This year is set to be a great year for Ubisoft games as we’ve got 8 solid games releasing in 2021 – as long as they don’t get delayed. Many of these titles are set to put a spin on previous fan-favorite Ubisoft games like Scott Pilgrim Vs The World: The Game, Far Cry, and even Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege! However, we also have a couple of brand new titles that have no relation to other Ubisoft titles, although Skull & Bones seems pretty close to Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag. So which Ubisoft games are you most looking forward to playing this year? How many of these titles do you think will see their current release date? How many do you think will unfortunately fall victim to even more delays that may even push their release date into 2022?
