It showed cutscenes, voice acting, and even gameplay. Since then, Ubisoft has gone radio silent on the title, with most announcements being that it won’t be shown at various events, such as E3, throughout 2021.

After this delay, the game received an indefinite delay and with the report of today, it seems that this indefinite delay may last even longer.
