Ubisoft has canceled Splinter Cell VR and Ghost Recon Frontline, alongside two unannounced games.

Four in-development titles have been canceled by Ubisoft, the publisher announced during an investor call. Of the titles was Splinter Cell VR, revealed back in 2020 and set to be a brand new Splinter Cell title made for virtual reality. Not much information on the title had been seen since its announcement, with the game having now officially been canceled.

Ghost Recon Frontline has met a similar fate. The title was to be a Battle Royale spin-off for the Ghost Recon franchise and was announced in October last year. With a promised 100+ players in a match, the game never received a release date.

Also cut were two unannounced projects from Ubisoft. According to Ubisoft CFO Frederick Duguet, all four projects were canceled to save costs so that the publisher could put “even more focus on our biggest development opportunities." 

Ubisoft has come under fire from fans recently due to its plans to end online service for a number of its older games, including Assassin's Creed II, Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands, and Rayman Legends. Select DLC for the affected games will be inaccessible and, in the case of Space Junkies, the game will lose functionality altogether.
