Aside from, is also not going to produce yet another companion app for the upcoming Assassin's Creed Syndicate. These apps launch on iOS and Android and had game content tied to them.
This wasn't a welcomed practice by many fans as it took people out the game, and Assassin's Creed: Unity took it to an all-new level with obscene clutter on the main game's map. Ubisoft is sticking to the "core experience" now.
These apps were initially designed to be complimentary to the series - acting more as an interactive map - but they soon got bogged down in 'forced mechanics' that would otherwise lock game content. It even caused trouble with saved games in Unity.
Eventually Ubisoft threw in the towel and unlocked all the special chests tied to the companion app. It seems they're finally listening to fan feedback that these companion apps are broken in more ways than one. Many games (even GTA V) include them as little more than marketing.
"There will not be a companion app," the studio told. "For Assassin's Creed Syndicate, the team wanted to focus all their efforts on the core experience."
Assassin's Creed Syndicate releases on PC in late 2015.
