Ubisoft announced another new Tom Clancy Franchise today in the form of a new air combat brand. The first game in this new IP is slated for a 2008 release and development will be handled by Ubisoft’s Bucharest studio.
“Ubisoft has an unrivaled track record of creating and sustaining new brands,” said Serge Hascoet, chief creative officer at Ubisoft. “Our commitment to refreshing our catalog with regular introduction of new IPs is what keeps gamers coming back for more. With this new brand we’re redefining the aerial combat genre and extending the Tom Clancy universe to deliver a compelling new action title to next-generation gamers.”
Not many details are available about the new IP, but Ubisoft did spill a little bit about the premise of the game. The setting of the game is sometime in the future where a powerful private military force attacks the United States. The game puts you in the cockpit of a high powered advanced jet fighter as you presumably defend the US.
Ubisoft is aiming to set the benchmark for flight combat with this new IP and aims to deliver an experience with all the action and excitement of modern air combat.
