Ubisoft is teasing more downloadable content for its well-received Assassin’s Creed Origins, and is hinting at extended support for the open-world title in favour of a new game being released every year.
Previously, Ubisoft had released a new game in the series every year. Unfortunately it led to a dip in quality as quantity took priority. However, since the series took a short break to allow for an extended development cycle for Origins, the series has returned to form with many calling Origins the best in the series.
Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot has hinted that we may not be getting a new Assassin’s Creed game so often. When asked if the series would still be annualised going forward, Guillemot stated that the focus is on Origins for the moment and that there are a few DLCs to come and that players will be “amazed by what will come” to Assassin’s Creed Origins in the future.
Looking at his comments at face value, it seems that Ubisoft has learned its lesson when it comes to annualising its games. We’ve already seen the publisher support its games for a long time post-release. Just look to Rainbow Six Siege, For Honor, The Division and Ghost Recon Wildlands.
Would you prefer one game every couple of years with more post-release DLC? Or are you a fan of buying a new release every year? Let us know down in the comments section below.
