If you thought the two Assassin Creed titles we’re currently sitting between meant the series was returning to a yearly release, you’d be mistaken. You silly Billy! According to the CEO, who should know about these things, continuation of the stealth adventure will be put on hold throughout 2019 in order to support Assassin’s Creed Odyssey.
Speaking to GameSpot, Yves Guillemot said:
“On Assassin’s, we had a game [in 2018] and we have one this year, but we are not going to have a full-fledged Assassin’s next year.”
“It’s just because the team were working separately, so we have two games now, one year after the other. But next year you’re not going to have a fully fledged one.”
Owing to the words used, the interview then strayed towards the possibility that a smaller instalment may be on the cards. Unfortunately, that was a no as well.
“What you’ll have is lots of content coming on [Assassin’s Creed 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.”
That’s all well and good, but let’s not forget that nobody expected Odyssey to launch so soon after Origins, which was meant to be enjoying a year of support of its own. So who knows what to believe.
In the meantime, just in case you are late to the Ancient Greece hype, Assassin’s Creed Odyssey will set sail on October 5th. Toga’s at the ready!
