  • Ubisoft is developing a sequel to its popular extreme winter sports title, Steep.

According to our source, Ubisoft is busy licensing third-party music, much like in the original. Steep featured tracks from the likes of Boomfunk MC’s, The Cinematic Orchestra, and Odesza.

Our source was unable to provide any further details.

Will Ubisoft Unveil the Game at E3?

Should Ubisoft adopt a similar announcement-to-release strategy as the original Steep, an unveiling at E3 2020 is a possibility. This does depend on the state of development, though, which our source was unable to confirm with any certainty.

Running with this, we can speculatively expect a late 2020 release date. This would position Steep 2 as a next-generation launch title or possibly a cross-generational release.
