It's Confirmed, Ubisoft Wonít Release a New Assassinís Creed Game in 2016

Ubisoft finally confirmed that they won't be releasing an Assassin's Creed game this year for the first time since 2009.  While last year's Assassins Creed Syndicate was met with positive reviews, Ubisoft noted in its quarterly financial report that sales were slower than expected.  Ubisoft said that the launches of new entries in the South Park and Watch Dogs series, among others, still promised a strong fiscal year even without its flagship action series.


"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.  You could read the complete message of the Assassin's Creed Team on this link.

The company also plans to launch a sequel to Watch Dogs before April 2017, as laid out at the end of its earnings report.  Here's hoping that they also release a new Splinter Cell game.  We could use another great stealth game for this generation.  

Well, it will be unusual for me on not having to play an Assassins Creed game this year.  I've played all the main Assassins Creed games except for Rogue (because that game came along with Unity and I don't have time to play 2 AC games at that time).  I've enjoyed playing Assassins Creed Syndicate last year, and I even got the platinum trophy for it.  If Ubisoft could make significant improvements on their next Assassins Creed game, it could probably be worth the wait for Assassins Creed fans.

In the meantime, I could live on having to play a new Watch Dogs game at the end of the year in the absence of Assassins Creed.

Phew. Good. Annual AC games were hard to keep up with. I hope they stick to bi-annual.
I'll take my time getting to Syndicate.

Well...considering there's a new sidescrolling Assassins Creed every month they'll do just fine.

"I won't hate the annual releases because that means I get more AC yearly"-quote after playing AC2. Fast forward to now and the drop off in storytelling and Wow factor began after brotherhood (loved that one).

AC3 was the pivotal point of mediocrity in the series. Killing off Desmond and any remnant of the original modern vision killed the series vibe, suspense, and the overall "high stakes" appeal. But the overall game was a reminder AC needed to be revamped both setting and story wise. These euro white male stories are getting long in the tooth and even Connor was a "white" Indian. But AC3 made" me abandon the series all together only to be reunited when I "borrowed" (definitely no purchase) Unity which I enjoyed.

With that said, Syndicate was a return to form. But it was also another Sandbox checklist mess that I enjoyed. Hopefully AC next year will be a true beast because I'm not sure these developers have made their best AC game yet.

AC went down hill ages ago when ubisoft jumped on the milk train like every other company. Shame because it could have been something real special. Just feels to me like there are only a few good companies left who dont just care about the money but care about actually take their time to make a fresh new game. Thank god we have naughty dog.

Well the AC games are still decent. None are truly terrible but a shame greatness never lined up with this series consistently.

IMO, I hope Ubi finds a way to get rid of the Animus for good, I hate that thing.

And, yeah, yeah, yeah, I know it's the way Ubi uses to pass the loading times, but I still hate it!
