The final we heard about launch dates for Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora, Skull & Bones, and Mario + Rabbids: Sparks of Hope, Ubisoft was planning to launch all three by the top of March 2023 — the deadline for fiscal yr 2022. That window nonetheless has the identical finish date, however it’s now been narrowed from the opposite route. We gained’t see any of these three video games till October 1 of this yr.
The March 2023 finish date remains to be locked in, as per Ubisoft’s fiscal yr 2021 earnings report, which was simply printed. In the accompanying earnings name (through VGC), chief company finance officer Frédérick Duguet added that the trio of video games would launch within the second half of the present fiscal yr. That provides us October 1, 2022 as the beginning date for the brand new launch window. December would particularly be a very good month for Frontiers of Pandora to reach, as James Cameron’s Avatar: The Way of Water will come to theaters that month, on December 16.
We’ve barely heard a peep about that game thus far, however we’ve seen some quantity of Mario + Rabbids: Sparks of Hope. The Kingdom Battle sequel bought a gameplay demo final summer time, which launched Rosalina and her Rabbid counterpart. The follow-up appears to be taking cues from Super Mario Galaxy in that respect. As for Skull & Bones, the pirate ship game has been the topic of quite a few insider experiences. Leaked gameplay from only a month in the past confirmed exploration, customization, and fight on the excessive seas.
Notably, all three titles on this story are mentioned to be a part of a “massive showcase” that Ubisoft is planning. As the summer time months draw close to in lots of elements of the world, there’s a very good probability that the corporate is gearing up for an additional Ubisoft Forward occasion. That can be a super place to announce actual launch dates for the three video games in query.
