Assassin’s Creed Will Return “When It’s Ready”

Ubisoft’s Yves Guillemot has said that the hugely popular Assassin’s Creed franchise will only return it’s ready, and that may not be next year.

“What we saw in the development of the next [Assassin’s Creed] was that we had an opportunity to take it to another level,” he told Gamespot. “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 revolutionise 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.'”


When asked if that meant the game would return in 2017 he replied,”It will be when it’s ready.”

Yves also explained how a hostile Vivendi takeover of Ubisoft would be bad for the business and would stop the company taking risks.

“Creativity, agility, and risk-taking is intrinsic to our industry,” explained Yves, “If you are independent, you know the level you can go to, but if you’re part of a conglomerate that doesn’t understand what your industry is, how fast it’s moving,”

  1. “So we said we’ll take all the time it takes to make the experience fantastic.”

    This alone feels me with hope. I’m quite nonchalant about the franchise but it doesn’t stop me seeing the potential in it. Hopefully, it’s realised in a way that wins even me over! :-)

    • Exactly this Mike, I’m really hoping for a return to form for the series. The yearly releases really damaged the quality of the franchise, it was a shame it took Ubisoft so long to realise but at least they’re taking the right steps now.

  2. FINALLY! They realised that milking it was a bad idea. Black Flag was the last enjoyable AC. I’ve looked at the last two games and well, i suppose they are ok, i guess but Black Flag is so much more fun. Hope they do another Pirate themed AC.

    The franchise either needs to be rebooted properly or distance itself from teh interesting but boring plot of the modern da.
