Ubisoft said these titles will be among six games released for Xbox One in the system's first year. Customers can expect a mix of new 'episodes' of existing franchises, as well as new IPs and digital titles.

"The next generation of consoles will reinvigorate our industry and make it possible for us to deliver incredible new entertainment to gamers," Ubisoft co-founder and CEO, Yves Guillemot, said.

"Our teams are using the innovations in connectivity, immersion and social gaming included in Xbox One to create original and memorable next-gen gaming experiences."

Ubisoft will reveal more of its scheduled lineup and plans for the new console at the E3 trade show, an event for computer and video games-related products which is being held in Los Angeles from 11-13 June.
