Ubisoft cancels four games, including Splinter Cell VR and Ghost Recon Frontline
On the same day that Ubisoft delayed Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora and a “smaller” premium game, the publisher also confirmed that it had canceled four games.
These include the Splinter Cell VR title and Ghost Recon: Frontline, as well as two unannounced titles that Ubisoft did not disclose.
While the Splinter Cell VR game has been canned, fans of the series are getting a remake of the original game. As for Ghost Recon: Frontline, it was a free-to-play Battle Royale game. As for the other two unannounced games that have now been cancelled, anyone can guess what they might be.
Ubisoft has given no reason for the cancellation of these four titles. Game development is a highly iterative process and games get canceled all the time, even if we never hear about it. For example, Blizzard cancels about 50% of the games it starts development on.
While Ubisoft has canceled four games and delayed two more, the company has a number of big projects coming up, including Mario + Rabbids: Sparks of Hope and Skull and Bones, both releasing this year. In September, Ubisoft will reveal “the future of Assassin’s Creed”, and many believe this relates to the new Assassin’s Creed game with Valhalla’s Basim.
