Ubisoft just announced the next installment within the Tom Clancy franchise, titled Tom Clancy XDefiant, a new first-person arena shooter with teams of six facing off against each other in fast paced, intense combat that we now know is expected to have full cross-play support at launch.
Tom Clancy’s XDefiant was revealed earlier today (July 19) during a special livestream event focused entirely on this new announcement, that featured a new trailer showing off more gameplay and an interview with two of the developers.
The news surrounding cross-play was revealed in a press release following the announcement, after listing that Tom Clancy’s XDefiant will release on PS5, PS4 and all other major consoles excluding Nintendo Switch.
What’s very interesting about Tom Clancy’s XDefiant is that according to Ubisoft, the different characters or “Defiants” you’ll play as will come from across different Ubisoft franchises, with the Wolves representing Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon, the Echelon representing Splinter Cell, and the Outcasts representing Tom Clancy’s The Division.
