Recently we heard that there wouldn’t be an Assassin’s Creed release in 2016 however, Ubisoft’s plans are much bigger than this and in fact, there won’t be an annual schedule for Assassin’s Creed at all anymore.
This was confirmed by Ubisoft’s CEO Yves Guillemot today, revealing that the popular game series will not revert back to an annual cycle after this year’s break, that might be a disappoint to some, but for a lot of people that might be just the news they have been waiting for, after the game’s stories have become somewhat lacking over the last few years.
Yves Guillemot explained the news to Eurogamer:
Ubisoft is making “a strong push on multiplayer-centric games”, Guillemot said, adding that Ubisoft is moving away from “fire and forget” single releases to providing year-round updates for players – which is a more reliable source of income. Guillemot name-checked The Division and Rainbow Six Siege as examples of this, as well as the upcoming For Honor and another AAA game due this financial year which will be “driven” by multiplayer.
As always we will let you know if we hear anything about the Assassin’s Creed series if we hear anything.
