It seems the annual Assassin’s Creed is off the table for now

If there ever was a case for series fatigue, the Assassin’s Creed franchise is probably the best example. There is no doubt that the quality of the games and the stories that came with it, saw a bit of a decline over the last couple of years. Until Ubisoft decided to take a bit of a break and release the refreshingly new Assassin’s Creed Origins.

The game was a welcome change to the tired formula, changing things up just enough with some RPG elements and interesting side quests, while still keeping things fresh and familiar. But due to the success of Assassin’s Creed Origins, some have been wondering if Ubisoft might fall back into its old habits of churning out annual releases like a production line. Thankfully, this will not be the case according to Ubisoft CEO, Yves Guillemot, who stated that they are for now focusing on Origins, and planning on releasing a few more DLCs:

So it doesn’t look like we’ll be getting a new Assassin’s Creed later in the year, seeing as Ubisoft is rather concentrating on fleshing out the world of Origins. But, we’re still a long way off from the end of the year game release window, and we never know what might be up Ubisoft’s sleeve. It does, however, look like they’ve learned their lesson since it seems like they’re taking a bit more time with development on some of their big franchise games these days.

    As it should be! It was no coincidence that they just happened to release one of the best AC games ever using this model. Which further proves that if you take your time, you’ll do wonders.

    • Couldn’t agree more. Assassin’s Creed Origins is not only the best AC game to date, it’s one of the best games of 2017. Busy playing it atm and I just can’t get enough of it.

        Its definitely on my next to buy list. Almost done with Frozen Wilds.

    I finished origins, was the best AC I’ve played so far, and I’ve played em all! I’m glad that they will be taking a break, give them some time to work on fresh ideas.
