Assassin’s Creed is taking a year off

For the first time since 2009, we won’t be seeing a new, yearly, Assassin’s Creed game.

As part of a quarterly financial report, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot confirmed that Assassin’s Creed would be taking a year off.

“We are now in a position to take the decision not to release a new Assassin’s Creed game in 2016-17, in order to give the brand a new dimension, while still presenting very solid targets for the fiscal year,” Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot said.

The news also came alongside word that Ubisoft would be releasing sequels to South Park: The Stick of Truth and Watch_Dogs during its 2017 fiscal year.
