Unless you have been living in a cave for the past few weeks, you might have probably heard about the rumors regarding Ubisoft not releasing an Assassin’s Creed game this year. Well, they have finally confirmed it officially through their official website. You can check out their statement here.
The team has cited the expected reasons stating that they are ‘taking this year to evolve the game mechanics and to make sure we’re delivering on the promise of Assassin’s Creed offering unique and memorable gameplay experiences that make history everyone’s playground.’ Which is understandable given that this is exactly what most of the fans of the franchise have been demanding since Unity came out. It has been less than a day since the press release (at the time of writing this) and the internet gaming community is already patting Ubisoft’s back for taking a good decision.
But to think that Ubisoft is actually taking a ‘break’ would be naive, to say the least. They have an Assassin’s Creed movie coming out on 21st December 2016 and thanks to Polygon we know that Ubisoft will be releasing a Watch Dogs sequel before April 2017, according to its fiscal plan for 2016-2017. For more details check out the full article on Polygon here.
More time on development is always a good thing for video games (unless it is Nuke Dukem Forever). Hopefully the next AC installment will be good enough to bring back the Ezio era again and restore the franchise to its previous grandeur.
