Ubisoft isn’t doing very well economically speaking, and this has had a big impact on the Montreal-based company. The publisher had to postpone Skull & Bones again (now we can’t stand it anymore), as well as announcing that he has canceled some projects and titles in development. Among these is also Project Q!
The unofficially named game was announced last year and was described as a PvP battle arena with a low number of players, which proposed both a battle royale mode fast on a small map, either a more traditional way of capturing targets. From what emerged, apparently Project Q didn’t warm the hearts of early players during preliminary playstests, so much so that the other tests scheduled for 2023 would have already been canceled before the announcement of the stop to work. Below is the official message disclosed by Ubisoft on the dedicated Discord server:
“The first closed test was a huge milestone for us thanks to all the work done by the team, your amazing support and your great welcome. We loved the amazing energy of this Discord, it was our fuel for the project. Your feedback has been a real gift and has allowed us to grow as developers to do our best for you, our players. All these hot moments make this announcement more difficult to make – unfortunately we have to cancel our next closed tests as Project Q will no longer continue development. This also means that we will have to shut down this Discord server.”
At the moment we do not know if the defunct IP is part of the 3 titles cut by the company, or if it was added in the running. We will update you as soon as further details on the delicate Ubisoft affair arrive.
