Ubisoft Announces The End of It's Last-Gen Support; The Division & New AAA Launching In Spring 2016
Tom Clancy's The Division will arrive in Ubisoft's 2016 fiscal year, which ends in March 2016. In addition to this, Rainbow Six Siege and an unannounced AAA title will also launch in the same window. These games are "key drivers" for Ubisoft in the coming year, according to its investor report.
Rainbow Six Siege will arrive in Q3 of FY2016 (which means it launches this fall) with The Division following in Q4 (somewhere between January and March 2016).
"It is never an easy decision to move a launch date," Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot said, stating that this is a move "that has always benefited the company." Guillemot added that Ubisoft will announce the new game this fall. Guillemot declined to comment on whether or not it was a new IP or an existing franchise.
All Ubisoft games going forward will be new-gen only, Guillemot said, with the exception of Just Dance.
Ubisoft announced Assassin's Creed Syndicate today, as well as its release date. Syndicate serves as another "key driver" for the company this year.
We've contacted Ubisoft for additional information on the unannounced AAA title.

You know what? When it was announced that Uncharted 4 was pushed back, I took it like a good soldier because they want to make a great game worthy of a closer.....and I'm sure Ubisoft wants to do great with the Division....but I'm getting really tired of this....its seems like EVERY game I'm interested in is getting pushed back.....all I'm saying is they better be good because this is getting a little much....and don't get me started on the telltale series...its seems we get an episode of GOT and TOTBL once every 5 months......at this rate Walking Dead season 3 isn't coming till 2016 too.
EDIT: LOL HA! *crazy laughter* I told ya, didn't even know this till I just looked it up:
