Ubisoft's Surprising Reveal: BattleCore Arena Reintroduced

Ubisoft, a titan in the gaming industry, recently made a puzzling move by re-announcing BattleCore Arena, a game that originally saw its release more than six years ago. This unexpected move has stirred a mix of curiosity and confusion among gamers and industry watchers alike.

BattleCore Arena, developed by the relatively unknown French studio Cosmic Ray Studio, debuted on Steam in 2017. The game, which features mechanized balls equipped with explosive lasers, offers a unique blend of gravity-defying movement and high-octane combat. Despite its initial release, the game underwent a significant 'cleansing' in 2022 on SteamDB, where most of its assets and information were removed.

In a strange twist, Ubisoft's recent announcement mirrors the game's original promotional material, raising questions about the company's intentions and plans for this title. The announcement, made on Ubisoft's primary Twitter account with over 10 million followers, contrasts sharply with the game's own Twitter profile, which has remained largely inactive and obscure.


The re-introduction of BattleCore Arena as a free-to-play, arena-based shooter has left many wondering about Ubisoft's strategy. The game's description promises a competitive platform shooter experience where mastering gravity is key to victory. This announcement, inviting players to a technical test in early February, marks the game's first major activity since its last update in May 2023.

As the gaming community tries to piece together this puzzle, we've reached out to Ubisoft for further insights. The current theory is that Ubisoft may have acquired the game quietly in the past and has been developing it behind the scenes.
