A surprise hit when it launched back in 2020, Ubisoft has reportedly canceled the sequel to Immortals Fenyx Rising in favor of focusing on their more important brands.
VGC states that according to multiple sources, a sequel was in early development over at Ubisoft Quebec but was scrapped just earlier this month due to “perceived challenges around establishing the IP.”
Ubisoft had originally intended to grow the franchise, with Jeff Grubb even discussing during one episode of their Game Mess Podcast that a spin-off was being done and based on Hawaiian/Polynesian culture.
According to VGC’s sources, “future plans for Immortals were cast into doubt after the company decided to pivot towards its most prominent brands.” It stands to argue that the brand being implied is Assassin’s Creed, among others.
