There will be no main Assassin’s Creed game from Ubisoft for 2016. Via the message from the company, Ubisoft is taking the lessons learned from the panning Assassin’s Creed: Unity received, along with feedback from fans, to “re-examine” the franchise. Like fictional Abstergo Entertainment, Ubisoft is using the information they have to change the way they delight their customers.
We’re taking this year to evolve the game mechanics and to make sure we’re delivering on the promise of Assassin’s Creed offering unique and memorable gameplay experiences that make history everyone’s playground.
Instead of a new Assassin’s Creed game, the publisher reminds everyone that they’ll be able to watch Michael Fassbender play assassin Callum Lynch in the movie based on the license. Nothing is true; everything is permitted.
