Ubisoft Cancels Immortals Fenyx Rising Sequel to Prioritize Assassin’s Creed Red

Ubisoft Cancels Immortals Fenyx Rising Sequel to Prioritize Assassin’s Creed Red

Ubisoft is one of the largest video game publishers that has released various games over the years. The company was working on the sequel to Immortals Fenyx Rising, but some reports suggest that Ubisoft has abandoned the project, which was in the early stages of development. This is disappointing news for fans of the game, as the first installment was well-received and had a lot of potential for a sequel.

The reason for this cancellation was the challenges surrounding the establishment of the IP. Ubisoft had initially intended to turn Immortals Fenyx Rising into a franchise, with plans to explore additional myths through sequels.

However, the unfortunate cancellation of the project compelled the Quebec studio to reallocate its teams and resources to other exciting ventures. This decision was not well-received by Ubisoft, which was working on other projects.

Based on Stephen Totilo’s statement, it appears that Assassin’s Creed Red might have played a significant role in the decision to cancel the Immortals sequel. The potential implications suggest that the development and reception of Assassin’s Creed Red may have influenced Ubisoft’s strategic priorities, ultimately leading to the redirection of resources away from the Immortals project.

Why is it important: 

Assassin’s Creed Red is positioned as the company’s next premium flagship release, destined to assume a prominent role among the forthcoming lineup of action RPGs.

Ubisoft unveiled Assassin’s Creed Red last year, delighting fans with the prospect of finally experiencing the series in Japan. As of now, details about the game remain scant, and its release date is still some time off. In the meantime, we eagerly await further updates.
