Ubisoft’s Project Q was revealed in April 2022 after a number of leaks. At the time, it was described as a “crew battle area” game with “a wide range of PvP modes” that was in “early growth.”

Now Ubisoft say that they’ve cancelled it.

“We can verify we’ll now not assist the event of Project Q with a view to deal with precedence tasks, to which our groups are being reallocated,” an Ubisoft spokesperson advised VGC, after leaks over the cancellation earlier within the week.

Project Q was first revealed through a GeForce Now leak in November 2021, earlier than alleged footage (since eliminated) leaked out the next 12 months. These leaks ultimately led to Ubisoft confirming the game’s existence.

This information led to a French union calling for Ubisoft Paris staff to strike, and anger at the way it was communicated led to Ubisoft CEO apologising in a ‘I’m sorry you’re feeling that means’ means. Employee group A Better Ubisoft continues to marketing campaign for a greater response to many allegations of a poisonous office tradition inside the writer.
