Ubisoft‘s next Battle Arena title, codenamed Project Q, has reportedly been canceled, only days after the developer confirmed the cancellation of three unannounced games. It’s unclear why this announcement came now, but it was made public on Ubisoft’s official play testers’ Discord server.
Though the game was announced in April of last year and was supposed to go through a series of playtests this year, the developer update reveals that development on the game has ceased. The reason for the cancellation of the project is currently unclear, though if it was scheduled for beta tests this year, it surely was far along in its developmental stage.
While it is currently unclear if this is one of the ‘unannounced games’ that was scrapped by Ubisoft earlier, there is not a lot to say at this point, especially when nothing much was said from the developers themselves. The official Discord announcement reads:
We hope you are all well and safe. We want to start by saying how amazing this group has been since we started. We’ve shared so many great moments and we cherish the
relationships we have built with all of you. We have gone through so many amazing moments together that will stay in our memory.
The first closed test was a great milestone for us because of all the work put in from the team, your amazing support, and your great reception! We loved the amazing energy on this discord, it was our fuel for the project. Your feedback was a true gift and allowed us to grow as developers in order to do our best for you, our players.
All these warm moments make this announcement harder to make: sadly we have to cancel our upcoming closed tests as Project Q will no longer continue development. This also means that we will need to shut down this Discord server.
We don’t have further information to communicate right now but we want to thank you all for your passion and your love for Project Q. All your messages and support has meant the world to us and has been a major boost for our teams since the beginning.
We will be closing this discord server in the upcoming days. But until then please share your memories and most memorable moments with us and we will gladly relay the messages to the team. It was an amazing ride for us, and we’ll keep an incredible memory of it.
We wish you all the best for the future.
Our warmest regards,
The Project Q Dev Team
