Ubisoft to Release Rainbow Six and Division Mobile Games Within One Year
Despite having cancelled numerous projects in recent weeks, Ubisoft stands firm in its desire to release almost a dozen new games in the coming year. It has now been revealed that a part of that line-up due to drop within the next twelve months includes Rainbow Six Mobile and The Division Resurgence.
This news comes following a financial update from the firm, during which the current health of the company and its future were detailed. There’s still a stacked agenda on the books, despite several large projects having been scrapped internally. There are high expectations that Rainbow Six Mobile and The Division Resurgence will be chart-topping titles, but can Ubisoft deliver on its promises?
Mobile gaming is dramatically popular – particularly in the world of esports. As it’s so remarkably accessible, billions of people around the world find themselves playing a mobile game of some kind every day, and developers have long sought to take advantage of that fact.
Ubisoft’s plans to release Rainbow Six Mobile and The Division Resurgence within the next year comes as nothing but good news to the broad community of handheld gaming fans.
In Rainbow Six Mobile, Ubisoft has promised a full-fledged and authentic Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six experience, fusing tactical gameplay with a fast-paced, high-octane rate of action. It’s a free-to-play title that, from early shots, actually looks quite fantastic.
And then, in The Division Resurgence, the developer has promised a ‘high-end AAA mobile looter-shooter’ like never before. It’s an open-world title, and it’ll reportedly boast a PvE campaign as well as a cooperative platform.
These titles are additional to the other mobile-based games that Ubisoft is developing for this year, such as Assassin’s Creed: Codename Jade, which suffered from a massive leak a few weeks ago.
In a statement given as part of the financial update that contained this news, Yves Guillemot, the CEO and Co-Founder of Ubisoft, spoke highly of the firm’s future:
We are committed to boosting our efficiency and executionthrough a more agileorganizationadapted to new market conditions… As we are focusedon building on our strengths, we are prioritizing our efforts on big brands and long-lastingLive games.

Few companies in the gaming space have had as rocky a time as Ubisoft has in recent weeks (and months). There are widespread hopes that the (somewhat) beloved developer and publisher can climb out of the hole it finds itself in and deliver some top-tier experiences in the year ahead.
