Next Assassin's Creed

Ubisoft has already confirmed that the next Assassin’s Creed game will not come out in 2016, and naturally many of us assumed that Ubisoft might be taking a year off for the franchise. Though it seems that this is not the case for the next Assassin’s Creed game, and Far Cry might also be going away for a quite some time.

Speaking with IGN, Ubisoft VP of Editorial, Tommy François bluntly said that Ubisoft is going for better quality for its game, even if that means skipping Assassin’s Creed or Far Cry games for another year. According to him, the alpha for these games should happen a year before release so that developers can polish the game.

I’ll tell you what, We believe Alpha for these games needs to be one year before release. We’re trying to achieve that. That’s super f****** blunt, I don’t even know if I’m allowed to say this. This is the goal we’re going for: Alpha one year before, more quality, more polish.

So if this means biting the [bullet] and not having an Assassin’s game, or a Far Cry [in 2017], f*** it.

When asked about how many are speculating that taking a break for the franchise is to ease the consumers from annual release of the game and this will also reduce the sales for Far Cry games, François responded that this is not the case as Far Cry games are going up in sales.

No, Far Cry’s only been going up in sales, so that’s not true […] We sometimes try to do too much – I’m actually super-happy. I know it’s perceived like [a marketing decision], and even if it is [perceived that way], it’s actually OK.

Although Ubisoft is not sure when the next Far Cry or Assassins’s Creed game will launch, but they are definitely aiming to revolutionize the IP.

Do you think Ubisoft is taking the right approach for the next Assassin’s Creed and Far Cry games? Let us know in the comments!
