Launching a video game franchise on an annual basis can be very profitable, but the risk of losing the interest of fans also becomes high. Now it has been confirmed that Assassin's Creed will not have a new installment in 2016, something unusual since Assassin's Creed 2 appeared in 2009. It was time for a breather!
Probably the decision was made in 2014, when the franchise's reputation was shaken by the disastrous Assassin's Creed Unity, which came to the market full of technical failures. Assassin's Creed Sydicate came out Christmas 2015, we imagine because it was already in a very advanced stage of development.
So Assassin's Creed won't have a new installment in 2016, but it seems that its replacement this Christmas will be Watch Dogs 2, something that will can be concluded from the launch estimates of Ubisoft, the company responsible. Meanwhile, the developers of Assassin's Creed say they will work on a new style of gameplay that brings something new, as they say that since the launch of Unity they have listened carefully to the gaming community.
Of course, it seems that the 2016 Christmas appointments will not be missing the corresponding FIFA (from Electronic Arts) and Call of Duty (from Activision). So the rest of the annual sagas of the industry will continue at the foot of the canyon.
Interested: The new Need for Speed is coming in March
We don't need an Assassin's Creed in 2016
The Ubisoft saga offered us truly memorable moments, despite the fact that the first installment was quite boring. But the yearly abuse has married users and affected the freshness of the latest titles. Rumors suggest that in 2017 we will see an Assassin's Creed set in Egypt, with profound changes to the gameplay.
So Assassin's Creed will not have a new installment in 2016, but in the middle of Christmas of that year the film based on the saga will be released, so it will continue to be current. In any case, surely a year without a new game makes us look forward to the next chapter.
How about there not being a new Assassin's Creed coming out in 2016? Will you miss it, or do you think it was time to give the franchise a break?
