Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot has said that we may not be getting a new Assassin’s Creed game until 2018.
In an interview with GameSpot, Guillemot said that Ubisoft has “an opportunity to take [the series] to another level” and that having a large portfolio of other titles has given them the chance to “take all the time it takes to make the experience fantastic.”
“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 Guillemot was asked when we should expect to see the franchise return, he replied:
“It will be back when it’s ready. That’s when we feel we have something there.”
