In other words, the project called Pioneer is still in development, and it may still even resemble the trailer that was snuck into Watch Dogs 2. But it no longer resembles the Pioneer that was originally planned. And we’ll have to wait and see if it ever actually comes out.
That's a Ubi Singapore-led game.I can't help but wonder if it's Skull & Bones. Game was announced as PvP -> everyone and their dog expressed displeasure it wasn't the AssCreed-free, single-player pirate game hinted at in the post-Black Flag player survey -> Ubi delayed the game indefinitely to add a single-player component -> radio silence.
Edit Seemingly not, per JS's post below.
This seems like an extension of the delays and development pipeline changes brought on by the failure of Division 2 and Breakpoint right? Sad to hear a new IP is getting trashed, but at least everyone involved gets moved to other projects.
You know what, fuck it. You're here. I'll ask.
I think The Division to some extent is hamstrung by it being grounded. There's only so much you can do with gear and weapons when the game takes place in reality. So if they were doing some sort of sci-fi oriented shooter then they'd have a lot more variety in terms of loot you could get.
Yes and more of a push toward variety all across the publisher.
Sometimes projects gravitate in directions that don't work out, and sometimes when that happens, they get canceled. Not really fair to judge without knowing the actual story here.
Restructuring and getting projects scheduled for next time? This + the recent report of them approving of "original" pitches has me intrigued about what they come up with.
