Assassin's Creed May Take the Year Off
Assassin's Creed has been annually released for the past six years. In that time we have visited Italy, The American Revolution, England, and many other locales. It has been so steady that it has been hard to keep up at times, especially in 2014 where Unity was released alongside Rogue.
According to Kotaku's latest post , an insider has been told the company will be working this year to keep the game in development and work on creating a more polished, refined experience for 2017. While no official announcement has been stated, there speculation has garnered support from multiple sources.
As far as the game itself, the most we know is it could potentially take place in Egypt and is code named "Empire".
This is a welcome announcement, as an avid fan of Assassin's Creed I am overloaded with the amount of gameplay I have left. I have not fully explored Unity, would love to go back and play Black Flag, and have not even glanced at Syndicate. There is a ton of Assassin's Creed to play out there, and an extended year to focus on making an even better one is good news for the franchise.
