After taking a break from the main Assassin's Creed series in 2016 to regroup, came Ubisoft in 2017 roar with Assassin & # 39; s Creed Origins. The break was good for the development team, like Origins was exactly the reboot that needed the franchise. Ubisoft will follow Origins up with Assassin & # 39; s Creed Odyssey later this year, but instead of going back to the annual release schedule, the team waits another year for a new title to be launched.
According to GameSpot, Yos Guillemot, CEO of Ubisoft revealed this week at Gamescom 2018 that no new item will appear in the Assassin's Creed series in 2019. Instead, the team will focus on offering additional content for Odyssey throughout the year, just as it supports Origins in the past months.
"On Assassin & # 39; s, we had a game [in 2018] and we have one this year, but we will not have a full-fledged one Assassin & # 39; s next year, "said Guillemot." It's because the team worked separately, so we now have two games, one year after the other. But next year you will not have a full-fledged one. "
There will not only be a main line Assassin's Creed in 2019, but Guillemot also confirmed that the spinoffs will also be put on hold for at least a year. All resources of the team will be deployed Odyssey.
"[The time] gave the team the opportunity to really bring what they wanted, "Guillemot explained." The community reacts very well and when I see what we bring OdysseyI know the community that has come back into it Origins will be surprised. "
Assassin & # 39; s Creed Odyssey comes to PS4, Xbox One and PC on October 5th.
