Assassins Creed to be Skipping 2016

Assassins Creed has been on shaky ground these past few years. Fans heavily criticized these last few entries, particularly Unity, for not holding...

    A few of you may recall that I wrote an article a little over a month ago on how rumors about Assassins Creed potentially skipping over 2016 for its next big release began to circulate. If you want to read that article then please click here. This article isn't about that, but instead, Ubisoft has actually gone on and confirmed that there will not be another major Assassins Creed title being released in 2016, instead they'll look to release it in 2017.

    As mentioned earlier, this comes after rumours of this exact scenario began to fly around the internet, seemingly originating from a developer over at Ubisoft. Those same rumours also claimed that this game would serve as more of a prequel to the other titles, and that this game would be set in Egypt, which would definitely be a first for this series.

    Rumours aside for now, let's talk about more information that we're certain about. Ubisoft have claimed that this is not a permanent move to a bi-annual schedule, rather that this is an isolated case and every game which comes up into question after this will also be treated as such. You shouldn't let this phase you, as there is a plethora of Assassins Creed content scheduled to be released this year including a movie. A new Watch Dogs title may also hit shelves according to Ubisoft, you can read more about that here. What do you think? Is this a step in the right direction? Leave your thoughts below!

    I hope this is true and they skip 2016 and bring out a game that is on par with the first 3

    If it lets me play a better and more polished game, it's definitely a step in the right direction :smile:

    Finally they listen to the fans. Polish up on the game, and tweak the fixes before releasing the official game to the public. Good Job Ubisoft!

    Glad they're doing this, I will still be gaming by then. :smile:
    Saves me $60 this November.

    The reason they're doing this is because there was a fire at Ubisoft HQ and all the chimpanzees got out, so they are probably hurting for developers right now.

    But seriously this will probably be good for the franchise.

    Why make another article about this? Just curious, could of just updated the other one. I understand this one is a little different but still. It's not much news. Like I said before though, I hope this makes the game come out better.

      It would have, but it's so buried now that almost nobody would notice unless they were following the article.

      That makes since, unless there's a way to bump an article.

      There is, but it still wouldn't be very practical.

    Heard that because of this decision, Ubisoft is taking a hit of around $300 million and something about investors pulling out from the franchise.
