"Unannounced Ubisoft Titles Hit The Internet"

Ubisoft is reportedly 'displeased' that a number of unannounced titles have been revealed on the internet, including new titles in the Far Cry and Splinter Cell series. Apparently a 2GB file reportedly made its way to Ubisoft's ftp server containing artwork, logos and screenshots for announced and unannounced titles, including a tech demo for Far Cry 2. The file has since been removed from the site.
An anonymous Ubisoft representative stated that:
"We are clearly displeased that confidential information from Ubisoft has been distributed on the internet. The publication of this type of information can only be harmful to the game development process and we will take all steps necessary to prevent this from happening in the future. We are still investigating the events that lead to this information leak and at this time have no further comment."
A full list of the announced and unannounced games contained in the file has been included below:
Far Cry 2
Far Cry PSP
Far Cry Wii
Lost Naruto 360
Prince of Persia 4
Rainbow 6: Vegas
Splinter Cell Conviction
Star Wars PSP
Shaun White Snowboarding
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles GBA
2006 has certainly been a bad year for Ubisoft and mistakes. In March of this year a release schedule some how made its way to an US consumer site, revealing release dates for multiple titles and indicating a November release for PS3.
It certainly appears that there are some interesting console and PC titles in the works at Ubisoft. Feel free to discuss this article in our forum
