Ubisoft Announces Project Q, a ‘Team Battle Arena’ Game That Isn’t a Battle Royale

Update (4/23/22) – Ubisoft has also confirmed that it has no plans to add NFTs to Project Q.

After various leaks, Ubisoft has officially announced Project Q, a “team battle arena letting players truly own the experience” that is not a Battle Royale.

Ubisoft announced the news on Twitter, saying “the game is in early development and we will keep testing, so for now all you can do is register for upcoming tests.” Alongside sharing the first concept art for the game, Ubisoft added that it is not a Battle Royale and will instead “feature a variety of PvP modes with one single goal in mind: FUN!”

The image shows four characters in what very well may be Central Park in New York City. While it is only concept art, it looks to give hints as to some of their abilities. The character on the left is using a handheld rocket of sorts and has what appears to be dynamite on her.

Another character has a lightning bolt in their hair and yellow attire, teasing they may have lightning abilities or could be very fast. There is also an older character holding a shovel that looks to have the ability to fly or glide. Lastly, a character with glasses is standing on the bridge taking it all in.

As reported by VGC, leaked gameplay of Project Q had begun leaking online after Ubisoft invited players to test this new game. It has a look similar to Fortnite but, as Ubisoft states, it is not a Battle Royale.

Every Ubisoft Game in Development

It was said to have two game modes in a Battle Royale called Showdown and a control-style mode called Battle Zone, but Ubisoft’s statements could mean Showdown is a different type of mode. The game also said to have heroes with unique weapons, abilities, and skills and something called “Wonders.”

Weapons are said to be different than your traditional offerings and include a “deck of cards, fireworks, hammers, sticks, and paintguns.”

Project Q is another game that was part of the GeForce Now database leak that also included a PC version of Final Fantasy VII Remake and God of War, a remaster of Chrono Cross.
