Update: Juhani has mentioned on ArtStation that concept art is “for an upcoming personal short film project. Not related in any way to Ubisoft or it’s IPs.”
Original News: The artist, Juhani Jokinen, is working as an Associate Lead Concept Artist on behalf of Ubisoft and in recent hours has published on his ArtStation profile a mysterious concept image that could refer to one of the next projects of the French house.
The artwork in question (remember, a simple concept) shows a dystopian and obscure setting, probably linked in some way to the East, at least considering the Kanji characters on the lower left.
More precisely, the project in question should be in development at RedLynk, the Trials series team, since Jokinen has been working there since 2016. We do not know what is hidden behind this mysterious image, but at first glance, it seems to be a new IP and not a new chapter in a series that we already know about.
Trials of the Blood Dragon is a video game that belongs to the Trials series published by Ubisoft Entertainment for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
Difficult to know more, as the source is reliable it is not clear if the concept is related to a new game or to a project that may be canceled.
We just have to wait for any confirmations or denials by Ubisoft. What do you think of this concept art? Tell us in the comments below.
