Ubisoft Skipping Assassin’s Creed Release in 2019

Ubisoft is changing the Assassin’s Creed release schedule yet again by announcing that 2019 will not see a new entry.

The third-party titan has released a statement during this year’s Gamescom that it is planning to, instead, support Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey throughout 2019. The stealth franchise first skipped a 2016 entry after lackluster sales of 2015’s Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate.

When speaking to Gamespot, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot explained the reasoning for skipping another year.

“On Assassin’s, we had a game [in 2017] 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.”

Guillemot goes on to confirm that Odyssey will see content updates on a “regular basis.”

The Ubisoft CEO even states that those who purchase Odyssey can expect to “get in for a couple of years.”

OnlySP’s Dylan Warman recently published some thoughts on the series, expressing his concerns that Ubisoft may not have waited long enough to jump back into things.

DOOM Eternal Gets Nightmarish Concept Art

Doom Eternal

Bethesda has been pretty quiet about DOOM Eternal the past few months, but the company has reminded onlookers of the project’s stellar design via a piece of concept art.

Entitled ‘Hell Gate’, the concept art details Hell’s equivalent of royalist architecture, complete with DOOM (2016)’s penchant for contrasting colours and strong, angular geometry. The centrepiece of the art is the beloved Doomguy, whose heavy frame looks pretty small compared to the scale.

The art was shared directly on the game’s Twitter page, embedded below:

DOOM Eternal has no release date as of yet, but expect id Software to share more about the game at Bethesda’s E3 conference.
