Ubisoft announced yesterday that it won’t release any Assassin’s Creed game in 2016 as it is currently “re-examining the Assassin’s Creed franchise.” Now this is the right thing to do as both Unity and Syndicate were not up to what players had expected from a next-gen Assassin’s Creed game.
This means that Ubisoft will take this year to evolve the game mechanics and to make sure it will deliver on the promise of Assassin’s Creed offering unique and memorable gameplay experience.
As Ubisoft claimed:
“This year, we also are stepping back and re-examining the Assassin’s Creed franchise. As a result, we’ve decided that there will not be a new Assassin’s Creed game in 2016. Since the release of Assassin’s Creed Unity, we’ve learned a lot based on your feedback. We’ve also updated our development processes and recommitted to making Assassin’s Creed a premier open-world franchise. We’re 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.”
And that is that everyone!
