Over the coming weeks, Ubisoft plans to release other big budget games such as Watch Dogs: Legion, Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla and Immortals: Fenyx Rising. In early 2021, both Riders Republic and Prince Of Persia: The Sands Of Time Remake are also scheduled to launch.
Big changes are also planned for the company’s service platforms, which will be consolidated into one single platform called Ubisoft Connect. Users will be able to access a variety of unique features, as well as the ability to use game save data across any platform for specific games.
