Things have been a bit rocky for the French video games giant lately as its shares continue to decline, but the company CEO Yves Guillemot believes a new high-value licensing partnership on mobile based on one of Ubisoft’s AAA games will change the company’s future for the better.

To be more specific, in Ubisoft’s latest financial report, the CEO said something quite interesting and yet a bit vague. The experienced video game maker said, “The new high-value mobile partnership for one of our brands reflects the powerful appeal of our brands for the fast-growing AAA mobile segment.” Given the circumstances, it’s nearly impossible for this game to be about anything besides the most popular Ubisoft brand, Assassin’s Creed.

While the French gaming firm is one of the top video game companies in the world, they have an easily trackable portfolio, at least compared to most other major studios/publishers. Ubisoft already announced The Division Resurgence, the mobile version of its highly popular looter shooter and another major Ubisoft hit, Rainbow Six is also getting a mobile game, hence it’s unlikely that either of these series can be the AAA brand Guillemot is talking about.

This new mysterious and high-value project can either be Far Cry or more likely Assassin’s Creed; the latter is the heavy hitter for the French industry giant. The Assassin’s Creed brand has seen a few mobile game adaptations before, the latest one being Assassin’s Creed: Rebellion, developed by Behaviour Interactive and released across iOS and Android. However, a new Assassin’s Creed mobile game under a different genre is quite possible.

Ubisoft is expected to announce the new game come Fall 2022, alongside other major projects and trailers. There have been rumors about Ubisoft may be acquired in the near future, but the shareholders believe the company will recover and they’re not interested in selling below €60 per share.
