At least that’s what Far Cry 4 and Assassin’s Creed III director says.
Inside Watch Dogs 2 there is a comic mission, as a result of which the main characters steal the “teaser of the game Ubisoft”. In 2016, Kotaku confirmed that it was not a joke. The French publisher did indeed plan to announce Pioneer in 2017. It was supposed to be a space exploration game.
However, in 2016, the media learned that Pioneer is under threat. Sources inside Ubisoft reported that the studio could not find an approach to the project, and the leads who worked on it changed one after another.
On January 15, director Far Cry 4 and Assassin’s Creed III, now working in his own studio, announced that the project is dead.
Judging by the only video, the game kind of resembled No Man’s Sky. Now she will remain a joke from Watch Dogs 2.
