During the last meeting with investors, the CFO of Ubisoft, Alain Martinez, spoke briefly about the new Assassin’s Creed (codenamed Origins), which, as we have learned a few hours ago, will be released during the current fiscal year, ie before March 2018.
We had already talked about it a few days ago, but then a lot of unpublished details about Assassin’s Creed Origins came up and the game came back in the limelight: first the stolen image showing the protagonist of the new episode aboard on a boat; Then rumors about the amplitude of the scenario, apparently three times bigger than the Black Flag; And finally the many information that emerged in the recent hours, followed by official statements by Ubisoft: Assassin’s Creed Origins will include Live Services, like all the upcoming titles for the French company, and will point thereby to engage users for as long as possible.
Ubisoft’s CFO has recently confirmed that all future trademark titles of Ubisoft will have a strong online component, although of a different type in the project base: for example, the support dedicated to Ghost Recon Wildlands is different from that of Rainbow Six Siege, and the same will apply to the forthcoming title of Assassin’s Creed.
The purpose of the French company is to get more than 25% of the proceeds from the investments of recurring players and Assassin’s Creed Origins will help to achieve this goal.
The new Assassin’s Creed will be released before the closing of the fiscal year, and according to some rumors the real reveal of the game would be set for 19 May, while the game could come out on 31 October. As always, this information is just rumor that should be taken with proper precaution, waiting for an official statement from Ubisoft.
