No "fully-fledged" Assassin's Creed entry or spin-offs coming in 2019

Don't expect a "fully-fledged" Assassin's Creed to be released next year.

Ubisoft doesn't plan to release brand new Assassin's Creed in 2019. Instead, it's opting for plenty of additional content to keep players busy with Assassin's Creed Odyssey.

Speaking with Gamespot at gamescom 2018 this week, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot stated the reason for skipping 2019 was due to having two games released back-to-back.

"We are not going to have a full-fledged Assassin's next year," said Guillemot. "It's just because the team were working separately, [that] we have two games now, one year after the other. But next year you're not going to have a fully fledged one."

Guillemot said instead of a new game or spin-offs, Odyssey will see additional content released on a regular basis.

"When you get [Odyssey] this year, you're going to get in for a couple of years, actually," he said.

Ubisoft said in 2016 it was stepping back from annual releases and re-examining the Assassin’s Creed franchise.

Doing so would provide the firm's studios with more development time, and plenty of room for innovations instead of trying to push a new entry out on a yearly basis.

Assassin's Creed: Odyssey will release October 5 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
