Late last year, the GeForce Now database from Nvidia leaked to the public, revealing a slew of unreleased games. One of Ubisoft’s entries on that list, “Project Q,” recently revealed more details, prompting Ubisoft to officially announce the game.
According to computerProject Q is a “PvP arena game” featuring a low player count, a fast-paced battle royale mode on a minimap, and a more traditional objective-capture mode.
Exputer’s coverage also includes early gameplay footage of Project Q. It’s worth noting that while the gameplay footage does include some projectile weapons, it doesn’t exactly look like a “shooter.” Demo players can choose from a number of items with unique abilities, such as the “Wings of Icarus”, which provides high jumps and hovering, or the “Rod of Wukong”, which has the ability to combo martial arts, allowing players to use a combination of ranged attacks and melee combat. Free switch between, crazy quarrel.
The focus on sports and melee combat may set Project Q apart from the multitude of PvP shooters on the market, and may be the motivating factor behind its curious “arena game” name.
So, we heard you heard… 🤷Codenamed “Project Q”, a team battle arena that allows players to truly own the experience!

Seemingly in response to this latest leak, Ubisoft has Official announcement of the game, still using the “Project Q” moniker, and has opened registration for a public playtest at an unspecified later date. Ubisoft’s announcement also clarified that the game is still in early development.
There are still many tantalizing entries in the Nvidia leak that have yet to receive official announcements, such as XCOM 3, Bioshock 2022, and PC ports of Metal Gear Solid 2 and 3. How many of these projects will see skylight.
