Ubisoft has decided to cancel its sequel to Immortals Fenyx Rising, the 2020 open-world adventure game with mythological elements from Assassin’s Creed Odyssey developer Ubisoft Quebec, according to sources with VGC. The decision was supposedly made after Ubisoft realized that it would be too difficult to establish the IP as a major franchise. Jeff Grubb, Giant Bomb journalist, reported last year that the sequel to Immortals Fenyx Rising would have allowed players to explore mythologies beyond Greece, such as Hawaiian Polynesian myths.

[…] a follow-up game was in early development at Ubisoft Quebec, but company leadership ultimately decided to cancel it earlier this month due to perceived challenges around establishing the IP.

VGC understands Immortals: Fenyx Rising did find a modest audience, but a lot of it came via discounting. And to put it into context, its sales in Europe were around 70% lower than what Assassin’s Creed Valhalla managed to achieve over a similar timeframe.
