For the past few years, Ubisoft has been steadily releasing Assassin’s Creed titles. Given how well they’ve done, despite glitches and bugs, many players have continuously flocked to the new titles, but could 2016 spell the start where Ubisoft might actually skip out on an annual release of the franchise?
According to the folks at Kotaku, it could be. They have heard from a number of sources that 2016 could be when Ubisoft is planning on slowing down the releases of the franchise. This does not mean that the franchise is no longer popular, it’s just that it has been suffering from franchise fatigue over the years, so we suppose it makes sense for them to just take a step back and take their time with the next title.
Speaking of the next title, it has been rumored that the next Assassin’s Creed could take place in Egypt, although we have heard rumors and speculation that Japan is also a possibility. By giving the next installment an extra year of development, it will allow the developers to craft a more polished version of the game, versus older titles like Unity which were riddled with bugs upon its release.
In any case take it with a grain of salt for now, but Ubisoft does have non-Assassin’s Creed titles planned for this year, like the upcoming Far Cry Primal, but what do you guys think? Will you miss having an Assassin’s Creed title to play this year, or are you actually happy it might be taking a break for 2016?
