has been in development for a number of years too, and with the long-awaited Avatar 2 movie out this December a release to coincide with that makes a lot of sense.
