We Won’t Be Seeing A New Assassin’s Creed Game Until 201X

Ubisoft is not releasing a new game this year. The delay is disappointing to fans.

Ubisoft Is Taking A Break From Annual Releases For Assassin’s Creed

In February 2016, the video game developing company Ubisoft announced that they would be delaying a new Assassin's’ Creed game this year. Every fall it had been protocol to release a new title to the series but this year they’re shaking things up.

This is the year that broke the six-year streak for Ubisoft’s release of Assassin’s Creed. Ever since 2009, players anticipated a new storyline to follow with every year that went by. The developers believe that an alpha version should be completed one year before release.

For the First Year in Six Years, There Will Be Not Be a New Game To Avoid Disappointment Like Unity

According to Ubisoft’s message released to fans worldwide, it is said that they are basing their suspension on the disappointing release of AC Unity in 2014. Along with a less than desirable outcome with Unity, a buggy release of Syndicate in 2015 also proved it was time for change of procedure.

Feedback from gamers and fans poured in. So although Ubisoft was nine games into the game starting from 2007, they listened to the voices of their supporters and took action to be proactive. Instead of consistently spitting out new content as before, they will be going a different route to ensure a release of a first-grade, superior game that doesn’t compare to previous titles.

The way they figured this could be accomplished was to take a break. They want to improve all aspects of an alpha game in the works so that it will be a massively anticipated game. In order to wow and impress many long-time gamers and new audiences, one must invest more time and energy into said game.

This new route may become a new trend for the team at Ubisoft, if taking the time to fine-tune each aspect turns out to yield exceptional results.

Will We See A New Assassin’s Creed Game In 2017?

Sources still have not confirmed whether or not we will actually see a new game in 2017. With mixed information and leaked news, it is still in the air whether we will have a new Assassin’s Creed game to play in the upcoming year.

What we do know from said leaks and various informants is that the game is supposedly set in Egypt. The code name for the next game is called Empire.

Despite the possibility of not seeing a new game release, there are other options to hold Assassin Creed aficionados over. Sidescroller games and even a movie will be available for those who need their fix while they wait for a new game to come out.

It has been speculated that the producers of the movie are happy because that’s one less distraction in their way. It works out greatly for views and marketing of the movie release. Many would rush to see the movie because they didn’t get a game.

Although there will not be a new Assassin’s Creed game in 2016 and possibly not even in 2017, there will be other releases available. An Assassin’s Creed movie, some sidescroller games, and the Ezio collection are just some examples. The game developers decided that this is the best course of action to create the utmost anticipated game.
