Ubisoft?CEO Yves Guillemot today stated that there’ll be no new Assassin’s Creed game in 2019.
Assassin’s Creed once was a yearly franchise. Beginning with Assassin’s Creed II last season, a whole new Assassin’s Creed launched ever year taking 2015s Assassin’s Creed Syndicate. Following negative reception for Unity, and also the disappointing sales for Syndicate, Ubisoft opted to supply its developers extra development time. Caused by this season off was Assassin’s Creed Origins, a powerful advance for any franchise. However, instead of taking another year off, Ubisoft intentions to launch a fresh entry, Assassin’s Creed Odyssey this season. However, after Odyssey, the franchise means to take another break.
Speaking to GameSpot at Gamescom, Guillemot confirmed that no Assassin’s Creed is nearly here in the next fiscal year. Really the only reason we’re getting Odyssey during fiscal year 2019 is because it was actually being developed alongside Origins by using a separate team.
“On Assassin’s, we got a game [in 2017] and we have one at the moment, but and also a going to have got a full-fledged Assassin’s next year,” said Guillemot. “It’s even if the c’s were working separately, and we all have two games now, 1 year following your other. But batch that we get you’re not planning to have got a fully fledged one.”
Ubisoft promises to support Odyssey with additional post-launch content in comparison to Origins. Origins had two major story expansions (The Hidden Ones and Curse on the Pharaohs). Each added new stories, characters, weapons, and areas for more information regarding. Hopefully, Odyssey expands on the amount Origins did with a lot more story content.
Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is out with friends October 5 on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
