The Crew 2, Assassin’s Creed, Far Cry 5 and South Park for 2017 Ubisoft Line Up

Rumors have been spun over several of publisher Ubisoft’s upcoming titles. It’s been a wild ride for fans of some of their biggest names, but we’re finally getting some solid information.

Far Cry 5: Finally!

A while back, a picture was uploaded on Ubisoft’s Facebook page, showing a picture of Rook Island, the setting for Far Cry 3. Many wondered if we were getting a remaster of the previous game. Others hoped for a new adventure entirely. Potentially in development right now is Far Cry 5, a title that has had a ton of speculation and even a few leaks. Fans of the series are thrilled by the potential.

More Assassin’s Is Always Better

Another title that’s seen its fair share of rumor outflow is Assassin’s Creed. The newest edition to the assassin family tree, allegedly titled Assassin’s Creed Origins, has also seen a little bit more light these days. But why not sooner? The last title Assassin’s Creed Syndicate was released in 2015, after all. Well, for 2016 Ubisoft figured a recess was in order. “We’re taking this year to evolve the game mechanics and to make sure we’re delivering on the promise of Assassin’s Creed offering unique and memorable gameplay experiences that make history everyone’s playground.”

According to the grape vine, the pre-order card print outs for both AC Origins and Far Cry have been ordered.

Coon And Friends Are On Their Way To Save The Day!

The lineup for fiscal year 2017 continues with the anticipated South Park: The Fractured But Whole. Fans of the small Colorado town troublemakers have had their hearts broken several times over multiple delays but Ubisoft has confirmed that it is back on schedule, dropping October 17th. Let us all hope for sooner so we can play superhero with Coon and Friends faster.

Get Back On The Crew

One more name for the lineup is The Crew 2, a sequel to its open-world racing predecessor from December 2014. How do we know this one is coming? A logo appeared in the Ubisoft forums, posted by a community manager. Coupled with it, management had this to say:

“Beyond the road….Stay with us for more high-octane thrills!”

Speed demons, get ready to rule the pavement once again.
