Ubisoft Paris‘ International Product Manager, Aymeric Evennou, Tweeted today that the company will reveal a new game this week.
Evennou’s exact Tweet reads, “New project announced *very* soon. Finally !”. A follower then asked when the announcement would come, to which he replied “this week”.
There is absolutely nothing else official to go on, which means we can only speculate what the “new project” could be.
Ubisoft Paris is the studio behind both Ghost Recon: Future Soldier and Just Dance 4, so it’s entirely possible that this new game has something to do with one of those IPs. It’s also reasonable to assume that the “project” is not a new game at all, but simply some sort of DLC tied to one of those franchises.
Much less reasonable to assume, but certainly more desirable, is that Ubisoft will officially announce Beyond Good & Evil 2. Sadly, the chances of this announcement being the reveal of Jade’s long-awaited return are pretty slim, because that news would most likely come out of their Montpellier studio.
Whatever the company is cooking up, we will keep an eye on it and let you know as soon as it’s announced.
