what game was truly alright? Immortals Fenyx Rising. Ubisoft’s Breath of the Wild-like did not dissipate the charts—we scored it a good however not astounding 72% in our Immortals evaluate—but it surely was a strong game with some humorous moments and memorable characters. Characters who should stay in our reminiscence endlessly, I assume, as a result of a brand new report from VGC says Ubisoft has quietly cancelled a sequel.
In response to nameless dev sources spoken to by each VGC and Kotaku, Ubisoft has killed off a sequel to Immortals Fenyx Rising at an early stage of growth, apparently as a result of firm brass felt that the primary game had struggled to ascertain itself as an IP, which I believe is MBA-speak for ‘individuals stopped speaking about this game a couple of week after it got here out’.
Ubisoft hasn’t precisely confirmed the unique report, but it surely did present a press release to VGC saying that it is “reallocating some inventive groups and sources throughout the Quebec studio to different unannounced initiatives” and that their tech and experience would “function an accelerator for the event of those key initiatives targeted on our largest manufacturers”.
That does not bode properly for Immortals’ future. I do not suppose there’s any world during which you can plausibly name the game considered one of Ubisoft’s “largest manufacturers,” and it is smart that the corporate would need all fingers on deck for surer bets for extra well-known properties. It does, in spite of everything, have a thousand totally different Murderer’s Creed initiatives going, and, hey, do not forget that Splinter Cell remake? I assume that does not depend as unannounced; I am simply actually eager to violate different international locations’ sovereignty with Michael Ironside once more.
So, alas, in the event you had been hoping for extra BotW-likes on PC, it is wanting very doubtless you will should scratch an Immortals sequel off your checklist of potential candidates. We’ll at all times have the unique (plus, uh, the precise BotW and even Tears of the Kingdom if you wish to get emulated about it), but it surely’ll be a disgrace if Ubisoft has actually ditched off one thing imperfect however new in favour of its “largest manufacturers”.
