Ubisoft is currently taking a break on one of the most famous game franchises in the world, Assassin’s Creed.
Also, when it returns, it may not produce the yearly releases we have all come to expect.
During its recent earnings call, Assassin’s Creed Publisher Ubisoft said that there wont be a new game this year as the publisher is taking time to re-examine the franchise.
New details also reveal that Ubisoft may not release a new game every year when the series eventually returns. Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot said during Ubisoft’s Investor Day that while releases would be regular, they won’t necessarily be annual.
“We saw it was time to give it lots of time so (developers) could really work on the property and all the mechanics to make sure we could take (the series) to another level,” he said.
“What we are seeing today is promising. We will be able to come on a regular basis (but) we can’t say every year.”
Ubisoft’s CFO Alain Martinez later added that once this new plan comes to fruition, and there’s enough innovation for a new game, the company might return to annual releases.
