Hyper Space is a Free-to-Play Battle Royale Shooter by Ubisoft, Out in July – Rumour

It looks like Ubisoft are gearing up to make a surprise announcement of a completely new game that not many people may have seen coming- and one that almost didn’t leak, which would have been uncharacteristic for a Ubisoft game.

Over on Twitter, esports consultant Rod Breslau is reporting that as per anonymous sources, Ubisoft will be teasing a new game today with the codename Prisma Dimensions. That game is actually Hyper Space, a AAA “fast-paced” free-to-play battle royale first person shooter, developed by Ubisoft Montreal, the studio behind Rainbow Six and Assassin’s Creed.

Hyper Space is reportedly set in a “futuristic virtual world.” The game will enter closed beta next week, and will launch in full on July 12, probably with an announcement reserved for the E3-style digital event, Ubisoft Forward. It will launch on PC first, with a console launch coming later in the year.

Breslau also followed-that up more information, saying the game has been developed with streamers in mind and through a “full partnership” with Twitch. It will, in fact, supposedly feature “never seen levels of integration from a big game before.” For instance, as Breslau describes, “Twitch chat will among other things be able to directly impact the game live with game-changing events.”

He also states that Ubisoft have invited hundreds of streamers, professional players, outlets, and YouTubers for hands-on time with the game. Impressions and gameplay footage from this will be shared some time next week.

Of course, this is not official information, and as with any leak, don’t take this as confirmation- though it seems this will probably get confirmed in a week, so we’ll find out soon enough. Stay tuned for more updates.
