If i heard correctly, the new AAA game will be announced before E3. They will also be announcing 'lots of release dates' at E3.

I'm really struggling to think of what kind of game it would be. They have most of the big genres covered with their other franchises other than MMOs and MOBAs, and I can't imagine it being either of those.

Copy bump.

That makes sense. The longer they wait, the higher the chances of a leak.

This is also a online service focused game a la The Division/Rainbow Six/For Honor/Ghost Recon IIRC.

Could it be Hero? The storyboards got leaked 2 years ago, if they continued with it it might be ready to have a reveal trailer at least.

Also guarantees I'm not interested I guess. The Division gets things right in terms of setting and combat. But it got old and pretty boring really fast.

I feel like I'm interested, in the vein that Ubisoft games always start off seemingly interesting, but I just lose enthusiasm by the time it comes out.

I have a feeling that this new AAA IP game from Ubisoft is going to be a hero shooter or MOBA style shooter like Battleborn or Overwatch. I am taking a wild guess here.
 
You sure? Wasn't Hero a super hero open world rpg?

Vikings, Samurai, and Knights:

*sigh*
It's BG&E 2 isn't it? I know they will do this, just because they hate me

Edit: Oh, new IP? Doged a bullet.....for now

Exciting! I thought they were done with new IP!

Watch_Dogs, The Division, For Honor. The first two being huge successes for them.

I get that it's cool to hate Ubisoft, but they're not Activision. They don't just release a yearly AC and Just Dance and call it a year
