 A new Assassin's Creed could be one of the first major PS5 and Xbox Series X games

And a new Far Cry is possibly on the way too!
A new Assassin's Creed could be one of the first big titles to release on PS5 and Xbox X this season.
We all know that Ubisoft is planning to release five AAA games between April 2020 and March 2021, and the fun part is, all these games are boasting about Next-gen support. So far Ubisoft has revealed three of the games - Gods and Monsters, Watch Dogs: Legion and Rainbow Six Quarantine. The other two titles are still a mystery but don't worry we've got Watson working on them.
Shinobi602 on Twitter tweeted an image of Ubisoft along with the lines that say, "Ubisoft will launch 5 AAA games between April 2020 - March 2021, including Watch Dogs: Legion, Gods & Monsters and Rainbow 6: Quarantine.

The other two are also from Ubisoft's "biggest franchises".

Kotaku's Jason Schreier retweeted saying anyone hoping for Splinter Cell is going to be disappointed as he claims the other two games are Assassin's Creed and Far Cry. The tweet reads, "Anyone holding out hope for Splinter Cell is, once again, going to be disappointed. Sorry! (It’s AC and Far Cry.)"
We agree that we should treat rumours with skepticism but at the same time, Schreier has been a reliable source most of the time when it comes to industry news.
It was almost guaranteed that Ubisoft will release two games under two of their biggest franchises for the next-gen consoles. And when it comes to biggest franchises under Ubisoft you certainly can't forget Assassin's Creed or Far Cry series. If you think about it, it's been two years since Assassin's Creed and Far Cry 5 was released. This is high time they add new installments of the series.
It's highly unlikely that both games will be released at the year-end. Generally, these games come out maintaining at least a month-long gap. Which makes sense because, both the games demands time and both games are fantastic open-world games from the same publisher.
Either way, considering the data we have right now, it is safe to assume that Assassin's Creed and Far Cry are going to come out soon for the upcoming next-gen consoles.
