With new characters coming out in XDefiant Season 1, fans are likely wondering what else the developers have in store. Given how Ubisoft's free-to-play first-person shooter features a roster from their library of games, some are curious about which other games might appear in the crossover title.

Rumored New XDefiant Characters

Dataminer Rogue TX, who recently got their X (formerly known as Twitter) account suspended, leaked some information regarding possible future characters coming to the game. Based on the now-deleted tweet, assets of characters based on The Crew and Rabbids franchise were found.

Honestly, it's difficult to get a grasp on having cute looney characters from the Rabbids franchise hop on a realistic-looking game like XDefiant. From a logical standpoint, a map based on the cartoon-looking franchise will likely come to the surface. However, based on the data mine, it seems that these rabbits might become playable characters.

According to the dataminer, the following factions could be coming to the game:

  • Assassins (Assassin's Creed)
  • GSG9 – Blitz, IQ, Jaeger, or Bandit (Rainbow Six Siege)
  • The Highwaymen (Far Cry: New Dawn)
  • Ghosts (Ghost Recon: Breakpoint)
  • The Crew
  • Rabbids (Raving Rabbids franchise)

Another notable faction on this list is the Assassins. It's no secret that Assassin's Creed is one of Ubisoft's most successful gaming franchises. Considering how XDefiant is a crossover title among the developer's franchises, having the Assassins join the fray isn't out of the question.

However, it feels a bit bizarre having them shoot guns instead of throwing blades. But then again, there are games like Fortnite that already made these Assassins shoot bullets.

We're not entirely sure if Season 1's upcoming faction known as GSK is also the datamined GSG9. Both factions are from the Rainbow Six Siege franchise. Given this factor, it might be possible that the two factions are the same.

Other Leaked XDefiant Features

While readers should take these pieces of information with a grain of salt, dataminer Rogue TX proved to be accurate so far. They previously predicted that Capture the Flag mode was coming to XDefiant. As of Ubisoft's Season 1 announcement trailer, the said game mode is coming to the game. With that in mind, there's a possibility that these other features and items could make it to the game in the future.

Aside from the rumored characters, the dataminer found a few new weapons in the game's files. They found guns like the FAMAS, Sawed-off Shotgun, and Tommy Gun to name a few.

In addition to the weapons are potential new game modes. As mentioned earlier, Rogue TX predicted that Capture the Flag would be in the game. He also revealed that Team Deathmatch Mode (TDM) and Infection are in the game's files. Honestly, these game modes, especially TDM, are a perfect fit for an FPS like XDefiant.

The dataminer also predicted a Search and Destroy style mode called ‘1-Life Bomb ‘ will soon come to the game. XDefiant Executive Producer Mark Rubin later confirmed that the Search and Destroy game mode is now under development and will make its debut in the near future.

Given how Rogue TX's account was taken down, there's a possibility that Ubisoft was behind it. The developers wouldn't forcefully have something deleted if the leaked pieces of information didn't have any truth behind them. With that in mind, fans can stay hopeful to be able to run around XDefiant as either an Assassin or a Rabbid.
