Don’t Expect A New Assassin’s Creed In 2019
Ubisoft has said that they won’t be working on a new Assassin’s Creed game for 2019, but rather they will be supporting this year’s entry Assassin’s Creed Odyssey which also got a brand new trailer at Gamescom which you can check out here.
Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot explained that Assassin’ Creed Odyssey’s 2018 release was doable because it has been developed on at the same time as 2017’s Assassin’s Creed Origins. This is what Yves had to say:
“On Assassin’s, we had a game [in 2018] and we have one this year, but we are not going to have a full-fledged Assassin’s next year,” said Guillemot. “It’s just because the team were working separately, so we have two games now, one year after the other. But next year you’re not going to have a fully fledged one.”
Gamespot also asked if there would be a spin-off title instead rather than a fully fledged entry Yves said this:
“What you’ll have is lots of content coming on [Assassin’s Creed Odyssey]. The team really want to give, on a regular basis, some new possibilities for play, so when you get [Odyssey] this year, you’re going to get in for a couple of years, actually.”
Yves also went on to explain how it was a good thing the company was missing a yearly schedule as it gives the developers time to focus on the game, Yves had this to say:
“[The time] gave the team the possibility to really bring what they wanted to. The community has been responding very well to it and when I see what we are bringing with Odyssey I know that the community that got back in with Origins will be amazed.”
