Ubisoft needs to rethink its strategy for future Tom Clancy games

Ubisoft is having a lot of issues as a company right now, from a mass exodus of developers to a controversial non-fungible token (NFT) push that went down poorly with the majority of the gaming community. But, something you may have forgotten happened in 2021 is that Ubisoft unveiled its plans for the future of the Tom Clancy franchise – and no one seems to be overly keen on what the French publisher has in store.

The biggest shame is that Ubisoft has so many IPs that either have been or could be killer experiences if they just stopped rehashing the same imagination.

Ubisoft could be many things but what they are is deaf and blind to fan opinion.

They’re supposed to be realistic tactical games but they insist on making hero shooters and goofy loot.

Ubisoft is the decade's biggest waste of talent and IPs. They "live-service" single player games and make them not fun to play, so people have to buy the fun from their games via MTs.

Assume nothing but towers and NFTs.
