Ubisoft’s action-adventure video game series, Assassin’s Creed won’t return in 2017, according to CEO Yves Guillemot.
In an interview with GameSpot, Guillemot was quizzed why 2016 was the time to take out Assassin’s Creed from the yearly release, he replied: “What we saw in the development of the next [Assassin’s Creed] was that we had an opportunity to take it to another level.
So we said we’ll take all the time it takes to make the experience fantastic. It was feasible because we have other games.
There’s a huge potential in this game to revolutionize the IP, so we said, ‘Let’s make sure we change our model so we have more time and that we can bring back a greater experience.'”
He was asked when will it make its return, he replied: “It will be back when it’s ready. That’s when we feel we have something there.”
Yves Guillemot was asked to tell us more about what he meant by “revolutionizing the IP”, he concluded, “It’s difficult to say right now. You’ll actually make up your mind on that when you see it.”
Ubisoft does, however, have other releases from Assassin’s Creed universe for the holiday seasons, including the Ezio Collection and a movie with December 2016 release.
