As Ubisoft announced on the official Discord server, the company decided to stop ongoing work on the Battle Royal project “Project Q”. Unfortunately, it was not revealed why this decision was made.
A few days ago we not only received the message that those responsible at Ubisoft decided to postpone the release of the pirate adventure “Skull & Bones” to the 2023/2024 financial year (April 1, 2023 – March 31, 2024).
In addition, the French company acknowledged that various projects have been discontinued. After no specific names were initially mentioned, we now know that among the titles that have been discontinued is “Project Q”, which was announced last April and expands the classic Battle Royale gameplay with interesting ideas such as varied modes and PvP arenas should.
The end of the project certainly comes as a bit of a surprise, since it was only recently was reportedthat a total of three extensive play tests for “Project Q” are planned in the coming months.
The statement of those responsible in the wording
About the official Discord server, which has since been closed, it says about the end of “Project Q”: “The first closed test was a great milestone for us because of all the work of the team, your great support and your great feedback. We loved the amazing energy of this discord. That was our fuel for the project. Your feedback has been a true gift and has allowed us to grow as a developer to do our best for you, our players.”
It continued: “All these warm moments make this announcement difficult: Unfortunately, we have to cancel our upcoming closed tests as development of Project Q has stopped. It also means we have to shut down this discord server.”
More news on the topic:
Why “Project Q” fell victim to the red pen was not revealed. Instead, the developers simply said goodbye with the words: “We don’t have any further information to share at the moment, but we want to thank you all for your passion and love for Project Q.”
According to unconfirmed reports, Ubisoft has meanwhile been working on twelve different Battle Royale titles. So it’s quite possible that this was a factor in the decision to discontinue Project Q.
