In a brief message from the Assassin’s Creed Team on UbiBlog, it has been confirmed that there will be no new main series Assassin’s Creed game this year. Citing community feedback following Assassin’s Creed Unity, Ubisoft has reportedly updated their 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.”
According to the blog post, we can expect to hear more about this re-examination of the franchise very soon, along with more details on the highly exciting Assassin’s Creed movie starring Michael Fassbender, coming December 21st 2016.
