Ubisoft Executes Chances of Assassin’s Creed in 2011

July 8, 2010Written by Zak Islam

Due to the massive success Ubisoft’s platformer series, Assassin’s Creed, a sequel, Assassin’s Creed II, was released, and will be shortly followed with Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood. However, no new title in the series will be sneaking its way into 2011, Ubisoft has today confirmed.

Speaking with Eurogamer, Assassin’s Creed associate producer Jean-Francois Boivin executed any chances of an Assassin’s Creed title in 2011.

Honestly, I think for the benefit of everybody – and business can come back and override everything I say because at the end of the day it’s about selling games – I believe that this license needs a breather.You can’t plough a field every year. Once every three years – or once every something – you have to let it breathe. You have to let the minerals back in. I think it’s the same thing with any license, really.

I don’t think there’s going to be an Assassin’s Creed in 2011. I think we’re going to let it breathe a bit and really focus on bringing something new and exciting for the next time around. This [Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood] is the end of Ezio’s story. This is it.

Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood, meanwhile, is currently scheduled for a release on November 19th, 2010.
