“XDefiant is a free-to-play, fast-paced arena shooter that combines intense gunplay with personalized loadouts and specialized factions, as teams of gunfighters battle for domination,” according to Ubisoft.

Ubisoft announced in January that it had cancelled three unannounced games and was planning to strengthen its focus on its biggest brands and live services following weaker than expected software sales over the holiday season.
Shortly after, it confirmed that it had cancelled a PvP battle arena game publicly referred to as ‘Project Q’.
