Predicting Ubisoft’s Major AAA Game Releases of 2019
Watch Dogs 3
Following the news that Ubisoft plans to release three to four major AAA games between April this year and March of the next (in other words, the 19/20 fiscal year), we decided to take some time spitballing what titles most likely fit the bill and could release within this timeframe.
Honestly, it should come as a no-brainer that Watch Dogs 3 would headline Ubisoft’s major titles for the following year period. With Assassin’s Creed Odyssey releasing in 2018’s peak months, it’s time for the historical action-RPG series to take a year out and let its modern-day, tech-focused counterpart take the spotlight, instead.
It’s a release schedule we’ve seen Ubisoft adopt before, enabling them to spend more time fine-tuning arguably their biggest blockbuster series, while also giving Watch Dogs fans more off-the-wall hacking goodness every other year.
Currently, no details are known as to where Watch Dogs 3’s story could go, what city we’ll end up exploring following Chicago and San Francisco from the past games, or what new features we can expect to shake up the formula.
Still, if we were the betting kind, we’d probably say Watch Dogs 3 will release this October/ November with an initial reveal either at E3 or just prior to it, with a full gameplay reveal taking center stage during the industry expo.
