Ubisoft calls Skull & Bones and Avatar “AAAA games.” It turns out that there is another similar earlier project of the publisher

The term “AAAA” or “Quadruple A” is a new word in the gaming industry and Ubisoft is at the forefront of this transition. Skull and Bones is considered the first official AAAA game.

But, contrary to initial beliefs, Skull and Bones was not Ubisoft's first AAA game. It looks like that honor is reserved for Far Cry 6 in 2020.

Informant Timur222 discovered that Far Cry 6 was also called “AAA” even before its release in 2020.< /p>

A tweet from September 2020 reported that Ubisoft Berlin was developing a Quadruple A game, as evidenced by the project coordinator's LinkedIn profile. It has now been revealed that this game was Far Cry 6.

Although the concept of AAAA games is called a new step in the gaming industry, many consider it a marketing tactic by Ubisoft. After all, such games can hardly be called revolutionary in any aspects.

Skull and Bones can serve as a striking example of such skepticism: its development lasted more than ten years, approximately 200 million were spent dollars, was called an AAAA game, but ultimately disappointed upon release.

Similarly, Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora from Ubisoft, also classified as AAAA, did not live up to expectations.
