Ubisoft is “concentrating at the moment” on Assassin’s Creed: Origins, rather than a new entry in the once-annual franchise.
Replying to an earnings call question asking if the series would return to a new-game-a-year release schedule, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot said:
“We are concentrating at the moment on AC:O, for which we are going to launch a few other DLCs. So you will be amazed by what will come on AC:O. That’s the only thing we can say now.”
Guillemot went into some depth about the success of Origins, explaining that it is “is on track to almost double players’ playtime versus prior Assassin’s Creed titles”. Ubisoft Executive Director Alain Corre called it “the successful comeback of the Assassin’s Creed franchise.”
