Dubious Ubisoft roadmap lists Far Cry 6 and Skull & Bones as coming soon with Avatar scheduled for 2022 but still no sign of Splinter Cell sequel

A rumored Ubisoft roadmap has appeared on social media apparently revealing some game release dates, schedules, and IP details. It seems both Far Cry 6 and Skull & Bones could be arriving sooner than expected, while Avatar joins a new Assassin’s Creed game in 2022. The most believable aspect is that Splinter Cell is still being swept under the carpet.

An apparent sketchy roadmap of Ubisoft’s plans for the next couple of years has been posted onto Reddit by a supposed “intern” working at the software company. While the Reddit post has now been taken down, Twitter user Idle Sloth managed to save and share the relevant information. So with a big pinch of salt to hand, this is allegedly what Ubisoft is preparing:

2021

  • Far Cry 6: CGI and gameplay video for E3 (June 12-15) and release on June 25
  • Riders Republic: Sports game to be released on July 16
  • Skull & Bones: Much-anticipated pirate game scheduled for fall/autumn 2021
  • Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Quarantine: Gameplay footage already leaked; expect on December 10
  • Prince of Persia remake: Vague mention of December 31 date

2022

  • New Assassin’s Creed title
  • The Crew 3
  • Avatar game
  • Beyond Good & Evil 2
  • New IP (involving antagonists called The Crull)

Pre-production plans

It’s a contentious list that has already sparked some debate on its legitimacy, especially considering how unlikely it is that an intern would have access to such information. However, it does include the telling words “nothing planned” in regard to the future of the Splinter Cell series, which is still waiting for a sequel to 2013’s well-regarded Blacklist.

Far Cry 6 has already been delayed but is expected to appear at least before the end of September, according to a recent Ubisoft earnings call. Skull & Bones was expected to see a release in the second half of 2018, and while many thought the game was trapped in development hell an update from Ubisoft in September 2020 revealed production of the action-adventure title was in “full swing with a new vision.”
