Assassin’s Creed as a series starting to feel like it was losing it’s “oomph” after it became a yearly game with fans of the series feeling disappointed at the fact that the games felt rehashed. Ubisoft took a year-long break before releasing Assassin’s Creed Origins change up the formula.
Assassin’s Creed Origins was quite successful and did help reinvent the series but after the announcement of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, many felt that Ubisoft was going back to a yearly cycle of releasing Assassin’s Creed games. At GamesCom 2018, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot had this to say “On Assassin’s, we had a game [in 2018] and we have one this year, but we are not going to have a full-fledged Assassin’s next year. It’s just because the team were working separately, so we have two games now, one year after the other. But next year you’re not going to have a fully fledged one.”
While this can lead people to believe that there might be some sort of spin-off, he further confirmed that it would not be the case. They seem to want to push content for Odyssey as they did with Assassin’s Creed Origins which did add a lot of cool things over time. Assassin’s Creed Odyssey launches on October 5 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC and is set in Ancient Greece. This is the first game in the Assassin’s Creed series that lets you choose to play as either a man or a woman. How this will influence the story and lore is yet to be seen but it’s safe to say that fans should be excited.
