Ubisoft and Massive Entertainment’s groundbreaking Star Wars game (The Division series, Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora) hasn’t been heard from since early 2021, but it looks like the project’s release is closer than you might think.
As part of a recent financial report, Ubisoft indicated that in addition to Assassin’s Creed Mirage, Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora, Skull and Bones, and other projects, it plans to release another one before the end of March 2024. “big game”.
According to Kotaku sources who wished to remain anonymous, “big game” refers to Massive Entertainment’s Star Wars project. It is known by the code name Project Helix.
Two sources report that the development of Project Helix is not going very well, but expectations are high within Ubisoft. The game is believed to have a shot at becoming the company’s first real hit since Assassin’s Creed in a long time.
The team would also consider Ubisoft’s plans to release the game in the current fiscal year as overambitious and allow a transfer to the next fiscal year (from April 2024 to March 2025).
Transfers for Ubisoft are common. Assassin’s Creed Mirage (behind closed doors) and Skull and Bones (public) have been moved several times, and Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora is set to release in 2022.
Very little is known about Project Helix itself: at the formal announcement it was reported that the game will use the Snowdrop engine and that the events will be set in an open world. Kotaku adds that interstellar flight will appear in the project.
