In 2014, Ubisoft announced a mobile version of Assassin’s Creed called Assassin’s Creed Identity. The game was only soft launched in select markets around the world, and safe to say that by now many would have forgotten about it. However it looks like Ubisoft has decided to finally release it to the rest of the world.
Its launch has been rather odd. As reported by Touch Arcade, the game disappeared from the app store last month. It was later announced that Ubisoft would be releasing the game as a paid title and will be released to everyone on the 25th of February, which is today, so if you’re curious about the game you can head on over to the iTunes App Store for the download.
During its announcement a couple of years ago, Ubisoft mentioned that it would be available on iOS and Android, but for now it seems like it has only made its way onto iOS devices. No word on when it will be released for Android, but we’ll be keeping our eyes peeled for it. We have to wonder if its sudden release has to do with the fact that we are not getting an Assassin’s Creed title this year.
The franchise has been on a steady annual release for a while now, but it seems that Ubisoft has decided to stop doing that, and that future Assassin’s Creed titles may no longer be released annually.
