Ubisoft Announces Far Cry 5 and The Crew 2, Teases Assassin's Creed Reveal

//cdn.themis-media.com/media/global/images/library/deriv/1406/1406189.jpgUbisoft just announced two new games and teased a third, but there's very little info for any of them.

Ubisoft is rolling out two game announcements and tease today, but it's not sharing much info beyond a few logos. The company took to its official forums today to announce two sequels, one of which was expected, and the other, maybe not so much.

First, the official forums [http://forums.ubi.com/forumdisplay.php/1579-Far-Cry-5] are now up for Far Cry 5. There's literally no further info beyond a brief question accompanying the new logo (seen below), which asks, "Are you ready for a hefty dose of new Far Cry adventures?"

The other announcement is The Crew 2 [http://forums.ubi.com/showthread.php/1666140]. It too has no further information, other than a tease that reads, "Beyond the road... Stay with us for more high octane thrills!"

Finally, the Ubisoft UK Twitter account reminds us to "sharpens your blade," as an Assassin's Creed announcement is apparently coming soon as well. Here's the tweet:

[tweet t=https://twitter.com/Assassins_UK/status/864511845994024960]

With E3 just under a month away, it's likely we're going to see a lot more announcements accompanied by little to no information. At least we won't have to wait too much longer to get some details.

None of those games interest me. Rayman is the only ubisoft title I have any faith in.

I'm actually interested in this. The AC logo looks older, being made of stone, and could mean a return to a more simpler style of stabby stabby of the older games.

And Farcry 5 looks like it is sponsored by Pepsi. So that's a refreshing change of pace.

I see what you did there.

OT: I can see their marketing department worked really hard on that Far Cry logo.

In all seriousness though, if any of these games actually bring something new to the table rather than sticking to the very tired Ubisoft formula I'm interested. Far Cry and Assassin's Creed are both franchises with solid entries and a lot of potential. The Crew... I dunno- I feel like Forza Horizon pretty much has this type of game covered already and they're great.

Honestly, unless the next Far Cry game lets me hunt dinosaurs like T-Rexes or raptors(which I'm positive Far Cry Primal had none of those), I'll just stick with trying to finish Far Cry 3 whenever I get back to that.

As for The Crew 2, That game lost me at the Microtransactions.

And as for the new Assassin's Creed game, I'm gonna bet it's another AC game with a setting change with nothing really new beyond that.

Hey, Far Cry 5 logo is different, hopefully they will break away from the Far Cry 3 mold and try something more fresh.

Far Cry 3 was a good game but we had 4, Primal and Blood Dragon (all rather good) that all played the same.

Far Cry 5 - I guess it'll be good. But even 4 was bit of a retread. Blood Dragon was interesting (whatever happened to the sequel that was talked about). Primal was just trash because it relied on Far Cry's horrible melee system and braindead AI help.

The Crew - Will they have incorporated some sort of gameplay besides drive on the line?

AssCreed - Well they need a)Not a giant glitch fest, and b)Some sort of return to the actual open ended assassination play. Maybe they can buy the Hitman developers off Square for some tips. And either ditch the future stuff or do something intelligible with it.

You know what? The Crew was fun. The gameplay was pleasantly arcadey, the map was impressive and playing with your buddies was excellent. I, and everyone who I know that played the first game, am interested in the sequel.

Do I lose my membership for not being a cynical shithead now?

If Far Cry does the long rumoured Antarctica setting, I'll be interested.

Personally I'd be way more interested in a new Driver than anything The Crew has to offer.

Dems da rules. Please leave your badge and offical cynic-launcher at the desk on your way out. And no gawping in awe at the huge marketing posters we just put up, we have a stoic image to maintain and your pension is already on brittle ice as it is.

These details are bearbarebones, but am curious as long as they have no online-only restrictions like NFS has decided to go.

I'm sure Info Wars can prove you wrong by showing footage from The Flintstones.
Also as long as The Crew 2 is beyond the road.... "I Wanna Go To Space!"

So you're good with it so long as they take the series in a different direction from what its on?

The Crew 2? Unexpected.

I own that game, but only because I got it for free/dirt cheap somewhat shortly after it came out. I haven't played it, but I haven't exactly heard stellar things about it. Can't really say that I expected this to get a sequel.

As for AC and FarCry: par for the course. Nobody should have been surprised. Will be interested where FarCry is set, and the same goes for AC - if it isn't Egypt.

It's all but been confirmed that it is in Egypt.

...it's also at this point that the idea of Assassin's Creed crossing over with Prince of Persia occurred to me.

...weird. 0_0

Ubisoft has one shot to prove their Assassin's Creed hiatus wasn't for nothing. Bring it back Ubisoft, c'mon.

Dude. Far Cry in Cold War Russia. It needs to happen.
We already had a FarCry that takes place in Cold Mountainous regions with Taiga forests at lower elevations.
And we also already had a FarCry take place in savannas and one in a jungle. So how 'bout something properly new?

Wow, another Far Cry and Assassin's Creed; what a shocker. I stopped buying anything from them since Rayman Legends. And it was because of them pushing back an already finished game, only to set it up to fail, became the final nail in the coffin for me.

The next Far Cry game will be set in North Korea to Capitalize on current events. I imagine your an American student over their being guided round by a guide when the shit hits the fan, you get accused of being a spy and you have to work with the CIA to be able to escape out.

Because the prior Africa setting was very shallow, Far Cry 2 had no Wild Life for example.

Bunch a' old cynics in this thread! I'm willing to give Assassin's Creed the benefit of... a review before writing it off. I'm looking forward to the E3 gameplay reveal to confirm some of the leaks. Like a hood button (But, why?), no synchronization towers, and an eagle buddy.

Ooooooh boy, can't fucking wait to climb those towers, clear those strongholds and collects 14/100 of those meaningless thingamajigs using a mixture of simplistic and unnecessary stealth and equally simplistic combat.

Which Ubisoft game am I even talking about? You have no fucking idea!
