No new Assassin’s Creed game in 2019, Ubisoft says

A new Assassin’s Creed title won’t be released in 2019, Ubisoft has confirmed.

Speaking with Gamespot at Gamescom, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot confirmed that there won’t be a “fully-fledged” Assassin’s Creed game — or spin-offs — released next year.

Instead, it’s all about the upcoming Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey (and a bit about Origins too, really).

“We are not going to have a full-fledged Assassin’s next year,” Guillemot said. “It’s just because the team were working separately, [that] we have two games now, one year after the other. But next year you’re not going to have a fully fledged one.”

Moving forward, though, it’s all about post-launch content for Odyssey.

“When you get [Odyssey] this year, you’re going to get in for a couple of years, actually,” Guillemot continued.

Back in 2016, Ubisoft said it would stop annual releases of the Assassin’s Creed franchise… which prompted concerns when last year’s Assassin’s Creed: Origins was to be followed up by this year’s Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey. It’s good to know that Ubisoft is aware of the potentials of franchise fatigue once again.

Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey heads to Windows PC, Xbox One and PS4 on 5 October.
