Immortals Fenyx Rising Sequel Cancelled

A supposed sequel to 2020's Immortals Fenyx Rising has been cancelled, according to multiple VGC sources. The open world action title was spearheaded by the team behind Assassin's Creed Odyssey, and while it did come with a lot of the bloated baggage you'd expect from a Ubisoft sandbox, it was a really fun game if you were looking for a Breath of the Wild-esque romp across rolling fields and puzzle-packed dungeons.

And with that in mind, it's a bit of a shame that reports are saying Immortals won't be getting a sequel. VGC writes that Ubisoft canned its plans after the company decided to pivot towards its "most prominent brands". In other words, properties like Assassin's Creed are the focus.

So what does that tell us about Immortals in terms of commercial success? Well, the report says Fenyx's debut found a "modest" audience, but didn't have anywhere near the reach of something like, again, Assassin's Creed. The bottom line here is that Ubisoft seems to have cut its losses to go all-in on its heavy hitters.
