Hang on, did I type that right? Yes, I did. At GamesCom, Ubisoft said that it will not be launching a new title next year, and will instead be focusing on Assassin’s Creed Odyssey by giving it more content over the coming months.
According to Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot, Assassin’s Creed Odyssey was able to be released this year because it was being worked on by a separate team at the same time that Origins was being made. He also said that there will not be a spin-off game next year to fill in the gap; they are investing heavily into creating new content for Odyssey in order to give the player the best experience they can have.
“What you’ll have is lots of content coming on [Odyssey]. The team really want to give, on a regular basis, some new possibilities for play, so when you get [Odyssey] this year, you’re going to get in for a couple of years, actually.” -Yves Guillemot
I’m looking forward to Odyssey myself and I hope that the content they’re going to release is going to be an extension of the story and characters within. With them taking a year off, here’s to hoping that they can come back in 2020 on some new console hardware, with fresh ideas and a clear future for the series that keeps the spirit of the Assassin’s Creed alive.
Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is set to release October 5th on PC, Xbox One, and PS4.
