New Assassin’s Creed Game Confirmed To Launch By March 2018

After lots of rumors and a few leaks, Ubisoft has confirmed a new Assassin’s Creed will be out during the current fiscal year, which runs through March 31, 2018.

The news was shared as part of Ubisoft’s earnings report today. The company subsequently shared a GIF on Twitter with the game’s logo and the words “a new era begins.”

On May 9, reports indicated that the follow-up to Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate would be called Assassin’s Creed: Origins. The title, it was suggested, reflected Ubisoft’s intention to reboot the series, and the text in the image above further suggests that will be the case.

An off-screen image purporting to be a “first look” at Origins was also leaked alongside the name. It featured a bow-wielding character on a boat, calling to mind elements of Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag. Reports of an Egyptian setting first surfaced in 2016. However, the game was believed to be called Assassin’s Creed: Empire at the time.

Ubisoft did not release a mainline entry in the Assassin’s Creed series in 2016. This, it said, was so that it could leverage new technology and “give the brand a new dimension.”

“Since the release of Assassin’s Creed Unity, we’ve learned a lot based on your feedback,” said the company’s CEO, Yves Guillemot. “We’ve also updated our development processes and recommitted to making Assassin’s Creed a premier open-world franchise.

“We’re taking [2016] 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.”

The last two Assassin’s Creed games, Unity and Syndicate, all contributed towards a decline in the franchise’s quality and prominence. Unity was maligned for its bugs and technical issues when it launched in 2014, while the subsequent game, Syndicate, underperformed at retail. Ubisoft is no doubt hoping the new game can buck the trend.

Hey everyone, I'm Jonathan but people will know me as Jon... I enjoy hiking and exploring the outside world as well as getting to see fantastic views. It can bring you to the most beautiful places on earth and into contact with amazing plants and wildlife and can be done all year round which is why I enjoy it so much despite it being challenging sometimes due to the weather - it has allowed me to meet a lot of new people and experience things I wouldn't have before. I also find it relaxing and interesting. I also really enjoy blogging and sharing my experiences with similar people. Hopefully you will read mine. My company Adventures Gate displays my other hobby - gaming! I love collecting items to do with gaming and playing in general. I guess I am a bit of a geek when it comes to this. Adventures Gate now offer free postage options when you spend more than £20 (there may be a small additional charge for larger items). That`s free 1st class post in the UK and free airmail to Europe.
