Trailer Switch

With the recent delay of Skull and Bones, which won't come out before March 2023, Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope is the only big Ubisoft game to come out this year and only Switch owners will be able to enjoy it. Not having one of Ubisoft's AAA for the end of the year feels a bit strange, and it's clearly a first, but we're confident that this sequel to Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle is going to be awesome.

Mario + Rabbids: Sparks of Hope was the absolute highlight of that horrible Ubisoft Forward 2022 show, so I'm sure it will be both critically and commercially successful. Which given the passion shown by the developers, it deserves so.

As for Skulls & Bones and everything else going on with Ubisoft, I feel like the whole sexism at Ubisoft was a far bigger hit to their "well-oiled almost the same type of game formula factory". Just losing that toxic person who was the one responsible for the final say in all their games was a big hit, then factoring everything else, Ubisoft certainly took some damage to their production effectiveness. Though I don't feel bad about any of this, as it was a problem Ubisoft created for itself and those toxic people can go to hell, for all I care.

I still wish Ubisoft had actually worked on the issues instead of doing almost nothing and pretending they don't exist anymore - the people behind the Ubisoft's workers unite alliance - A Better Ubisoft - said 2 years in a row that most of the issues still haven't been resolved, or even addressed by management.

I love Ubisoft's games, but even someone like me who would play almost every game Ubisoft released, I haven't been feeling excited for their games for some time now. That terrible Assassin's Creed showcase for the franchise's 15th anniversary, Beyond Good & Evil 2 disappearance, the butchering of a simple Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time remake and its subsequent delays, Skull & Bones 10 year in development hell, and so, so much more give me the impression Ubisoft has lost a step or two.

I just feel like Ubisoft needs a very deep and wide restructuring, in order for something like what happened with Capcom can happen to Ubisoft, where for a decade or so Capcom was doing really bad and bizarre decisions - take Resident Evil 6 as an example of that time, then something happened and they started hitting it out of the park over and over. Perfect example of a AAA gaming company who lost their way for a while and then came back on top. I'm really hoping the same happens with Ubisoft, but I'm not holding my breath - specially with Yves Guillemot at the helm, which might be the biggest obstacle for a "Better Ubisoft".
