Alright all people, tidy up these ties (full Windsor, please, we’re not Wall Street animals) and open your Funfax to fiscal 2021.
Watch Dogs Legion, the cor blimey guv London model of Ubisoft’s open-world hack-o-murder simulator, was due on March sixth, 2020. Our Alice Bee was quite impressed by its Virtualondon when she visited in August. Rainbow Six Quarantine was broadly due in 2020, and I suppose now it’s due later in 2020. It’s a standalone spin-off from Siege’s Outbreak event mode, pitting three-player squads in opposition to hordes of notzombies. And Gods & Monsters is the colorful open-world action-adventure game which we don’t know a lot about however I’ve described as trying like something between Assassin’s Creed and The Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild” as a result of I’m a monster. It was due on February 15th, 2020.
Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot stated on the investor convention name that these delays weren’t to prevented different games. They’re not petrified of Cyberpunk 2077 or owt, okay. More growth time probably means more-polished games so excellent news for us.

He did be aware that the game didn’t stand out sufficient, thoughts. And recognised that for a ‘live’ game supported post-launch with updates and enhancements, it’s more durable to generate curiosity in a sequel coming quickly after. Which all collectively broadly means it postpone present followers whereas failing to draw new ones. Welp.
Alright, that’s it. We’ll break for 3 hours for lunch. We’ve champagne and nibbles in Reception Room 6, a sedated cow in Canteen B to shave off your individual blue steak, and nostril sweet and banter within the bogs. See you bloody legends at 3pm to proceed smashing it.
