Game news Tom Clancy’s XDefiant: Ubisoft’s multiplayer and free-to-play FPS begins an impersonation
In the shadow of the French publisher’s productions, we quickly forgot one of the company’s summer announcements. Remember that last July Ubisoft lifted the veil on its next title, both multiplayer and free-to-play, taking us into the world of Tom Clancy’s games. Little news has reached us about him, but there are already changes!

Ubisoft hunts Call of Duty lands
We assure you, also from our side, Tom Clancy’s XDefiant had been forgotten since its announcement nearly eight months agobut just reading his name brought back vague memories. This new intellectual property in the French publisher’s catalog therefore offers a kind of fusion of several Tom Clancy’s universes in the form of a first-person shooter to play online and free of charge.
In the shoes of a Defiant, personalized according to the game’s various factions, take your role as a support, tank, healer, or attacker to heart as you purge the opposing team. At the moment only a few game modes have been announced, such as escort mode, team deathmatch mode or domination mode. So far the game from Ubisoft has seemed very framed, if a bit too discreet, but that was without considering the small announcement surrounding the game, and more specifically about a change in its identity!
So, it’s Tom Clancy’s, but not really Tom Clancy’s…
As mentioned above, the title was announced by Ubisoft last July. The then-called “BattleCat” code ended a long line of rumors by revealing a bit more about the concept and the eventual title, Tom Clancy’s XDefiant
We’ll spoil the surprise for you in a moment, but the title is always mentioned XDefiant and that kind of smiley face in the game’s title will always be visible on paper, although it will be a little less visible on the recently revised logo. No, what exceptionally changes is the disappearance of the “Tom Clancy’s” mention, which is quite surprising since the software’s proposal is made up of opposing factions, coming from the Splinter Cell, Ghost Recon Breakpoint and The Division licenses.
Ubisoft’s decision is easy to explain the expansion of the universes that the company wants to move into and which, for once, would no longer be limited to the universe of Tom Clancy, as the original proposal intended. So don’t call it” Tom Clancy’s XDefiant “but just” XDefiant ». Note that this change comes at the time of the announcement of several “insider sessions” allowing certain players to try out the shooter on PC first, then on consoles possibly with a higher number of players. XDefiant is expected at an unknown date on PC (via Ubisoft Connect), PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Amazon Luna and Stadia.
