Many were thrown off back in 2016 with Ubisoft breaking the trend of releasing an Assassin’s Creed title every year. And with some use to the idea of that trend following Origins, some felt the same with the announcement of Odyssey for 2018.
Now it has been confirmed that the publisher will take the year break once again following this Fall. GameSpot spoke with Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot on Ubisoft’s two latest Assassin’s Creed titles. With both Origins and Odyssey started development at the same time explains the back-to-back releases. But for 2019, Ubisoft will be skipping when it comes to releasing another game.
Guillemot to GameSpot on the subject:
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.”
Following up confirming that there also will not be a spin-off title from the game’s universe either for next year. Although the year break was something to adjust to for many fans, it payed out well with seeing how Origins was received.
