Don’t expect a new Assassin’s Creed game next year

Ubisoft has confirmed that there will no new Assassin’s Creed game in 2019. Good thing Odyssey is going to be so massive.

Skip year

As strategies go, this is a good one. Well, I think it is anyway. Back when AC games did arrive on a yearly basis, it seemed as though people were burning out on them. Then Ubi skipped over to Origins, and there’s an excitement about the franchise again. So much so, that people who weren’t all that pumped for even that game seem to be up for Odyssey, this year’s installment.

Odyssey is supposed to be an absolutely enormous game too. That’s sounding like it’ll be a good thing for fans, since there will be no release next year. Speaking to Gamespot last week, Ubi head Yves Guillemot explained that there won’t be “a full-fledged Assassin’s next year”.

Industry website MCV points out too, that that doesn’t mean that we’re getting a spin-off. No, instead Guillemot is referring to expansions for Odyssey. Apparently, the game was intended to be a multi-year holdover for fans.

“The team really want to give, on a regular basis, some new possibilities for play,” he said, “So when you get [Odyssey] this year, you’re going to get in for a couple of years, actually.”
