It seems that Ubisoft Stockholm is currently working on a new IP and an unannounced project. A few job postings were found on the official website of the Stockholm branch which mentioned it. Not only that, all of the job postings had [NEW IP] written beside them. Some of the postings that are mentioned are for an Animation/Engine Programmer, Lead Game Designer, Build & Release Engineer, and many more. There hasn’t been any mention of what kind of game the new IP or project will be.
Full details of the job postings are available here.
Ubisoft Stockholm’s New IP and Unannounced Project: What Are They?
So far, other than the job postings there hasn’t been any solid information regarding the games from the Swedish branch. Ubisoft Stockholm was founded way back in 2017. Not only that, Patrick Bach who worked at EA’s DICE studio was said to lead this new studio. In addition to that, it was also clearly mentioned that the new studio would work with Massive Entertainment on the new Avatar game. Since then there has been no news regarding the studio. Moreover, Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora was announced last year but there has been no mention of the Stockholm studio.
From the looks of the job postings, it seems that the studio is clearly ambitious of both the games. We can expect that the studio is working on it with full dedication. Perhaps we might see a new type of game not previously done by Ubisoft. Or, we might see a different blend of gameplay mechanics in accordance with the usual Ubisoft formula.
