Ubisoft CEO, Yves Guillemot revealed that his company will not release the latest game series “Assassin’s Creed” in 2019. The company focuses and expands on the Odyssey sequel which is reportedly released in October 2018.
“Regarding ‘Assassin’s, we have released a game (in 2017) and other games this year, but we will not release the latest’ Assassin’s’ game next year. This is because the development team works separately, so we have produced two games now, in succession in the last two years. But next year you will not be playing the latest game from the series, “the CEO told Gamespot at the Gamescom event.
There will be no new “Assassin’s Creed” games or spinoffs or mini games released by Ubisoft. Instead the game developer, according to Guillemot, plans to expand “Assassin’s Creed Odyssey” through DLC.
“What you get is the number of new content in (‘Assassin’s Odyssey’). Teams, on a regular basis, really want to give new possibilities to play, so when you play (‘Odyssey’) this year, actually you will continue to play it for several years, “Guillemot said.
Guillemot did not elaborate on the new content that will be presented, but according to the news reported by Eurogamer there is a possibility that the content will present the expansion themed Atlantis.
Since it first appeared in 2007 to 2015, the “Assassins Creed” series has always released at least one new game every year. Although the popularity of this series has declined, Ubisoft has stopped this game series in 2016 before “Assassin’s Creed” returned successfully through “Assassin’s Creed: Origins “in 2017.
Like “Origins”, Ubisoft strives to rebuild another ancient world seriously through the Odyssey, but also features several supernatural elements that can kill your character.
“Assassin’s Creed Odyssey will be released on October 5 for Playstation 4, Xbox One and PC,” IGN reported.
