Far Cry 5, The Crew 2, and New Assassin's Creed Release This Fiscal Year
In a press release provided yesterday, Ubisoft announced that new entries in the Far Cry, The Crew, and the Assassin’s Creed series would be released within the company’s next fiscal year, which ends March 31, 2018.
Far Cry 5, the newest entry in Ubisoft’s open-world FPS franchise, was revealed just before the company’s earnings call, where it was confirmed to be in development and release within the fiscal year window. And although there isn’t much known about the game, its setting, or its time period, Ubisoft did confirm that we will know more about the first-person shooter “very soon.”
The company also announced that The Crew 2, a sequel to the open-world racing game that released in 2014. Again, the game is set to release some time within the next year, and no further details for the game have been announced. However, the official forum for The Crew 2 features a logo of The Crew 2 alongside the tagline, “beyond the road.”
Finally, the Assassin’s Creed official Twitter account has released a new piece of art that features the franchise’s logo. The account also indicated that information on the next chapter in the AC franchise will come at this year’s E3, which will be held in Los Angeles, June 13-15.

On top of that, the UK Assassin’s Creed Twitter account also released the new art alongside the tagline, “a new era begins.” Although this may lend credence to the rumors that the next installment of the Assassin’s Creed franchise will be set in Egypt, there has still been no firm confirmation by Ubisoft that this will be the case.
It’s expected that we will receive more information on these games and more in just a few weeks at the Ubisoft E3 presentation.
