It seems we won’t be getting a new Assassin’s Creed in 2018

Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot has said the company will be focusing on Assassin’s Creed Origins throughout 2018 as opposed to a new title in the series.

As reported by Kotaku news editor Jason Schreier from the most recent earnings call, Ubisoft will be  “concentrating on [sic] the moment on AC: Origins for which we are going to launch a few other DLCs. You will be amazed by what will come on ACO, so that’s the only thing we can say now.”

Some of these upcoming expansions include The Discovery Tour. Launching on February 20, this virtual attraction transforms the world of Assassin’s Creed: Origins into a neat educational exhibit filled with historical facts and trivia.

Next up is The Curse of the Pharaoh DLC which plans to add a variety of new missions, equipment and a sizeable addition to the map when it comes our way on March 6.

With all its major downloadable content launching in the next couple of months, it remains unknown what other plans Ubisoft has for Origins.

Fans can at least keep themselves occupied with Assassin’s Creed Rogue Remastered, which is finally coming to PS4 and Xbox One on March 20, 2018.

The additional year of development worked wonders for Origins, so hearing the next Assassin’s Creed entry may follow a similar path is great to hear. Here’s a snippet from our review:

“Assassin’s Creed Origins is the revitalisation I was desperately hoping for. My cautious optimism has been rewarded by an excellent open-world adventure that could lead to an exciting future for Ubisoft’s blockbuster franchise.”
