Ubisoft has let slip that it will launch an 'unannounced franchise title' by the end of its current financial year, which wraps on March 31, 2019. 

There's nothing known about the mystery title right now, although considering it's an addition to an existing franchise, there's plenty of room for speculation.

Assassin's Creed is probably unlikely, seeing as how we've heard murmurs that the next game won't launch until 2019 and Ubisoft appears to be moving away from its annual release schedule for the franchise.

A new Watch Dogs has been mooted, although that also seems a little too premature right now. It's also safe to rule out Far Cry 6. 

Still, one thing we do know is it's not The Crew 2 or The Division 2; those games were both mentioned alongside the unannounced game, with the latter also due to ship by April next year.

Ubisoft has a barn full of franchises to pick from, so there's plenty more possibilities.

The publisher also confirmed in its earnings report that Skull and Bones won't make it out this year as planned.
