An Assassin's Creed cosplayer at Ubisoft E3 2015
Ubisoft has just announced the lineup it will take to its stall at the next E3 convention and four major titles are expected to platform on the big stage.
Most game developers announced their pre-show lineups and press conferences quite some time ago, and Ubisoft is certainly late to the game, no pun intended; however, the teasers that have been released on Twitter, there are four games in particular that bring major revenue and will all be debuting together.
All of these major titles are expected to be released by the end of this fiscal year, which means by the end of March 2018 in the gaming industry.
Assassin's Creed is a wildly popular series with lots of titles under its belt already, and it is one of the games that defines Ubisoft in the eyes of many gamers.The latest installment of the series is highly anticipated for a release in time for Christmas.
Assassin's Creed has excited many fans that may have gravitated away from the series over time simply because leaks suggest that the new title explores lore in greater depth, expounding on origins and set in Ancient Egypt, the horn of the cradle of humanity.
Far Cry 5 is also set for release and a sharp debut at E3, but rumors are circulating, according to GameCentral, that it dons the wild west vibe and is set in Montana.Whether or not its setting is present day is unknown, but this is something of a departure from the Far Cry norm.
The Crew 2 has taken fans by surprise as the original was hardly expected to yield a sequel; nevertheless, the sales of the first undoubtedly merit it.The first was released in time for Christmas, but like Far Cry, there are currently no solid indicators that the same will occur for this installment.
South Park: The Fractured But Whole is so highly anticipated that fans may actually be getting sick of it at this point.After multiple changes to its release date, the next one is hopefully the real one.
The only concern for most fans with such highly anticipated titles is Ubisoft's reputation for duplicitous advertising.Many gamers don't trust Ubisoft trailers anymore; however, note that Ubisoft tends to deliver the promises of early games with their sequels much like Watch Dogs 2 and every other game mentioned herein.
