At E3 2014, we caught a glimpse of Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege and another glimpse of Tom Clancy’s The Division, and, like many games before it, expected these titles to be delayed well into 2016 and beyond.
Fortunately, according to Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot, these games are still on track for 2015, though additional details were not given.
Guillemot spoke on a financial conference call today, confirming that the two new Tom Clancy titles as well as a new Assassin’s Creed would be launching this year.
He said that the strong install based of Xbox One and PlayStation 4 “should offer a nice tail-wind, and we expect software growth to come back.” He added that he expects to continue growth “with the introduction of The Division.”
Guillemot did not mention either of Nintendo’s consoles on the call.
When we saw Rainbow Six Siege at E3 last year, it was in much better shape than anyone expected for a game that has gone off-the-radar for three years. It is also one of our most anticipated titles of 2015.
Expect to hear much more about every 2015 Ubisoft game (as well as some 2016 ones, we’d imagine) at E3 2015 and beyond.
