Ubisoft is one of the biggest video game publishers and developers in the industry, perhaps best known for series such as Assassin’s Creed and Far Cry.

In recent years especially, Ubisoft has been accused by some gamers of playing it safe with the likes of Assassin’s Creed and Far Cry for not mixing up the formula all that much and playing it safe within a comfort zone. To be fair, you can’t really blame Ubisoft for that approach because, with any successful company, it’s often best to stick with what you know will make money.

As reported by Insider Gaming, Ubisoft has three extraction shooters in the works. One is the upcoming free-to-play title Tom Clancy’s The Division Heartland developed by Red Storm Entertainment, the other is said to be a Far Cry spin-off. However, the third extraction shooter is a brand new IP said to be inspired by World War II.

The World War II extraction shooter hasn't officially been announced by Ubisoft, but it is rumoured to be released sometime between 2026 and 2027. While I like the idea of an extraction shooter set in this period, I can’t help but be sceptical.

It’s not uncommon for publishers to chase trends for that project to be released and be dead on arrival. In fact, it’s not outside the realms of possibility that a game can spend several years in development for it to be cancelled before it’s even seen the light of day. Personally, I just want the Ghost Recon series to return with its classic linear formula and tactical approach. Wishful thinking, I know.

Assuming that this World War II extraction shooter is released, it will likely be free-to-play and it will be released on PC, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S or even next-gen consoles. Only time will tell.
