The Assassin's Creed franchise has seen an annual release every single year since 2009's Assassin's Creed II; if one counted the Nintendo DS game Altaïr's Chronicles, then it's seen a yearly release since the very first Assassin's Creed game in 2007. There have been 17 Assassin's Creed games, spinoffs, and expansions in the past 10 years.

Ubisoft has announced that the next Assassin's Creed game will be launched in 2017. However, the series may no longer be annualised after that, according to Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot.

One of the criticisms of the Assassin's Creed series has been its trips into the present-day tug-of-war between the Assassins and Templar. With the 'Desmond cycle' truly over it's time to get back to it, says Ubisoft.

Assassin's Creed Syndicate will be reintroducing the player to present-day scheming between the groups, and it's "going to make sense" for those following it. They're focusing on making us a central influence to events.
