According to online rumors, the Immortals Fenyx Rising sequel will be more of a spin-off than a sequel, and it will abandon ancient Greece setting in favor of another.
Speaking on the most recent episode of the Game Mess Decides podcast, Jeff Grubb disclosed that Hawaiian Polynesian culture would serve as the inspiration for the successor to the vibrant open-world game by Ubisoft, whose production name is Oxygen. Additionally, the creator is considering changing the game’s aesthetic to avoid being overly influenced by Zelda: Breath of the Wild while maintaining a stylized appearance.
“It’s based on Hawaiian Polynesian culture this time around. It still has a God narrator. They try to still be visually stylized but it’s less of a copy of Breath of the Wild. It’s in early pre-production, seen some concept art, it’s coming maybe 2025.”
Ubisoft revealed canceling Ghost Recon Frontline, Splinter Cell VR, and two unannounced projects during the earnings call on Thursday. Additionally, Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora was postponed. It will now be available in the company’s fiscal year, which starts in April 2023, rather than the original calendar year 2022.
