After two grim news this week, with the announcement of the postponement of Riders Republic and Rainbow Six Extraction, Ubisoft is back in the spotlight with a new game! In a message posted on Twitter, the French developer and publisher gave us an appointment for tomorrow evening at 8:00 p.m. French time to present a brand new title from the Tom Clancy universe.
A surprise awaits you tomorrow 👀

First indiscretions about the type of title
After the first noises from the hallway, which are confirmed by these first pictures, it would be a Team multiplayer FPS with characters from Tom Clancy licenses. In all likelihood, this is the title that leaked in early June, a few days before the Ubisoft Forward conference.
Indeed, the VGC sitein particular, had published an article that revealed a certain amount of information. The title would be code-named “BattleCat” and would offer two game modes: Escort – escort a package to an extraction point – and ringleader – retrieve rings from fallen players. The “Echelons” from Faction
We know thatUbisoft wants to move a little more towards the free-to-play market. It also was last May The Heartland Division had been advertised as such. Will this “BattleCat” also be available for free? See you tomorrow to find out everything.
