Ubisoft Confirms Its Upcoming PvP Battle Arena Game “Project Q” Is Real

Ubisoft has confirmed that leaked images of a new, unannounced project codenamed Project Q are real.

The confirmation came just hours after footage of the game – believed to have been taken from the Team Battle Arena’s first closed test – was shared online.


“So we heard you heard…” Ubisoft tweeted, acknowledging the leak was real. “Introducing the codenamed Project Q, a team-based battle arena for players to make the experience their own! The game is in early development and we will continue to test, so for now all you can do is sign up for upcoming tests.

“By the way, this is not a Battle Royale. The game will feature a variety of PvP modes with one goal in mind: FUN!” another tweet clarified.

Perhaps most interesting of all for a company that is deeply committed to controversial NFT and blockchain technology, Ubisoft has added another Tweeter over, confirming upfront that Ubisoft “has no plans to add NFTs to this game.”

If you want to participate in the closed test, head over to the game’s registration page, which confirms that PvP play is heading to Xbox Series X, Xbox One, PS5, and PS4. You can also play on PC via Ubisoft Connect.

Interestingly, the registration page has apparently been updated to remove details about the new game, but it initially listed Project Q as an “innovative and modern PvP battle arena game” in “early development”. The closed test would have been the “first playable closed test” of the titles to gather player feedback on “the concept of the game and the core gameplay experience”.

A curious list of PC games leaked from a datamine of Nvidia’s GeForce Now service in September. At the time, Nvidia responded to the leak by saying the games were “speculative” and “used only for tracking and internal testing”, although various projects on this list were flagged as real – even obsolete in some. case.

However, Ubisoft created a Streisland effect by issuing a DMCA notice against the dataminer, which leaves no doubt that at least one of the Ubisoft games on the list – Project Over, Project Q, Project Meteor and Project Orlando – was a legitimate project. It remains to be seen if Project Q is the one and only accurate leaker included in this list…
