After the efforts of a yearly release schedule started to show its cracks, Ubisoft opted to take a step back with Assassin's Creed. Skipping out 2016 meant 2017 is the year for the hidden blade to reemerge - and it looks like we just got our first look at what's to come.
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.
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.
new Assassin's Creed: Syndicate has just been officially revealed through their live stream announcement. What's clear is that the streets of London are the battleground for class warfare between Assassins and Templars.
A pre-alpha gameplay walkthrough showed horse-drawn carriages as a major mode of transport in Syndicate, along with a new rope dart accessory to easily scale buildings. It's very 'Gangs of New York' inspired.
