It will be about two friends, “two protagonists who will follow different paths in their lives with different motivations, connected by their friendship”, commented. However, at that very moment he recognized that he saw it difficult to make that project a reality because don’t think it was “the kind of game Ubisoft wants to make”. Now it seems that the company wants to bet again on productions like these, although we will not leave doubts until the beginning of 2022.
